    With Microsoft's history of understocking (strategically or for legit concerns over demand), it's not inconceivable to think that pre-orders are going to sell out lightning fast. Especially with their statement about their initial short-term strategy. Subscribe to this point and the first person to see the article announcing the release date and pre-orders starting at the MS store and/or AT&T store post it here? I have a feeling pre-orders are going to come and go FAST. Maybe the second stock will arrive before the holidays but I wouldn't wanna wait.

    So if you catch a story about a release date/pre-orders beginning, POST!

    I feel this should be merged with the existing preorder thread.

    Besides they are already taking orders at Microsoft stores.

    At the online store? Not from what I see and the local MS store is a 5 minute drive from me and they weren't taking pre-orders either.

    Preordered mine at one the local stores and I know many others from other preorder thread have as well. They have a sku for the XL, and when they scan it shows up $25, but they are advertising $0 so they get an override for it.

    I'll give them a call but I went the on Friday and they weren't taking pre-orders. Maybe the sales rep I spoke to didn't know or something. I probably have a better shot getting one there than online as they'll probably sell out fast.

    The existing pre-order thread is for the XL and from what I'm reading no one seems to be sure which stores will be selling which phones and if any will sell both.

    Okay this is definitely a YMMV situation. I have gone to the MS store and been told they werent taking pre-orders and I just called them again since people were claiming they were able to pre-order through their local store. Still no dice. This is the store in White Plains, NY for anyone thinking of trying. They're not currently taking pre-orders. Your only option is to get on the mailing list which I'm already on through the website. I hope the 5th Avenue store opens soon. Maybe I'll have a better shot at a pre-order since that store is undoubtedly gonna be badass.
