    Texas Pre-fans, here you go!

    I am going to begin my contribution by collecting the Best Buy and Radio Shack locations that will have stock on launch day. And I've gotta say, where's the love for Houston? I haven't found any data showing h-town numbers so if you have them please post them up!

    I guess Houston isn't high-tech enough.

    I mean, all we have is NASA, HP (former Compaq World HQ), the energy industry, and the Houston Medical Center (considered the most technologically advanced medical center in the world) to name a very few. The people who work at those places would surely not be considered sufficiently qualified to operate such a high-tech phone.



    On a more serious note, I would love to get mine at Best Buy, but it looks like NONE of the BB's in my area will have them, forcing me to deal with Sprint's out-dated (and suspect) rebate program.

    Then again, I may just wait it out until I can just find one at BB. I bought all four of our Instincts at BB and it was the most pleasant cell phone purchase I've ever had (in my 10 years with Sprint).

    No Radio Shacks in Austin either? That's a little hard to believe... guess I gotta start calling.

    That Best Buy list isn't complete. There isn't one Dallas store on there.

    The best buy list showing Houston area stores only has maybe 1/3 the total stores in this town, if that.

    I'm waiting for ones on the North side.

    I see Katy, the Galleria, etc. now that I look. Still though, Houston is bigger than Dallas and they have a ton of stores on the list!

    I say old Bean, I live in Beaumont myself! Good to see the Golden Triangle represented on here. Where are you getting yours at? I definitely don't see Beaumont on either of those lists...

    There are no dallas stores on the BB list.
    The Radioshack list appeares to be only for DFW area which is Radioshack HQ so i understand all of them in the area getting phones.

    I'm very anxious for a Dallas Best Buy list.

    I do see that two Radio Shacks near me will have the Pre in stock. Am I remembering correctly that Radio Shack will honor instant rebates like Best Best Buy does?

    You forgot TI (Texas Instrument) which built the processor for Pre. But yes Houston never gets the respect (sigh Rox-Lakers series).

    Anyways I dont think BestBuy is the best bet to get Pre because is Sharpstown mall location is getting only 24 then there will be line there. I will go to Westpark Sprint store which is repair center is bigger than regular Sprint store. My experience is that they always have more phones than other Houston Stores. I called them but they dont have waiting list. The person I called said they will start waiting list after 1st day sellout. Wierd isnt it? They already know it will be a sellout.
    Technological superiority has never won a product battle. If that were the case we would all be flying in supersonic Concordes and using Apple computers.

    The key to winning the battle is a combination of price, convenience, marketing, sound business model and a bit of luck.

    I'm in Nederland actually. I was going to head to BB in Beaumont, but I'm on SERO and I've read that they will have trouble converting me to an everything plus referral plan so I might go to Sprint @ Parkdale mall. There is a waiting list at the Port Arthur store with 9 names on it so far!

    Yikes. I'm actually planning on camping out at the Sprint Store on Dowlen Rd in Beaumont, there by the mall. They told me it was first come first serve, so I figure if I get there early I should have no trouble. Drop by and pay me a visit if you're out late Friday night, I'll probably be the only one in line.

    at first i was thinking ok i see the galleria location (thinking the one at 635 and midway was that one) but thinking to myself where the heck is the north park location... all i could see was south park.. then for that matter where was oakcliff or mesquite etc...

    you dont think due to all the radio shacks getting them here in dfw that best buy wont cover this area? i mean i highly doubt that but i only asked the park lane location about it and the guy didnt have any clue what i was talking about...

    i know i'm not from dallas, but i know that the arlington best buys are goig to get some pres...and there are arlington locations on the radio shack list as well, so i don't think that correlates with whether or not dallas best buys will get the pre. i am pretty sure they will...
