Verizon told CNET the company had "done everything possible" to ensure adequate supply of the Droid X
, but there's apparently no anticipating the demand for a top-tier smartphone -- like the Droid Incredible
before it, the giant 1GHz Motorola handset is already out of stock, both online (today's orders suffer a ten-day delay) and in many brick and mortar stores. Verizon confirmed the shortages in a communique to Android Central
, saying the company was pleased with initial sales, and that though they were "successful at keeping up with early demand" supplies are presently "low or out." Tomorrow's just not going to work out, our anti-gravitational friend
-- can we take a July 27th raincheck?
