For those of you desperately trying to get your hands on a Motorola Droid X handset from Verizon, we have an update for you regarding stock availability. Reports are suggesting that the majority of Verizon stores are still sold out of units.
As reported from eWeek, Mark McKechnie, a Gleacher & Co. analyst recently polled 20 Verizon Wireless retail stores over the weekend to check stock availability for the Droid X and found the device was sold out everywhere – despite the fact that Verizon ensured customers that stock levels would remain healthy.
There is not a lot you can do about high demand sometimes though, and the Motorola Droid X has flew off shelves since it’s launch last week. However, McKechine did have some vital information for those thinking about getting one online.
Apparently, some Verizon stores told him that if he ordered a Droid X online, it would arrive for home delivery by July 27 or July 28 if he ordered this week.
This may or may not help you, but here is a list of his results from various Verizon stores:
