Okay looks like I am off to camp.....

I had not intended on "camping" the Pre but a wager was put up A particular individual stated that I would not camp the pre..... to the extent that he would pony up $500 if I were to show up at work on Saturday with a Pre in hand ..... The money is in a 3rd party's hand and I am preparing to delegate the rest of the days work out and off to camp I go! ......

Cost of Pre $199 + Tax and approx 70 for touchstone .... I can not afford NOT to camp lol.

I know I will look the fool but camping I am ...

Wish me luck

If you can get your hands on one, then more power to you. Enjoy the additional $230 that you'll have in your pocket tomorrow.

That sounds like a great bet with your friend.

 

Hope you enjoy the Pre when you get it!

Isn't that $299 for the pre, $199 after you get the $100 rebate?

Not if you buy it at Best Buy or Radio Shack.

Well, if he goes to BestBuy or RadioShack, then it's $199.99 since they do instant rebates...so it really depends on where he's going to go to get the phone.

Isn't it kinda early to start camping out? Why don't you wait until nightfall when the sun and temperature has both gone down?

Ok 2 - 3 got here around 4pm with 4-6 around 5 and 7 at 6:30pm - The mobile manager came out and told us see you in the morning and if a number 10 shows up to send them home. Said that they only got 9 of them andreferencing an online Best Buy data base said that the numbers are wrong there were double orders listed. So this store shows 18 but in fact only 9 So if your in S. Austin there are 2 spots left. I am number 1 WOOOT

Good crowd and we are pulling the all nighter.. I don't think I will be a big hit at work tomorrow being engrossed in the new Pre not to mention showing up in the same clothes I left in lol.

So barring a drive by shooting or some unholy divine intervention I get my phone and I win the wager!!!!!

here is a pic from the line I will post more tommorrow morning.

And I must say it has actually been nice camping it out I have met a lot of interesting people.

The picture is not linking for some reason so if you want to see a bunch of guys sitting in chairs ....
