    Why is it that all of these websites NEVER give a direct link to the topic they are talking about? Clicking on any of the tags doesn't do anything. If you really want to help, why not post the direct link to Best Buys pre-order site?

      It looks like you can only pre-order in-store or at Best Buy Mobile.

    Hopefully Amazon won't be too far behind.

    I'm curious as to why TMO isn't part of this offering?
