Best Buy full for preorders

I went to my local best buy today to reserve my Evo 4g for launch day - to my utter dissapointment I was only guaranteed an evo from the second shipment, which likely will arrive 5-7 days after June 4th.

The rep told me that HQ sent out an email LAST NIGHT saying all future Evo preorders are not guaranteed to arrive on June 4th. I am the first on the "waiting list" however, so I assume my chances are still good to get one this route. I have no faith in RadioShack and will avoid them at all costs.

Anybody else getting the same story?
 
At any rate , there should be enough to go around. Why some people waited this long is beyond my understanding! However, from what I got at Best Buy, its simple. If they have lets say 40 people on the list, Sprint will send them 40, plus around 15-20 to sell within the store. So I'd say most people that got on the list will be getting it on the 4th. And whoever mentioned Radio Shack, there not a bad store to deal with at all. I was in and out. And there seems to be a small Rumor via Engadget, that they will have them rolling out on the 30th! So in any event, everyone who pre-ordered should get an EVO. I doubt we'll see a shortage like the Incredible. I mean Sprint/Google, just gave out 5000 EVO's yesterday at there event...That's a good sign that they have more then enough to satisfy there demand.

I have a feeling they will be released a bit earlier than the anticipated June 4th. Can I have the link to where you saw the 30th on Engadget?

They should do the same thing like how they did with the Hero, if you're a reward zone member that you'd be able to pick it up a few days earlier.
