I got one, love it.

Downfall is, the stupid device doesnt work with Mac OSX 10.6 64bit =|

Also, the Telecom sticker is very cheap, but not too worried about that.

the fact its not compatiable with 10.6 64bit is a HUGE downfall.

I got one too yesterday afternoon on my way home from work. Sure Sylvia Park was out of the way a bit, but still made my evening meetings on time :)

Got mine as soon as the Queen St store opened yesterday. Quite a few people were there right off the bat :)

Mine works fine with 10.6 64bit?

Agreed about the sticker, have taken mine off...

are you sure you're actually in 64bit mode?

I can get it to work in 32bit SL, but not 64bit.

Did a little bit of research and someone wrote a post saying that its not 64bit compatible.

I got one at 9.05am yesterday - was the second person at the Takapuna retail store to get one.

Yay for me!

Picked one up yesterday at 9am as the store opened.... was lucky as I had a queue of about 7 or 8 people immediately behind me.

Finally got around to using it. I am sitting in a lounge where my Iphone has no reception (with Voda) and I am getting 4 bars of 3g with Telecom XT!

Did a speedtest to an Auckland server and got 1.1Mb down, 0.11Mb up, 300ms latency. I realise Speedtest isn't the "be all". The speeds aren't fantastic, but more than adequate for browsing and email.

I give it two thumbs up :)
