    Certain gov't agencies were able to pre-order starting 8/21, with no guarantee of fulfillment. The email from our rep said that VZW "should be launching the new device on or before 9/1."

    "They will be fulfilled as soon as the item is available to ship from our warehouse"

    That said, the pricing was set at $199.99 with data-only plan, $149.99 with data+voice.

    This is nothing new, companies always give the gov't, and I would assume large corps, a break. No contracts, big price breaks, and pre-consumer availability are just a few things they get. It makes sense though, if you know the agency won't be calling VZW tech support and will buy a thousand of some device in a week, why not sell them early and discounted?
