It wasn't in demo mode but I didn't spend much time with it. You are probably the first one in our group to get it. I should have picked one up when they were selling for $69 but I'll stick with my Edge. I'd also like it if that Beautiful Music channel becomes available on the radios. But I'd also like to see the Village returning to the radios. That Mary Sue Twohy show on Sunday mornings is really good but it would be better if it was available all the time.
