Brand new device, shipped with 0% charge, damage to battery?

I just received my device, brand new from Amazon.  When I went to activate it, it would not even boot up.  When I plugged it in to charge, the battery showed 0%.  How much charge was in your device when  you received it?  Should I be concerned that this was sitting in the warehouse for a long period of time at 0% state of charge?  Generally, leaving a lithium-ion battery at 0% state of charge damages the battery and reduces it's overall capacity.  Should I return it and get another one?
