HTC EVO 3D now available for Pre-Order at Best Buy
For those of you who are interested in the getting your hands on the highly anticipated HTC EVO 3D, you’ll be happy to hear that Best Buy has been notifiying its employees of an HTC EVO 3D pre-order launch that is supposed to happen on may 2nd.
Don’t expect Best Buy to set up some cardboard ads in the front of the store just yet; they have asked all employees to only talk about pre-ordering the device only if someone inquires about it. They also made sure to add a few other precautions to employees as well. Go ahead and read the whole note yourself below.
Are Customers Asking for the Sprint EVO 3D?
Although dates and details are very limited on this device, there are some customers willing to wait. As always, we encourage customers to choose from Best Buy Mobile’s phenomenal phone selection and pair it with the Buy Back program. However, we realize some customers either aren’t ready to upgrade or are willing to wait until the unconfirmed launch date. Therefore…we are “quietly” opening the Sprint EVO 3D pre-sale (SKU 2612225), starting this Monday, May 2.
What CAN we say: The HTC EVO 3D, the first glasses-free 3D 4G device, is coming “this summer” to Best Buy.
What CAN’T we say: Anything from the blogs or unofficial sources. Much of this is unreliable and could mislead customers. Inevitably, customers will find this information and it is acceptable to be aware of it, but do not share said information with customers as factual.
What CAN we do: Starting May 2, Best Buy Mobile will begin reserving product through the pre-sale process. Click here for the generic flyer.
What CAN’T we do: Do NOT actively promote this pre-sale until it’s formally announced. Do NOT create signage and drive customers towards this pre-sale. This is meant to capture only those customers coming into our stores inquiring about the EVO 3D who otherwise are not purchasing another phone today. In other words, if a customer asks, you can tell him or her about the pre-sale. Otherwise, mum’s the word.
Pretty sneaky stuff Best Buy, although not sneaky enough since blogs have gotten a hold of this document. We will keep you updated on the summer release of the first 3D 4G device.
