Our good friend Kellex over at Droid-Life has gotten his hands on an internal memo to Best Buy Mobile stores. The memo details a promotional initiative where they should expect weekend like levels of customers and activations. The memo also suggests that Best Buy Mobile staff both a manager and a lead “wherever possible”.
So let’s analyze this announcement: First off it’s not the Samsung Galaxy S II, is much as you want to think it might be, it’s not. Samsung has announced a press event for the SGSII launch on August 29th in New York. The SGSII will not be launched on US carriers before that. It’s also not a Verizon specific announcement, Verizon promotions (like the $100 for a basic phone here) are almost exclusively held on Thursdays, and on the rare instance, Fridays.
As Kellx ponders, it could just be a huge mega promotion for all carriers, maybe all smartphones free on new two year agreements? Perhaps it’s buy one get one free on all smartphones? Maybe it’s a Blackberry event? Perhaps Best Buy will do buy a connected tablet get a smartphone free? Or maybe it’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
One things for sure though, it’s not too long to wait,the 17th is Wednesday and the 22nd is a week from today.
