Don't tell anybody! There's a note being passed around that we just happen to have text from, one that's telling all the employees at Best Buy Mobile - aka the most fun part of the whole store, that they're able to speak of this pre-order only to people who ask about it specifically. If you say you might want to check out a different phone, you're out of luck! Have a look below at how you can reserve your HTC EVO 3D at a Best Buy today, and keep it a secret!
Have a peek here at the text from this infamous note supposedly sent out to Best Buy employees. In it, you'll find that not only are they not allowed to speak of the pre-order unless someone asks about the EVO 3D and ONLY the EVO 3D, they mention that staff is not allowed to speak about blogs. No blogs because they are unreliable and should be shot on the spot! You evil blogs, how dare you interfere with Best Buy's business!
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.
That text is pretty clear, is it not? Now I suppose you'd like more info on the actual device, yes? Why don't you have a look at our hands-on with the device. Or perhaps super secrets are really enticing to you today? In that case, you're going to want to head back to our giant flopper: HTC EVO 3D Features Micro-USB Port with HDMI Capability. Have a peek at an Accessories Rundown and even check out how thick the EVO 3D is compared to the HTC ThunderBolt. Yippee!
