bestbuy will sell the palm pre in two phases

Looks like BestBuy has now created a 2-step release to ease the expected shortages of the Palm Pre. From what we can tell, phase 1 will last from June to July with less focus on marketing and only allowing around 300 stores to having working demo units on the floor. Phase 2 will begin in late June, probably after the second shipment of Pre’s are received. So far, all BestBuy stores have been given strict instruction not to create waiting lists or put any units on hold. Apparently the shipment of phase 2 units will be allocated to those stores which sold best during phase 1. Word is that a waiting list / back order list will be available after the initial (inevitable) sell out while customers wait for the second shipment. We’ll keep you updated.
