BestBuy Still Doesn’t Know Which Stores Will Receive Pre – Details Still Aren’t Final

Yours Truly walked into BestBuy today to chat it up with a sales rep there about the Palm Pre and June 6th. Apparently, some stores – even those who sell Sprint phones – don’t yet know if they will be receiving the Pre. Managers have apparently told them that if they sell Sprint phones then there will be a “good chance” that they will be selling the Pre, but there is a possibility that not at all BestBuy stores will have the Pre in stock on June 6th.

As for the stock numbers, no information was known, or at least the sales rep played dumb with me. I asked him if he could confirm or deny the rumor of 4 devices per store, but he just shook his head and said, “no one really knows at this point”.

Another interesting tidbit that I was able to pick up is that no BestBuy employees will be able to purchase a Pre at launch and must instead wait until phase 2 marketing to purchase one. Bummer for you, mr. sales representative.

He did, however, tell me that details would be finalized for most stores on Tuesday. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we get more information then.
