    Best Buy will take down all small WM outlets

    Best buy is stocking almost all of the new PPC and Smartphones. They offer you access to phones that the majority of people didn't previously have.

    Look at so many threads who ask about online sites and if they are legit. also, most are buying the phone based on pictures, a brief synopsis of a member or a video layout.

    Now they can walk into a local Best Buy, physically hold and use the phone and buy it outright, and they don't have to worry about waiting for FedEx.

    They also have more capital to stock a larger quantity of goods, thus having the customer benefit.

    I take my opinion as I worked in this industry for around a year. I have purchased phones from best buy and I was morwe then satisfied.

    The rly sad thing is...I agree. So long as they bring down some of their prices. $755 for a Nokia N95 8GB when the N96 JUST dropped is ridiculous...for some of us, that's just too much knowing that we can get it for much cheaper.
    From the HTC Magician to the One X, I'm one of the HTC OG's.

    BestBuy will rarely carry the latest models which is usually what we want. Ofcourse there are exceptions like the iPhone or the Touch which they know will be in popular demand. I think in most cases we will end up going to online retailers again.

    they have the E71 @ as crazy good price, the Diamond isn't THAT expensive and their online store even carries the HTC Shift.

    Best Buy Mobile*

    and yes, we are going after marketshare full force, not only in your core Best Buys...but we have 33 Best Buy Mobile locations open already in Malls, i type this message from one of them right now. Look for a large number more to open next year as well...

    our partnership with Carphone Warehouse has made this possible and is fueling the success of Best Buy Mobile. this is only the beginning...

    We have some major online sellers here in NYC including MCO, CTI and EGadget Depot and it is so much easier and cheaper to walk into a Best Buy Mobile now.

    They have gotten so much better and they will continue to grow and srock better and better phones.
