My coworker just told me that his local Best Buy had dummy phones of the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8x being displayed....he also mentioned that the employees doesn't know exact release date but the system doesn't show weather they have it in stock or not
So if anybody is interested, head over to your local Best Buy to feel the difference between the L920 and the 8x
I'm still getting the L920 just for the Nokia Drive and the camera
please post pictures or comments if you can verify it's at your local stores..I'll check my local store when I leave work today
Though, a benefit to the dummy phones is that sometimes when you go into a Best Buy with your precocious 2 year old who loves to play with PHONES they may give you one of the old ones that aren't on display anymore.
Its how we ended up with some god awful slider dummy phone a couple months back when we upgraded my wife's phone.
Those dummy phones, though stupid, do make good kid's toys.
The fact that they put dummy units out just eats me up. I remember when Best Buy was all about actually using the products before you buy them. If someone doesn't know about the 920 or Windows Phone 8 there is NO WAY they buy the Lumia without using the OS/taking photos.
I am totally photographing an L920 dummy with 20 pennies taped to it and a horrified look on my face.
But seriously, why do they still have those stupid dummy phones?!? Haven't they figured out that most people want to pick up, feel and use a real phone?
The AT&T kiosk at my local walmart had a Titan 2 on display. It was sync with some guys account and it was full of tramps as contacts. Naked pictures (in poses that will make Ron Jeremy flinch) all over the People's hub. A total disaster.
