As Expected BestBuy and Staples To Start Carrying Microsoft Surface RT Tablets

News about Microsofts upcoming plans to increase availability of the Surface RT table broke yesterday, but there was no hard date or retailer listings given, luckily that changed quickly. We now know that both BestBuy (as we expected) and Staples will be carrying the Surface RT tablets, which might help with the sluggish sales of Microsofts first tablet.

Well would you look at that, Microsoft apparently has decided to listen to everyone in the blogosphere and increase the availability of the Surface RT in retail locations outside of the 30 (ish) Microsoft Retail stores.

BestBuy Giving Away HTC Smartphone with the purchase of Modern Warfare 3

BestBuy Giving Away HTC Smartphone with the purchase of Modern Warfare 3

 

Well this is an interesting approach to increasing sales. BestBuy is giving away a new HTC phone with the purchase of Modern Warfare 3. Purchasers can chose from the Evo 4G for Sprint, the Incredible 2 for Verizon Wireless, or the Inspire 4G for AT&T. The only catch is that you have to sign up for a new 2 year contract, and with that you would think that you’d be able to pick your HTC smartphone but apparently BestBuy doesn’t think so.

This is an interesting strategy by BestBuy considering that the projected sales for MW3 are through the roof so you don’t need to incentivize purchasing it. BestBuy is hoping to leverage the high volume of sales of the game to getting people to be aware of the large mobile offering and getting users to sign up for contracts.

BestBuy has been in the smartphone business for almost 5 years and most shoppers are still unaware that you can purchase a phone for any network through them. Most consumers (roughly 70%) still go to carrier stores to purchase their cellphones. Maybe with the rampant sales of MW3 and this promotion BestBuy can make some inroads into new markets with cellphone sales. I personally think that most people who are purchasing MW3 from BestBuy are already well aware that BestBuy sells cellphones… Unless of course it’s a 12 year olds parent buying them a game that’s rated “M” for Mature for their child just to keep them quiet, in which case their awareness of BestBuy’s offerings are the least of concerns.

PSA: Reminder Bullestorm On Sale Today 2/22!

Friendly reminder to all of you out there that Bullestorm is on sale today! For everyone who doesn’t know Bullestorm is a new take on the FPS genre coming from the minds who brought us all the Gears of War franchise. The demo for the game has been available on Xbox 360 and PS3 for a few weeks and I’ve played it and I have to say I’m a bit hooked on the game. The kill combos make you not only want to get through the game, but get through it with style!

Also if you pick up the game you will get access to the Gears of War 3 Beta when it becomes available (similar to what was done with Halo: ODST and the Halo Reach Beta).

Let us know when you pick it up and what your Gamertag is on Xbox so we can play !

Motorola XOOM Pre-Order Available at BestBuy!

Motorola XOOM Pre-Order Now Available at BestBuy Today

Starting today excited Android fans can pre-order the highly anticipated Motorola XOOM Honeycomb tablet, for delivery on February 24th. There were a lot of questions regarding this killer device that have been answered recently but the time has finally arrived and people can start lining up to purchase it. Some people have been thrown off by it’s price point, which at $800 for the 3G (upgradeable to 4G) has turned away potential buyers knowing that they can buy an iPad for less. There is also a $600 WiFi version in the works but availability for that devices has yet to be announced.

So get going down to BestBuy and lock in your order of the Motorola XOOM!

Motorola XOOM Pre-Order at BestBuy Moved to 2/20/11!

According to reports, and information provided to Droid-Life.com BestBuy has pushed back it’s pre-order date for the Motorola XOOM tablet. The date was originally speculated to be 2/17 but has since been pushed back to 2/20. Does this push back have anything to do with a software issue from Google? Does this have anything to do with the price confirmation from Sanjay Jha? It’s hard to say if it has any real impact at all considering the release date for the product has always been presumed to be 2/24 so in all reality it may have no effect on all of us who are thinking about jumping on board.

Are you thinking about picking up the XOOM Tablet on release day? Which version are you thinking about getting? the $799 3G/4G version or the $600 WiFi only version?
