Sprint instructs reps not to sell Pre to "wrong customers"

Sprint "can't afford it"

 


Palm
Pre has stirred a lot of dust lately, with shots from Sprint’s back-offices roaming the net, but the latest update on this upcoming device has to do with Sprint’s instructions to its representatives.

Namely, the instruction guide says how the Pre should be sold to the “right customer” whereas on the bottom of the page it reads: “We can’t afford to sell the Pre to wrong customers”. We’re not sure about Sprint’s classification of right and wrong, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

While this “guide” is intended to perfect the salespersons’ skill in selling you the “right device for you”, albeit in a Q&A shape that’s in our opinion more suitable for children than for adults, it might suggest that quantities are limited and that this launch has to be executed perfectly.

More here, where you’ll also find a photo of the “guide”.
