Best Buy getting ready for Windows 8

When I did see a display, it only was partially stocked with a couple of HP devices that actually had Windows 8 running. Interestingly, most of the staff I spoke to were unable to didn’t seem to know anything about the Operating System at all. They all kept talking about the 26th of October. I felt like shaking them and screaming “That’s in 2 weeks!!”.   It seems like the Windows 8 sales training videos haven’t made it to these parts yet.  🙂 The other thing to be concerned about in these stores is the wi-fi connections that are shared across the store. I played around with the HP all In One on the the right in the picture above and when I went to the Windows Store, it took FOREVER to come up. Now of course I know that’s because of the weak wi-fi but I can tell you that I saw a couple of brand new consumers wondering “why it’s so slow”. That’s something that needs to be fixed by Microsoft/Best Buy otherwise consumers will get the wrong impression while checking the devices out for the first time. The 26th is coming soon and from what I saw, there’s a WHOLE LOT OF WORK left for retailers to do. I’ll keep you updated…]]>
