Some Best Buy In-store stock info (no white models, limited numbers)
I used to work in a local best buy many moons ago, and I'm still friends with people who work there. Best Buy uses an internal system called RSS to manager inventory and stock. They can look up how many of each units each store received. The store I live nearest is one of the top 5 Best Buys in the country in terms of revenue. However, for AT&T, they only got:
- A few (<10) black units in the main store. Looking at inventory across the state, most stores received similar quantities. We saw no store receive more than that.
- Best Buy mobiles, in general, got 5 or less units of the black.
- No white units received at any location in the state.
My buddy is holding me a black unit for tomorrow 10am when they open, since they cannot under any circumstances have sold today. It wouldn't allow you to be checked out. He tried to scan it
Anyways, I recommend that if you don't have a preorder, live near a busy Best Buy, and want the black AT&T model, go early tomorrow or you might be out of luck.
