Bell has started hiring “Promotional Representatives” to help increase the Bell brand within various retail outlets (Best-Buy, Wal-Mart, and Future Shop). This is nothing new, especially as we are heading into the busiest shopping season coming up. But what is new is what they are offering up as an incentive for each new rep… a Palm Pre. We already know that the Palm Pre is “the most important launch in Bell’s history”
Pretty good deal. We understand that training for this position will begin in a few days and the end of the contract is in January. Perhaps that is when Bell’s exclusivity ends for the Pre and just around the time their new network is launched.
