With the iPhone 3G launch so close we can almost taste it, Apple’s retail stores are putting on their Sunday best and bringing out the iPhone 3G advertising-guns. Similar to what we saw last year, Apple stores are erecting larger-than-life iPhone 3G displays to give customers a chance to explore the iPhone 3G’s feature-set. And, a leaked memo indicates that Apple stores will be taking shipments of iPhone 3G demo units starting July 8.
Beginning July 8th you will receive the new iPhone 3G demo devices at your store to enhance your sales process. These devices will be used the same as your 2G demo devices in your sales process but now you can demonstrate the additional capabilities of the iPhone 3G including the App Store
Employees are apparently instructed to download apps from the AppStore on July 11, and should activate their iPhone 3G demonstration models on July 10 – which means eager-beavers won’t likely be getting a preview of a real, live iPhone 3G or the AppStore until launch-day.
Still, if you hound an Apple store employee long enough, they might just let you touch it…
