Rep training on Google Nexus S 4G to begin April 18th with consumer launch set for April 24th?
A photograph of what appears to be a publication for phone reps, shows an ad or notice from Samsung Mobile that the manufacturer will be launching the Google Nexus S 4G on Sprint April 18th for training purposes. The notice tells reps that if they take the training, pass the quiz on the first attempt and sell at least one Nexus S 4G, they will earn an extra $10.

According to a source for Android Central, the consumer launch of the handset is due one or two weeks after the April 18th training release with April 24th a very possible date. The WiMAX enabled version of the Google Nexus S has basically the same specs as the Nexus S with the added ability to connect to Sprint's 4G pipeline. That means it offers a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and a front (.3MP) and rear facing (5MP) camera. Both models will have NFC support and of course, come with Android 2.3 right out of the box.

The Google Nexus S 4G is expected to be priced at $199.99 by Sprint, with a signed 2-year contract. If you're interested in using the phone's ability as a Mobile Hotspot, it will cost you an additional $29.99 to be able to hook up as many as 6 Wi-Fi enabled devices to Wi-Fi

With the Google Nexus S 4G expected to launch April 18th for rep training, the consumer rollout could come around April 24th

The good thing about the Nexus line is that they are known for, or at least supposed to, get the latest updates first. Soo wish that this phone were to come out sooner than it is supposed to.

Seems a little suspicious to me. No carrier allows there reps to get "spiffed" in any way.....back in the day, sure. But carrier's legal departments have cracked down on allowing manufacturer's to pay reps for sales, training etc. Reps are supposed to sell the phone on the "merits" of the phone....not because the manufacturer is incenting them to do so.

Verizon has run contests that involve selling phones. SOme less specific than other like sell X amount of blackberries and get a 100 prize type of thing. I know that when the chocolate came out that they had a thing where if you sell like 15 of them you got a free one.

You'll see BB contests because the carriers revolve the contest around the BB service (which so happens to be connected to the BB device....I know)....it's a "loophole". The chocolate was a few years back......alot harder now a days. I used to be able to go to a nokia & motorola website back in the mid-90s and register all my respective ESNs sold and would receive a check for $5 for each phone sold evey quarter...those days are long gone.

Acutally, the Sprint Rewards Me Program is where this image is from. They run promo's for the reps every month.

this a screen shot from sprint dealer rewards. a program where sprint pay's indirect dealers extra bonus' for selling different products. The money is added to a visa debit card, and is taxed at the end of the year. Perfectly legit.

You are obviously not "intheknow"

it's calls SprintRewardsMe. You can even search for it on google and find the login. This program has been around for YEARS, and reps can take certification training quizes on future products and even report their sales to get additional spiffs from the manufacturers in conjunction with Sprint. All spiffs are put on a Sprint Rewardsme prepaid visa debit card.

...nice try tho with the word incenting. Even spell check is like, "wtf"

Read my post before you type: "Indirect Yes....corporate owned retail: no".

Sprintrewardsme.com is an agent program....NOT a Sprint Direct Store program....read the fine print on the site. Any program that is set up for corporate owned retail or corporate enterprise reps MUST have a reward value less than 25 bucks (or some predetermined value in the single digits) LG has a nice direct program set up at VZW where you can add up your rewards over time to get LG consumer electronics and other prizes. It's based on taking trainings and not selling devices.

No wonder you work for an agent

sanyo kyocera had a large sales contest where they gave out a flat screen home entertainment system to the top rep per region. where do you get that there are no spiff? There are sales contests all the time.

This is just a post from sprint rewardsme not from actual sprint database...not official training for advocates/techs as we haven't been given a date yet.
