One AT&T store uses the wrong display for the Samsung Focus S

One AT&T store uses the wrong display for the Samsung Focus S
Call it a case of mistaken identity or something else, but it appears as though one AT&T store in Florida is having difficulty in figuring out what the Samsung Focus S looks like. Specifically, it seems as though they’re using the older Samsung Focus as part of the display for the Samsung Focus S.

As much as they share the same name, and also very similar designs, customers who are very meticulous and knowledgeable about their phone stuff would easily discern the difference between the two – yet, this AT&T store is still figuring it all out. Naturally, this isn’t a random occurrence, seeing that these kinds of things happen all the time in the retail world.

Nevertheless, there’s probably some sort of reasoning behind it, like maybe they simply did not have a demo unit available and blatantly went ahead in putting up the older Samsung Focus instead to show off the newer phone.

Meanwhile, another AT&T store appears to be suffering the same issue as they’ve used a dummy unit of the Samsung Focus on a display case for the Focus Flash. Oh well, at least they have the correct brand on display as opposed to something totally not Samsung.

Why is this a news article? Slow news day? Some of the stories on here just start looking like tabloid gossip columns.

Idk why this is news. But I know one thing, the focus and focus s designs aren't that similar. Where the first focus was really just a galaxy 1 with a slightly different case, the focus s was nearly identical to my galaxy s II when I compared them. The only difference being the camera on the focus s and it's a little thicker.

what rock did you crawl out from? Windows is picking up speed. You may want a one horse race but for me the more OS's that make it the better. Declare loyalty to no corporation because they will bend you over a barrel to take your last dollar!

Of course there's also the possibility they haven't received their demo unit yet, but still have to have something on display. But why would anyone consider that a viable option? Oh yea, that whole common sense thing is no longer common. -_-

I agree 100%. If they didn't have the demo unit yet, COMMON SENSE would dictate to keep the previous model up. It's better than not having anything. The S model is more akin to the original Focus than an empty stand. And who knows... maybe a customer stuck them back on the wrong pads. They're not always tethered.
