Best Buy offering to "future proof" your tech gadgets

If you purchase your iPhones or iPads from Best Buy, you may be interested in checking out their new Buy Back program. In a letter sent out to current Best Buy Reward Zone customers, they'll be announcing the new program during the Super Bowl this coming Sunday (third quarter to be exact).

It appears Best Buy will tell you exactly how much they'll give you for your gadget when you purchase it. When you are ready to trade in your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (or any other gadget for that matter), you'll get a Best Buy gift card instantly for the fixed buy back amount. It's a nice little gesture to loyal customers. Here is part of the e-mail sent to customers:

White iPhone shows up in order systems, available Feb 27?

The white iPhone 4 has shown up in Best Buy and Vodafone Germany's order processing systems with an availability date of February 27.

Of course these hints are always hit and miss as retailers sometimes create placeholder entries based on the same type of rumors you read right here on TiPb so take this with a white iPhone 4 sized grain of salt.

Best Buy CEO: iPad cannibalizing laptop sales by 50%

iPad may be cannibalizing laptop sales by as much as half according to Best Buy CEO, Brian Dunn:

Mr. Dunn also said internal estimates showed that the iPad had cannibalized sales from laptop PCs by as much as 50%

It will be interesting to see how much, if at all, they cannibalize iPod and MacBook purchases, and if they're in it for the long haul or the cannibalization stops when most of the people who want an iPad get one.

Apple bumpers arriving, Best Buy giving away free side film for iPhone 4

TiPb iPhone Forum user shaolinfinest let us know last night, and many others have since confirmed, that Best Buy was starting to give away InvisibleShielf protective side films for iPhone 4:

I'm not sure if this has been discussed but Best Buy is starting to receive Zagg kits called "iPhone 4fix" or something like that. Basically Zagg sent us a bunch of invisishield sides to put on customers iPhone 4's and they are free. The only disclaimer on the kit is that it says shield and install is free but install is up to the associate if they want to put it on or not. Before going in, call your local Best Buy if you are like me and don't want to put a case on it. I installed the sides today and it was easy to put on and feels ok so far.

No pre-orders outside Apple Store?

TiPb among others are getting word that, contrary to previous reports, non-Apple Store retail locations like Best Buy and Radio Shack may not be taking pre-orders starting tomorrow.

Look, these things are usually chaos personified, with execs jostling back and forth with Apple, upper and middle management never properly communicating with employees in the stores and on the floor, and everyone and their CSR hearing conflicting stories that change by the minute.
