The success of BB10 is perhaps 50 percent contingent on the success of this type of training (across all retailers, not just Rogers), ESPECIALLY with the new gesture interface!
I remember going into Best Buy near the Eaton center in Toronto and asking the sales guy if they had any PlayBooks on sale (this was right around when the first price drops started) and he literally said:
"Trust me. Don't get the PlayBook, it's total sh1t".
I wasn't asking for his opinion on it, or asking him to help me compare different tablets. I was clear that I had already made up my mind to purchase a PlayBook.
With guys like that, RIM wouldn't be able to sell money at half price, let alone BB10. :/

As a marketing professional, I respect that this time the marketing messaging is very very clear to whom the sales person should be targetting... that said, if you ask most people "are you a go getter who wants a full life and successful career and relationships?" they'd say "uhhhh..... um...... yeah?" so, qualifying this type of person is going to be... challenging... but I appreciate that they're not calling BB10 "all things to everyone"... if they had narrowed the target audience for the PlayBook to those go-getter types (i.e. "not a toy for wasting time") AND targetted BB handheld owners, criticism would have been reduced and its impression would be much better. After all, the PlayBook IS a great device for BB users.

just because the guys over at rogers happened to get their pre-order website uploaded and live before the other carriers doesn't necessarily dictate RIM's release schedule for their devices. Rogers, Bell, and Telus aren't all talking to eachother behind the scenes saying... "ok rogers u guys release your pre-order website first, then telus, u guys do it second.... and we'll mess with people"... heck it could be something as simple as the guy who was supposed to do the pre-order website for bell got sick and missed a few days of work... i seriously dont see how launching pre-order websites within days of eachother is going to be any sort of realistic force to tell RIM on when they should be releasing their devices with which carrier.
this also applies to the training ... just because rogers people are getting trained and it was leaked, doesnt mean the bell guys or the telus guys arent, or one carrier will get the device sooner or later than another. It would only make business sense for rim to release their devices on all carriers either on the same day or within days of eachother. It really does come down to supply chains at that time and how organised the carriers are.
