I know for a fact that RIM has been showing partners and large customers what they have in store for them with the BlackBerry PlayBook. Now we have learned from one of our readers that RIM is throwing BlackBerry PlayBook “AMP IT UP” training series in a ton of cities in the US and Canada to train sales associates and enterprise customers how to “Amp up sales with this exciting new product from BlackBerry.” It is really nice to see that RIM is making an extra effort to teach sales reps and customers why they would want to promote a BlackBerry PlayBook. An interesting kind of advertising.
I am not sure exactly what sales reps and enterprise customers RIM is targeting with this promotion but this is the text of the email they are sending out:
