Many former University of Tennessee athletes, who now host shows on TSR, were available to meet fans and sign autographs. Former UT and New York Jets quarterback, Erik Ainge, was even on hand to challenge fans in games of NCAA Football on Xbox 360. In addition to Ainge, Jayson Swain, Chris Treece, Gerald Riggs, Jr., and Steven Pearl all made appearances.
“We had a great time at Cellular Sales,” Ainge said. “The turnout was amazing, and everyone had fun playing video games and learning about all of the awesome products and services from Verizon that Cellular Sales offers.”
It was a fun event for all who participated, as those who came by were able to munch on some delicious food catered by Calhoun’s and pick up a free Tennessee Sports Radio t-shirt. And who doesn’t love a free t-shirt?
“Any time I can hang out, talk to, take pictures with and engage with my fans is time well-spent,” Ainge said. “Cellular Sales gets that. Their entire business model is completely built around taking care of and engaging their customers. This event was another example of how they do things differently, and they do it very well.”
We really enjoyed hosting the guys from Tennessee Sports Radio, and we were glad to be able to bring this kind of event to our customers. It was really fun to get to see people meeting their sports idols for the first time.
Apple iPad 2 is officially announced. The update includes a 1GHz dual-core A5 chip as well as two cameras. One camera will be in the rear of the device as well as, the highly anticipated, front facing camera. The updates will allow the iPad to run up to nine times faster than the original iPad. All these changes and Apple is still able to keep the battery life at 10 hours. Pricing is left unchanged at $499 for a 16GB WiFi-only iPad 2 and all the way up to $829 for a WiFi/3G capable device with 64GB of storage. Apple is going outside of its usual boundaries and including an HDMI port that will be capable of 1080p. However, you’ll need to purchase a $39 dongle entitled Apple Digital AV Adapter. The iPad 2’s resolution is unchanged from the iPad at 1024 x 768. For a closer look check out this hands on by Engadget.
Check out the video we put together, with the help of our friends at Cobblestone Entertainment, for The Main Event that happened in Knoxville, TN back on May 12. Mobile showrooms were delivered and sweat flowed as events teams from across the country set up their exhibits, tested all the parts, and shared tips and tricks for how to put on a successful mobile wireless sales event.
