Optus… Pick Up Your Act With Windows Phone Labelling In Stores!

I was in the Brisbane CBD today doing some business and thought I’d pop in to check out some phone stores to see what they were doing regarding the Nokia Lumia range of phones which is supposed to be available from some carriers now! (Just as Sheeds from WP Down Under has the greater Melbourne region covered when it comes to retailer visits). I popped into the Optus store in the Queen Street Mall and found that the Nokia Lumia 800 & 710 were currently on display, not that any customers would know that though… Check out these pictures:

Lumia 800 - Appearing As The Motorola Defy

The Nokia Lumia 800 Now Appearing AS: The Motorola Defy

Nokia Lumia 710 Appearing As LG Optimus 3D

The Nokia Lumia 710 Now Appearing AS: The LG Optimus 3D

Now, I’m pretty sure the explaination is that Optus simply replaced the Motorola Defy and LG Optimus 3D with the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 respecitvely and just haven’t replaced the labels yet, but still, this reflects poorly on Optus and they have a history of incorrectly labelling Windows Phone handsets.

OPTUS, SORT IT OUT, WINDOWS PHONE DESERVES BETTER! I bet you wouldn’t let this happen to the iPhone, would you…
