Best Buy Considers Tablets for Salespeople
Sorry Best Buy salespeople, your employer isn’t planning to give each of you an iPad.
But the retailing giant says it is studying a variety of devices for its employees to use on the job, including the Galaxy Tab from Samsung, the original iPad and Motorola Mobility’s Xoom. The devices are being tested as part of Best Buy’s ”Connected Store” pilot program, which is available in limited stores and is geared at getting customers hands-on experience with gadgets, similar to the Apple Store.
“While we plan in the future to supply each store a limited number of handheld devices to use as sales tools when assisting the consumer, we have not many any final decision at this time,” a Best Buy representative said.
