Best Buy Plans Tablets For Holidays
Best Buy plans to "make tablets a focus" this holiday season, the company's wireless head told Forbes on Friday.
“Like e-readers over the last couple years, we think customers will think of Best Buy for tablets and expect us to have the right ones," Best Buy Mobile president Shawn Score told Forbes in the interview.
The category was essentially invented earlier this year by Apple, and while no major competitors have arrived on the market as of now, a wave of them- from such CE giants as Samsung, Toshiba, Research in Motion and more- are expected to arrive later this year and early in 2011. Score did not confirm which devices the retailer will or will not be carrying.
