Retailers Size Up the iPad
In the wake of Apple’s ballyhooed iPad introduction Wednesday, consumer technology retailers mulled the potential impact of the tablet computer on their consumers and their businesses. All the while, they worked their connections to find a way to sell the product.
The iPad makes it clearer than ever that “content is king.” Where does that leave the hardware sellers and the hardware makers?
George Manlove, president and CEO of Vann’s, has for years predicted that Apple would become the top electronics manufacturer in the world. The iPad “does not hurt that quest for the crown. It’s redefining the way we view and access content."
