Are you planning to buy an iPad or an equivalent this holiday season? Then you need to head to a Best Buy near you.
In an interview on Friday Best Buy’s mobile lead Shawn Score said the store would “make tablets a focus” for the holiday this year. The Best Buy’s chain of outlets is hoping to focus on tablets and will put more attention on the iPad and its yet-to-ship competitors.
Alternatives to Apple would be important, Score told Forbes, as those who use Android or Blackberry phones might want tablets based on the same platform.
“Customers need to have choice on operating systems,” he explained.
With the popularity of the iPad, and its rival tablets increasing acutely. Especially since Apple said it had sold 3.27 million of the slates in just its first three months on sale, most of them are planning to buy an iPad this holiday season.
With so many tablets like BlackPad tablet, Galaxy Tab, Cruz Reader etc hitting the market soon, I feel it’s good that Best Buy has planned to make tablets their key focus this holiday season, Let us know what you feel.
