Apple plans to overhaul its retail operations with iPad 2s running new Retail Me software, according to “AppleInsider” (http://www.appleinsider.com).
Apple stores have reportedly been receiving stockpiles of iPad 2 units with magnetic Smart Covers. Quoting “people familiar with Apple’s retail operations,” “AppleInsider” says that all stores across the U.S. have been stocked with dozens of iPads that are being prepared for use by employees. Training and utilization of the hardware could begin as soon as this weekend, the article adds.
“It’s also possible that the iPads could be used in addition to the current iPod touch EasyPay terminals, perhaps utilizing the larger screen of an iPad for showcasing product features to customers,” “AppleInsider” says.
