Confirming reports from earlier this week, Apple is moving forward with plans to put iPads to work in their retail stores, not just display models, but as tools to sell their products from others.
Apple store in Sunday:
In Australia and other countries where it is Sunday, Apple stores have opened with a new configuration that makes use of iPads as information tools to customers around the store, taking the place of information signals on paper, with The company's products.
As Mac Prices Australia blog has broken a local store and picked up by Macstories, the iPads locked display information about nearby products, pricing and configurations for customers to compare and customize the models. There is also the option page to a retail employee to come to assist.
The new configuration gives Apple some leeway in terms of keeping information up to date, no matter what product is about. It also has the potential for wineries with less staff on the ground, as an employee may be called to answer questions whenever alert customers to the company through the application running in the iPads.
Apple plans to give its stores a renewed focus on digital IPAD were discovered earlier this week with several reports. Boy Genius Report, published an article this week said that Apple Store employees could not take time off during the weekend, and were forced to attend a training session on Sunday. After that, Apple Insider caught photos of a pile of iPads delivered to an Apple store for use on the sales floor. 9to5mac on Friday briefly posted screenshots of an application that would be used by employees to carry out operations, although the photos were removed shortly thereafter at the request of Apple.
