Lowe’s Equip Workers With 42000 iPhones

Chris Burritt, Bloomberg:

Next month, Lowe’s will introduce its MyLowes online tool that customers will be able to use to store owner’s manuals, warranties and paint formulas, Chief Information Officer Mike Brown said in an interview. The Mooresville, North Carolina- based company is arming workers with 42,000 iPhone 4s to answer shoppers’ questions and ring up purchases.

Each Lowe’s store will be equipped with about 25 iPhones. Home Depot dispatched Motorola smartphones last year.
