Next month, Loweâ€™s will introduce its MyLowes online tool that customers will be able to use to store ownerâ€™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 shoppersâ€™ questions and ring up purchases.
Each Lowe’s store will be equipped with about 25 iPhones. Home Depot dispatched Motorola smartphones last year.
