Apple is planning to roll out at least two more iPod touch applications to be used in its company-owned retail stores, according to an AppleInsider report. In addition to the previously revealed point-of sale application, Apple will reportedly be providing an application that allows employees to replace iPhones and iPods directly on the store floor, removing the need for a Genius Bar visit. A separate application is said to be designed for the stores’ stock rooms, where it will help facilitate necessary tasks performed in all of Apple’s retail stores. According to the report, the new apps will arrive simultaneously, alongside the new iPod touch-based POS system.

Finally saw one of the Retail touches at the new Broadway Apple Store. It looks so much smaller and sleeker than the nasty, clunky old WinMob handheld they used to use. And much better than photos I’d seen, too! It even has a credit card swipe slot.

I could really see Apple selling a version, with 3G capabilities, to the likes of FedEx or UPS, etc.. Another stealth entry into the enterprise market, perhaps?
