RadioShack becomes authorized iPod reseller

RadioShack today announced that it has become an authorized Apple reseller and now offers all iPod models in its more than 5,000 stores across the U.S. The consumer electronics retailer, which had previously sold HP-branded iPods, will also continue to offer a large range of iPod accessories.

“iPod owners already know RadioShack as the place to go for add-on accessories to enhance their overall experience and enjoyment of these great digital devices while at home, work or on the run,” said Jim Hamilton, RadioShack’s senior vice president, chief merchandising officer. “Now, this new robust assortment allows us to be a complete turn-key destination for iPod players and accessories alike.”

What? I’ve been in RadioShack plenty of times, and not only is their iPod stuff nearly impossible to find, let alone see what it is once you do (way behind the counter, often covered with announcements), but it’s also the same stuff other stores sell for $5 less.

Also do I really need another nerdy tech person telling me something I already know. I went into a RadioShack to look at Sirius radio recievers and the dip was practically making up info to tell me about it. Had I not done the prior research I would have believed him. Lastly EVERYWHERE else carries iPod gear whats the point RadioShack?

With such a widespread retailer like Radio Shack signed up, who needs the big volume discounters like Wal*Mart or Costco, like HP had been supplying? Just the sheer number of RS stores alone will make up for any potential loss of exposure by not feeding the variety store megaboxes. Smart move, IMO, for both sides.

Investors seem to be happy with Apple stock this morning after the announcement.
