Apple to sell iPod touch POS systems?

Apple is considering taking its new internally-developed iPod touch point-of-sale (POS) system to market, according to a new report. Citing unnamed sources, ifoAppleStore reports that Apple has seen a high volume of inquiries about the system since rolling it out in its own retail stores, but has until this point said the system was proprietary and not for sale. The system is comprised of a standard iPod touch that is housed in a custom shell with an integrated barcode scanner and credit card reader, which is linked to software that streamlines the checkout process. The report states that Apple retail executives have asked the retail store business specialists to collect contact information from anyone who inquires about the new POS system, possibly to create a database of potential customers should Apple decide to sell the system commercially.
