Apple Watch to be sold at Best Buy

The Wall Street Journal:

One month after Apple Inc. started selling Apple Watch at its own stores, the company said it will bring the device to Best Buy stores in August.

Apple said its smartwatch will be available at more than 100 Best Buy stores in the U.S., expanding to over 300 outlets before the holiday shopping season. Best Buy will be the first major U.S. retailer beside Apple to sell the device.

This is a sign Apple wants to get the Watch in front of even more customers and that they have caught up on demand. It’s also in preparation for the upcoming holiday season when Apple expects the Watch to be a huge seller for Christmas.

    I had to go to an Apple Store to get my Douchebangle, which meant I had to pay Apple prices, having said that, I got Apple-quality service by Apple Store employees, so in hindsight, not a bad deal.

    Walked into the store, and every counter and table in the place was thick with people, mostly fanboy-type nerds (and they were loud), except for the table with the Apple Watches, nobody there, it was quite odd. I would have thought that that particular display would have been the one I would have had trouble getting to.
