Lowes to Equip Employees With 42,000 iPhone 4s

Lowes is planning to equip its employees with 42,000 iPhone 4s which will be used to answer shoppers' questions and ring up purchases, reports Bloomberg.

The phones are part of a technology push that includes the introduction of MyLowes, an online tool that customers will use to store owner's manuals, warranties and paint formulas, and more. The retailer is also replacing 72,000 computer screens with flat panels in more than 1,700 stores, adding Wi-Fi for shoppers, listing additional items for sale online, and promoting a recently released app for iOS.

iPhones replace scanner guns based on technology dating back to the early 1990s. Employees who previously jotted down item numbers and logged into computer terminals can now check product information, view how-to plumbing videos and connect to lowes.com as they help shoppers, said CIO Mike Brown.

Each store is getting about 25 devices that eventually will be enabled for processing credit and debit card purchases.

What's so ignorant about it? Matter of fact why dont u explain why apple or ATT haven't fixed the signal issue? Wouldn't that be ignorant on they're behalf? Cmon seriously I think u just learned the word ignorant and u just wanted to try it out. Go beat off in a shoe Hamster di-k!

Its not that it doesn't have signal, its that they don't need a carrier for what they are using the iPhone for. Which brings up the question, why not just use iPod 4? It would be a hell of a lot cheaper then an iPhone.

Your last post is evidence of your ignorance and I will provide you more. First, clearly because of how Lowes is going to have their employees use the phone, a carrier IS NOT necessary, which is why it says no service. Next, my iPhone 4 doesn't suffer any signal issues at all and I have AT&T as my carrier and I use my phone without a case. Lastly, now that you and I both have proven your ignorance, you can save your pathetic excuse for an insult for yourself.
