Am a little surprised to know that the iPod line and the Asus EEE PC lines are coming out at Toys ‘R Us. Is it all coming down to them being toys? Nah, it’s just Asus and Apple giving a nod to higher sales. Most kids in the US have written “santa” a list. And 9 out of 10 would list down iPod or EEE PC.
These products are small enough for small hands to handle so why not place it where small people (children) shop. Genius.
The iPods and related accessories will be merchandised within specially designed “iPod boutique” wall displays. The assortment includes the iPod Shuffle in silver, blue and pink, the iPod Nano in a selection of recently introduced colors, and the iPod Touch. Accessories include products from iHome, iTunes gift cards, and a selection of carrying cases and car adapters. -from Twice
These tech sales start Nov 16 with Apple having a mini kiosk for their wares while Asus to have demo units for kids to try. I’m guessing the Asus will hit it big as kids in the US are praying, REALLY, for laptops for school. Fortunate kids you…
