Are retailers missing tablet opportunities?

Mystery shopper is underwhelmed in Milton Keynes by lack of demo models
Publish date:

This month PCR's mystery shopper went to Milton Keynes, seeking tablets for apps and web-surfing, only to find not all stores had them available to try.

John Lewis didn't have working models available to try, while Maplin had them hidden away in a glass cabinet?

Furthermore, of all the stores visited, only Staples tried to encourage an add-on sale - which, when there are keyboards, cases and more available to stock - is a bit of a missed opportunity for increased revenue.

Overall though, there were plenty of tablets on the market to choose from, and the Asus Transformer in particular made a good impression.
