The tablet segment has certainly gotten a whole lot more interesting ever since Apple released their iPad, and it seems that Best Buy wants a piece of this seemingly lucrative market segment by developing a tablet computer of its own. Yes, this massive electronics chain will be working on a tablet device, with a prototype already being available – at least that’s what Robert Stephens, chief technology officer and founder of Best Buy’s Geek Squad, mentioned earlier last week. No idea on how Best Buy will market their own tablet, considering the fact that they are the only major retailer selling the iPad in the US at the moment. Will this be the cause of a conflict of interest between Best Buy and Apple? Only time will tell, but more options for consumers might just make the tablet market end up like the current smartphone segment.
