GameStop plans on selling Apple iPhone and Android handsets
GameStop recently purchased Spring Mobile from AT&T, so the retailer certainly knows its way around a smartphone. Already the third largest and fastest growing AT&T retailer in the country, there are plans to expand the Spring Mobile name.
Three years ago, GameStop started selling digital and mobile devices, which led to over $1 billion in additional revenue last year. Reins wants to build on this by opening a few hundred stores that won't carry video games. Also in the cards for GameStop is a doubling of its Simply Mac locations from the current 23. Those stores sell and repair all Apple products.
Over the years, we've reported on GameStop's plans to sell a branded Android powered tablet (which apparently failed), plans to sell new and old iOS devices and the launch of its pre-paid GSM MVNO. If GameStop has its way, the next time you head over to buy the hottest new video game, you might add a new iPhone or Android handset to your purchase.
