Nordstrom recently rolled out 6,000 iPod Touches at 116 of its stores in an effort to reduce check-out wait times. The US department store chain already uses Apple iPads in its Personal Styling Department. The new iPod Touches will be able to read credit cards and bar-codes. Consumers with credit cards will be able to walk up to a store representative, purchase an item on the spot, and receive an automatically e-mailed receipt. Retail associates will also be able to obtain inventory information by scanning item bar codes. The retailer plans on distributing equipped iPods to all of its stores, as well as expanding the capabilities of these devices.
