Walmart to focus on connected devices

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2363747,00.asp

I guess Walmart will be shifting some emphasis from lower margin stuff to higher margin stuff, for instance trying to get rid of the landline phones, and trying to capture more of the consumer electronics side of things. Perhaps they will be able to take some of the business from the likes of Best Buy.

I’m not sure about the relative levels of sophistication in the staff for the two stores. I guess things will happen, and the levels of sophistication will rise, or else they won’t.
