As Apple’s iOS devices continue to rise in popularity, numerous sources speaking to 9to5Mac have indicated that GameStop may soon begin selling iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPod Touch.
If true, the availability of iOS devices at GameStop retail locations is a strong testament to the significant dent that iOS devices are making in the gaming community. The announcement was supposedly made to dealers at an annual trade show in Las Vegas last week.
GameStop has also begun acception iOS device trade-ins for in-store credit that can be used to purchase anything offered by GameStop. It sounds to me as though GameStop may be preparing for the release of the iPhone 5, and perhaps a new iPod Touch.
