Google and BestBuy are working together in plans to entice users to purchase cellphones from their store store rather than from other wireless retailers.
Google is developing applications that will be pre-installed on devices purchased at BestBuy. The first mobile application that Google will be releasing lets customers to search for products and see which locations have them in stock. Google is also working on Android-only apps, but word on exactly what those will be.
On the other end of this partnership, the exposure Google is going to get for Android devices in BestBuy stores will be well worth their efforts. It's almost unfair that all Google has to do to tap into the BestBuy selling machine is build a simple app for them.
Will these apps Google is making really help BestBuy sell more phones? Let's hear what you think.
