According to CompUSA director of merchandising Brian Woods, VoIP just may be the hottest item on the 289-Superstore chain's shelves this coming Holiday Season.
"The adoption rate has been very, very quick over the last several months," Woods told metro Dallas technology business leaders at a luncheon late last week.
Woods credited "extremely cheap" VoIP subscription prices by service providers such as Vonage for the growth spurt.
Currently, CompUSA is selling 3,500 VoIP kits a month, but Woods expects that pace to hit 18,000 to 25,000 a month in November and December.
"We've seen literally 500 percent, 700 percent increases over the last 90 days, and through the holidays, we expect voice over IP to probably be the hottest product within our building," he said.
