Home Depot spends on handheld technology

From a recent Retail Wire comment about Home Depot, which is equipping its sales associates with handheld devices:

Apple stores have been using handheld technology for years, and the surprise is that other retailers (from DIY to discounters) have been so slow to react. This is a great technology for tracking inventory and especially for getting customers out the door more quickly (better than, say, self-checkout). It’s easy to see other, sales-driving uses for handheld technology — such as issuing “instant coupons” to customers using a database that can pull up their purchase preferences from their phone numbers. $60 million seems like a modest investment in this kind of technology.
