Best Buy to test mobile-phone stores

Best Buy and Carphone Warehouse made good on their September announcement to launch stand-alone mobile-phone stores.

This could be the start of a great trend given the fact that the low usage of data services can be partly attributed to a lack of customer education at the distribution level.
