RadioShack retools wireless displays to compete with Best Buy

In a case of retail Spy vs. Spy, RadioShack said it planned to change its wireless and GPS displays in 4,000 stores so that customers can compare and contrast the differences between mobile devices side-by-side, a move that tracks closely with the policy of Best Buy, one its main competitors.

The new displays will allow for more interactivity and they will house entire product categories, which Best Buy has done for mobile phones. Best Buy has long sold many U.S. carrier's phones in its retail stories, and earlier this month partnered with flat-rate carrier MetroPCS to sell its handset and services in 200 of its stores.
