Best Buy wants to become big in the UK & EU
Carphone is already big in both
Both companies don't simply sell products, by the pallet full they 'Assist customers to buy from them'
There will always be people who want someone to explain to them about about the latest mobile, laptop or other wireless product, and both these companies have said they could go it alone but they think it will be better if they can do it together
Carphone in a matter of a few weeks has already built up an 8% market share of the UK laptop market, now they've joined forces with the worlds largest electronics retailer I'd be quite worried if I worked for curry's or pc world
Apparently you get the competition you deserve, DSG group now have BestBuy, and Carphone would over take BT and Virgin Media as the UK's largest broadband provider if they can get Tiscali to join TalkTalk and AOL as a Carphone company
2009 will be very interesting
