Let it not be said that Dell will let anything get in the way of boosting its sales, including selling Apple-made products. News.com is reporting that Dell will begin selling Appleis #1 selling MP3 player, the iPod.
In what could be a huge boost to Appleis bottom line, the worldis largest PC maker, and Appleis arch-rival in the education market, is currently selling the iPod through its phone ordering center, something TMO has confirmed. News.com says that the company will be adding the iPod to its online ordering system, as well. From the News.com report:
"Yep, Dell is reselling iPods," Apple said in a statement provided to CNET News.com. "We are delighted to offer our 5GB, 10GB and 20GB iPods for Windows through Dellis direct retail channel. iPod has been a big success to date, and we would like to make it even bigger."
It should be noted that Dellis online phone center told TMO that only the 10 GB and 20 GB were available, though there was some difficulty in pulling up information on the new product. Also, as makes sense, only the Windows version will be offered. This marks the first time that Apple has allowed only the Windows version of the iPod to be offered from a retailer.
