GoSolarUSA announced today that New York City electronics superstore J&R plans to carry the Peel 520 accessory for Apple’s iPod Touch.
Founded in 1971, J&R began as a tiny music retailer occupying 500 square feet across from New York’s City Hall and has evolved into a block-long electronics megastore famed for its massive selection. According to GoSolarUSA, a buyer for J&R has confirmed in writing their intent to carry the Peel 520. As far as we can tell this stops short of them actually putting in a purchase order, but its still a good sign for them. J&R is the first major electronics retailer to openly confirm their intent, but according to GoSolarUSA many other major retailers have inquired about the product.
