Burberry Has Its Finger On The Pulse.... And One On The iPad 10/9/10

Burberry is embracing online shopping, expanding an iPad-based online shopping program in order to encourage store visits. By setting up iPad’s at 25 outlets worldwide, shoppers will be able to browse and order from the spring-summer 2011 collection with the swish of an index finger. It has been revealed that the service will be available for use during the live broadcast of Burberry’s show during London Fashion Week on September 21. Items purchased during the show will be delivered in seven weeks- three months before the items appear in stores. We think this is a genius strategy, built around the rush of excitement for new products, while simultaneously integrating new media and… Apple products (they had us at hello)… Impulse buyers beware!
