Submission + - Michigan Police Search Phones During Traffic Stops (thenewspaper.com)

itwbennett writes: "Gamestop has been on a roll lately, purchasing both Impulse and Spawn Labs in the past week. Now it's ready to go after those casual gaming dollars, but first it needs to put a gaming tablet in your hands. Gamestop President Tony Bartel told CNBC that his chain is going to start selling tablets later this year:

If we can work with our partners and the OEMs and they come up with a great tablet that is enabled with a great gaming experience and coupled with a bluetooth controller, then there's no need to go out and develop our own. But if we can't find one that's great for gaming, then we will create our own.
