Harrisburg, Pa. -  D&H Distributing it is increasing its
investment in its consumer electronics customers by adding new online
navigation tools dedicated to the consumer market, in addition to ongoing
services such as enhanced rewards through its Incentives Rewards Program,

consumer electronics dealers, retailers and e-tailers can click directly on a
"Consumer Marketplace" icon, which leads them to a D&H site dedicated to
the CE space.

mobile products, home-office solutions, home healthcare devices, and a
specialized audio products section, D&H said. 

Manufacturers featured in the Marketplace include Microsoft,
Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Pinnacle, Innodigital (makers of the Android-based
WebTube TV tuner), Pogoplug (personal cloud device), Sony Ericsson Android
smartphones, Logitech, Sennheiser, and Archos and Coby tablets.

The D&H Consumer Marketplace spotlights the latest
hot products and promotions from categories ranging from computer accessories
to appliances; plus access to the D&H calendar with materials and events
from various D&H partners; key D&H press releases; and featured product
listings.
