Best Buy Co. Inc. plans to add a dozen vending kiosks inside major airports across the country as part of a new pilot program called "Best Buy Express," company executives said. The nation's largest consumer electronics retailer is partnering with ZoomSystems, a San Francisco-based vending machine company, for the project that will install the small automated stores at eight airports.

The machines will stock cell phone and computer accessories, along with digital cameras, portable data storage devices, headphones, travel adapters, electronic chargers and other gadgets.

The self-serve kiosks will be installed by Sept. 1 in airports in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and San Francisco.
