Minneapolis-based Target Corp. is teaming up with CNET, a popular website for consumer electronics and tech news, to offer product reviews alongside digital cameras, tablets and other gadgets this holiday season, according to a company news release.

Roughly two-dozen electronic devices in Target stores will feature CNET reviews as well as more than 300 products on Target's website, Huffington Post reports.

The goal of the partnership is to help undecided shoppers make purchase decisions, but Reuters reports it could also help prevent "showrooming," when people check out a product in a store and then buy it online for a cheaper price.
