Report: Best Buy to have mini-Samsung stores open in time for Samsung Galaxy S4 launch
According to a report, Best Buy is planning on removing two aisles from the mobile department of its high traffic stores and using the space to open mini-Samsung stores in time for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4. The next Android flagship model is expected to launch at the end of next month. The mini-Samsung Store will be similar to the specialized Apple area at the big box retailer, with reps trained specifically on devices made by the Korean manufacturer. Specific Samsung products will be demoed.

While the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be the star of the Samsung Mobile department, other Samsung products from tablets to other smartphones will be displayed. Later in the year, a second wave of Best Buy stores will be updated with the Samsung Store and the remodeling will continue until there is a Samsung Store in every Best Buy location.

Best Buy's move shows the power that Samsung has found itself wielding ever since the Samsung Galaxy S II too off in 2011. Last year's Samsung Galaxy S III did phenomenally well and the OEM expects 100 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S4 to be sold before the model is put to pasture.

I wonder if the retail counters will be made out of plastic or high-end materials...

Wow. A classic case of the rich getting richer. That estimate of 100 million for the GS4 may not be out of reach after all.

Wow. Did you gripe about Apple when they got to $700 billion? Or is it just because this is Samsung?

You completely misunderstood my comment. I wasn't griping. I own a Note 2.

when is the release of the S4 again? I'll make sure to mark my calender to stay away from Best Buy during that time. I can see Fox 4 News now, talking to the customers waiting two days in advance. I like samsung, but not that much...#it'snotthatserious

Of course they are $amsung emulates everything Apple does. These Koreans are bold and brash; maybe they should rename the company Xerox.
