Brace yourselves, Samsung Experience Shops opening in 1400 Best Buy stores indeed

Brace yourselves, Samsung Experience Shops opening in 1400 Best Buy stores indeed
The rumor is now official and Samsung is indeed opening its own dedicated place inside 1400 Best Buy stores in the US. 

Called Samsung Experience Shops, these are just the next string in the long chain of marketing efforts by Samsung, which outspends Apple ten to one in that realm, for instance.

About 900 of those will be open by the end of May, and 500 more in the summer. "Samsung Smart Service" and "Samsung Experience Consultants" terms get bandied about, hinting at yet another shot at mimicking Apple's widely successful retail stores.

Samsung and Best Buy are even launching a dedicated section on the retailer's website that is only geared towards the Experience Shops, and offers just Samsung products.

Gingerbreads awfulness flung me into the arms of first the Playbook then the iPad; then out came ICS and wowed me. With my short time with Apple the cults fierce anti-Samsung bias astounded then repulsed me. The greatness of the Galaxy line deserves its own stores to showcase and win back gingerbread created refugees. Is Apple now claiming they invented the "store" now?

I really dont care about plastics. Atleast try to make it good looking. Look at the lumia line up, HTC One X, Sony Xperia Line Up. They all are plastics but all of them looks much better than Samsung.

yeah coz plastic is stronger than your aluminum or glass.. why haters always push plastic as an excuse for their defeats? coz thats d only thing they can say..

That's the only "argument" they got against Samsung. Not really a valid one though, the "cheap" plastic of my GNOTE II deals better with shock than any other handsets made of "premium" materials. Have you seen the drop test of the so-called "premium" HTC One? "Premium" build, isn't it?

I hope the people they send aren't too pushy. Samsung makes good phones but they're not always the best choice for every purchase.

Honestly, for all the bashing people do of Best Buy, where else can you go to see, touch and experience electronic products today? As for pricing, please point me to the store that has the lowest price in the world on every item, because I would like to shop there as well. Yeah, most of us geeks know more about the products then their salespeople do, but I think that says more about us than them...

Samsung trumps HTC yet AGAIN. The HTC One may be an equal phone to the S4, but this kind of move will keep Samsung at the top of the smartphone world for a long, long time.

First Apple, now comes Samsung. Who's next to want their own space, Sony, Lg, Microsoft ? Monkey see monkey do.

LOL...the other company's wouldn't be able to do what Samsung is. Best Buy knows a winner when they see it...
