HTC opens its first retail store (sort of)

HTC opens its first retail store (sort of)
Still trying to find a way out of the grievous situation HTC has found itself in, the smartphone manufacturer has now decided to try to build some much-needed brand recognition by opening its own retail stores, in similar fashion to what Apple and Microsoft are doing these days.

However, if you're HTC today, you wouldn't want to bump up the expenses that much, so HTC will be going with the store-in-store model. The company has already set up the first neat HTC area inside a Saturn store in Hamburg, Germany, and plans to continue opening such "sub-stores" around the world. The staff that's going to handle all the clients there will be trained by HTC itself.

It certainly seems like a good idea by HTC, as it could use all the public awareness it can achieve right now, having in mind how close it is to becoming unprofitable. Which would be sad, of course, as it's one of the very few who could compete with Apple and Samsung on the same level.

Why do you have to bother about the number of thumbs down you have got?! 'Thumbs up' and 'Thumbs down' are nothing to brag or downplay about.

We've always had that in the Philippines. Inside every major mall there's an HTC shop. Pretty much like what Apple has in the country, only Apple's is always bigger.

They still haven't reached many countrys like sammy and nokia. My country for example. It would've been good if they open one in mine.
