If you want to become a staple in the US, you'll only need to open some kind of store in the heart of New York City to get your brand recognition to the hustle and bustle atmosphere surrounding one of the world's most recognizable cities in the world. There is no denying that Nokia is widely recognized around the world, but it still has some work ahead itself when it comes to the US market – they obviously don't have that presence as they do in other countries. Nokia opened a store in New York City to get itself situated in a city where technology oriented individuals are known to prowl the street to find the latest devices in the mobile world. As we've reported back in December
, Nokia planned on closing down its flagship stores in both Chicago and New York City as the stores didn't prove quite as profitable to their bottom lines. Unfortunately, the New York location is practically lifeless as it stands right now with few handsets still available for purchase. As for the Chicago location, it would seem like it still has some breathing room left as there is no set date for its closing.
