Samsung Experience shops beginning their launch within Best Buy

Samsung Experience shops beginning their launch within Best Buy
We have been hearing about these Samsung shops making an appearance within Best Buy locations across the United States for some time now.

Today in New York City, the newest Samsung Experience Shop was unveiled at Union Square. By early summer this year, Samsung and Best Buy will have put in place these new shops at over 1,400 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile locations.

These new experience shops will give customers a chance to get up close and personal with the wide range of Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S4. In fact, a lucky bunch of visitors to Union Square today were picked to attend an appreciation event featuring Grammy winner Bruno Mars.

Beyond the festivities though, the new space brings more of the breadth of Samsung’s solutions to consumers. The experience shops will also showcase Samsung’s home automation, “Allshare,” a host of accessories for your new Samsung devices and everything in between.

The Samsung Experience Shops across the country will all be sporting the new Galaxy S4 starting Saturday, April 27th.

I am a total Android person...but Apple does already have these kind of booths in Best Buys around the U.S.. Samsung in a way is sort of copying.. I own an S3 and love it and love Samsung, but this is a way of copying..

BMW is also copying Mercedes because they have a car dealership too.

Obviously you are either immature and know nothing about business or you are untruthful about your use of "S3". We have DHL, UPS, USPS.. Mc, Wendys, then we have Applebees..Red Lobster...Also, IOS, Windows, Android...Mercedes, Renault(i am sure you never heard of that) Peugeot, Toyota, .... education is key in any argument

They aren't copying Apple... Best Buy has multiple vendor displays in their store. So are Dyson and Cannon copying Apple as well because they have their own spot in Best Buy with just their products? No. It's simple business. They have a spot to sell their products with staff knowledgable about their products specifically. It's a great business stratgey used by multiple companys not just Apple. Ignorant people these days....

There is a Huge difference between the Apple Demo and Samsung Store. The Apple Demo is just a demo nothing further. I am a Samsung rep working in one of the stores. The Samsung Store has a POS for check out and also a diagnostic laptop to update software or to do trouble shooting for current and old Samsung devices.

"Today in New York City, the first Samsung Experience Shop was unveiled at Union Square." Wait I just went thru a Samsung demo store thing in a Best Buy in Seattle a week ago. How is the one in Union Square the first one?

LoL Doakie I have no clue why Phonearena don't have their facts straight. The first store was in Dallas where corporate is, as a test store months ago. Texas was technically first.

You couldn't even copy and paste correctly? Scroll back up the page and you'll see they never said it was the "first". Instead they said "Today in New York City, the newest Samsung Experience Shop was unveiled at Union Square". Newest. Not first.
