First came the Apple retail stores. A technological Disneyland within your local mall.
Next, Microsoft followed suit. And now, Google is looking to create their own retail experiences with official Google Stores. The first Google Store has opened in London, called the Chromezone – which lets you experience Chromebooks and other Google accessories. No Android mobile devices. Not “all things Google”. Just Chromebooks. And apparently, it’s a short-term idea, meant to mainstream these Chrome notebooks.
Perhaps if successful enough, they’ll keep it around?
It’s hard to bet on retail right now though, isn’t it? Can’t Google just buy some AdWords or something?
