Long gone are the days when only Apple would get special sections of stores to demo its products, and a serious clue is the fact that Best Buy Samsung stores will be established by the time the Galaxy S4 makes its way into the retailer’s stocks.
The battle between the two giants isn’t taking place only on the market share field; even retail space is something to be contested between them. Samsung is making a huge step, because Best Buy locations will also have Samsung stores, along with the Apple stores it already has, as geek.com has found out.
The move will happen in a first batch of high-traffic Best Buy locations by the time the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available, and the same source says that two aisles in the mobile departments will be cleared to make room for the new, Samsung-branded stores; also, employees who will work there will go through special trainings.
Of course, not only the S4 will be demoed in said store areas – all important Samsung tablets and smartphones will be available there, and, while this only happens for a number of high-traffic stores, the same source says that all Best Buy locations will end up having a Best Buy Samsung store later this year.
What do you think about this idea?

And here we go with the Android Betrayer’s TIZEN(I mean samsung) making big marketing sh..t for the Galaxy S4. You see that’s why I remember the number 4 was the unlucky number for Korea…
unlucky for chinese not korea..
I’m not sure how I feel about this. I love my Note 2 and Note 10.1, and it’s great that devices like this are finally getting some of the attention that iDevices always got but Samsung’s just getting too big. I’m hoping some of the other manufacturers can make at least some sort of splash enough to even out the competition a little bit. I don’t like the direction Samsung is heading and unfortunately for me, they’re the only ones that make a pen-equipped device.
Freedoms can’t be that popular with you! You are now deciding who is too big? Samsung makes abroad array of products container ships to computer chips and NOW they are too big? Do we need a democracy intervention in the handset world so lame technology can get a fair share at proving they are already obsolete? You sound like a liberal crybaby lobbying for A SUPREME COURT RULING!
You sound like a butthurt right winger looking for an excuse to insult random people by overanalyzing their comments.
HEY THERE “FP”, where the FUCK have you been? Samsung IS “evening out the competition” DUH, have you noticed an upstart company called APPLE over the last 20 years? Sounds like LOTS of good competition out there, no worries on your “pen-equipped” envy. If enough people (besides you) want a fucking “pen-equipped device”, someone will make it.
Yeah, and on a related note, how IS Stevie Jobs doing in his iCoffin these days?
But yeah, “Michael Paul” is a luzer selfish bagger too. MORE than happy to take HIS causes to the SCOTUS, but how DARE anyone else… in fact, s/he seems SO insecure that s/he must adopt the last name of his retarded leader in the so-called “Libertarian” wing of the fucktard party.
Have a nice day y’all… well, everyone except for “Michael”.
You do know that you answered to the wrong guy? :)
Actually, Lenovo released the ThinkPad Tablet (with a stylus) before the Galaxy Note! And the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is available now and has a stylus also.
“But Samsung is getting to big” wah wah wah… Well good for them they deserve it because they know how to innovate and market their products. It’s not all about Apple anymore and i’m glad that Samsung is kicking ass!
Why does it matter?
I’m happy too that someone is competing with Apple, but Samsung has become such a large phone manufacturer that they dwarf all other OEMs. The whole point of Android is to be open source and widely varied, but Samsung is so big that only a small number of people buy from the other OEMs, which means that they get weaker. And when one company dominates the system, innovation suffers. Also, many are worried that if Samsung was to go 100% Tizen, then Android could be doomed. I personally don’t believe this, but will admit its a possibility if they create an Apple like cult following. To put things in perspective, Samsung spent $12 billion on marketing last year, as opposed to Apple which spent far less than $1 billion.
My part time job is at a bestbuy. I’m all for this, tired of all the iSheep
I think it’s a great idea! Samsung makes some great products and we need someone to go head to head with Apple, they are getting too big for their britches! There are a couple of the Samsung in Best Buy stores open now – one in N Ft Worth and one in Lewisville, TX
if his pisses off crapple or the iBoys, it all good. if it means just one less crapple sold, im all for it.
I say a dude on the corner sellin sammies he said he was a sub.with best buy! Hey y not, what ever it takes, right! The moral to the story is he who has the most exposure wins, or he who dies with the most monies wins!
