HTC gives retail a shot, opens first concept store in Germany
From the looks of it, HTC has decided to not go all out on its retail strategy just yet. Instead of opening up a fully operational retail store in a standalone location, it has launched a store-within-a-store type setup at a Saturn electronics shop. The current iteration of HTC’s own retail store is still pretty bare, as you can see from the photo posted above. But it does have a kind of homey feel to it, which will no doubt make all those who visit feel comfortable with the devices and probably want to take them home after a few minutes of testing.
Of course, the real result of HTC’s new retail strategy still remains to be seen. Will it be enough to buoy the ailing Taiwanese electronics maker amidst the rising tide of Android competitors? We’ll all find out soon enough.
