First 900 locations will be ready in May with the remainder coming by early summer

Samsung has announced that it has teamed up with Best Buy to help promote the wide range of Samsung mobile products. The partnership between Samsung and Best Buy will see Samsung Experience Shops installed in 1,400 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile locations around the country.

The installation of the Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy locations around the country will be rolled out in stages. Samsung expects 900 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile locations around the country will have Experience Shops by early May, while the remaining locations will have them installed by early summer.

Customers who visit the Samsung Experience Shop will be able to touch and play with Samsung's full range of mobile products including smartphones, tablets, laptops, connected cameras, and accessories. Some Best Buy locations will also get Samsung Smart Service with dedicated Samsung Experience Consultants and Best Buy blue shirt sales associates.

Employees working these Experience Shops will be specially trained on Samsung products including activation and usage. These employees will be able to help customers with demonstrations, basic product services, Samsung account set up, warranty registration, and post purchase support.

If this sounds familiar, it’s because Apple has already made its mark on Best Buy stores with dedicated sections that display various products ranging from iPads to MacBook Airs to iMacs.

"Samsung has been delivering the latest innovation across the consumer electronics category for some time," said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. "With the Samsung Experience Shops, we are ensuring consumers get the most of that innovation by learning how to leverage their mobile devices across our ecosystem of consumer electronics. Consumers will have one place to not only explore and learn about our full portfolio of mobile products, but also the support of a Samsung expert to help with selecting and servicing them. This will truly be a unique mobile shopping experience."

Samsung says the largest of its Experience Shops will be approximately 460 square feet. The size of the Experience Shops will of course vary depending on the Best Buy store size.
Rumors surfaced earlier this week that Samsung would soon be launching a line of big-screen smartphones called Mega. Devices such as this will certainly be featured prominently in the Experience Shop locations.

That kind of outs your bias. You can say Android is alot of things, but considering all it does and all it supports while IOS still has its same "one way, one size, one chip, one screen, one option fits all" you cannot call it crummy. Its is FAR more complete an OS and dynamic than the walled garden IOS approach.

What's crummy is its continued laggy performance, the amount of malware, massive fragmentation, lack of polish, developers treating it as a second class platform, and Google still not having as much control as they should over carriers and manufacturers.

It is damaging to the platform and harmful to customers, which is why it is inferior to iOS and Windows Phone in so many ways.

Can you imagine a real OS that only supports a couple of different resolutions and only when doubling the initial release. That would be like MS Windows only supporting 640x480 and 1280x960. Nope, sorry, that is the only options. LOL IOS cant even deal with a different res and you think its a superior OS?

And again you reveal your complete lack of technical knowledge. There is a massive difference between a windowed desktop operating system on uses large displays and one that runs everything fullscreen on small displays.

The technical considerations between optimizing UIs between the two are completely different, but obviously you know more about this than Microsoft, Blizzard, EA, and the numerous developers that make applications ranging from social to pro apps for things going from the financial to the medical fields while leaving Android behind.

Supporting multiple resolutions had made Android apps worse, not better, and this is why Apple continues to maintain a standardized platform.

Fullscreen and limited versus windowed and large. Get it through your head.

You should really stop visiting tech sites, because either you aren't up to the "tech" or at least change to a platform that has more merits if you are going to blindly defend it with such vigor.

Pot, meet kettle.

Seriously, half your silly list are either features iOS had way back in 2009 through applications, are the byproduct of big chassis which most people do not like (your beloved GS3 is a niche product, sorry), or are legacy features like mini-HDMI.

Who needs HDMI on a phone when you've got Miracast or AirPlay? Its like the people who defended dead tech like optical drives in laptops, such a waste of space!

So many things you put on your list are either personal preference or are superficial flash without real practical utility for most.

Applications, a polished efficient UI, and solid hardware, those are important to me.

Why are you so shallow?
