    New Rumor Suggests Google Will Launch Their Own Retail Stores Soon


    Some new rumors surfaced late Friday night that Google may be getting ready to pull the trigger on a new retail store chain. It seems that Google has been paying attention to Apple's success with their own stores, and would like to duplicate that to boost Android even further. Supposedly, Google is ready to open Google retail stores very soon across the US in several major metros. The primary focus of these stores will be the Nexus devices as well as Google Chrome devices. It is also possible Google plans to debut their new Motorola X Phone in these retail chains later on in the year.

    Most of the industry speculation from analysts and pundits is that now is a perfect time for Google to do precisely this. What do you think? Will a series of physical Google Play Stores actually help Google boost Android?

    I believe it will help. It will allow Google to push their own devices and software to the public, since they would know exactly what they're talking about, instead of letting a third party like Best Buy or a phone carrier try to sell it.

    Interesting considering Android is dominating phones and on its way in tablets. How much of a boost could they really get from stores? Unless it's more about preserving market share.

    It was probably inevitable, but I don't think some of their partners like Google getting into making their own products.

    Excellent idea! Plus it will be nice to see a tech store where their patrons believe in bathing more than once a month..................

    maybe they'll just buy all of VZW towers and summarily execute the entire upper management of Verizon.
