Google has opened its first-ever shop at Currys PC World on London’s Tottenham Court Road, where it will sell the company’s range of Android phones and tablets, Chromebook laptops and Chromecast TV services.
“We’re incredibly excited to launch this space – the first of its kind anywhere in the world,” enthuses James Elias, the UK marketing director for Google.
“With the Google shop, we want to offer people a place where they can play, experiment and learn about all of what Google has to offer; from an incredible range of devices to a totally-connected, seamless online life. We think it’s a genuinely unique try-before-you-buy experience.”
The shop will host regular classes and events, including tutorials about online security as well as how to use Google devices.
Inside The Google Shop you can find a large Portal screen that allowing users to ‘fly’ around the world using Google Earth, a Doodle Wall to experiment with your own Google logo and a Chromecast Pod where customers can watch Google Play movies and YouTube.
Google plans to open two further areas within Currys PC Worlds in Fulham, west London, and Thurrock, Essex.
