Chrome Zone Shop Opened in London – Google
Google falling in lines of Apple Store, Google recently opened its Google shop named as Chrome Zone. Google has had a shop before but it was inter campus in California. The store opened to give people first hand glimpse of what Google products exactly look like. It opened in a well-known street in upmarket London in a cluster of technology outlets. The star in the show was Google Chromebooks in a real world retail environment.
It opened in the Tottenham Court Road where only exclusive Google products would be show cased. Chrome books such as Samsung’s Series 5, which resemble normal laptops but rely on near supply of internet connectivity to support the web-based applications that can perform.
“The Chrome Zone is designed to be as open, colourful and user-friendly as possible, and there are seating areas for shoppers to enable them to try out Chromebooks in comfort,” Google said in a statement.
The experience of Google’s Chromebook would be quite unusual for users of basic desktop. It would be almost uncomfortable to them while using but will surely gather momentum once time passes by and people try to get accustomed with tablets and notebooks.
According to Arvind Desikan, Google UK’s head of consumer marketing at Google UK, the company had “found anecdotally that when people tried the [Chromebook] and played with it, that made a huge difference to their understanding of what the Chromebook is all about”.
“People will be able to go in and have a play with the devices. We want to see whether people understand what this device is all about and monitor their reaction when they try it out,” Desikan is quoted in London’s Evening Standard as saying.
Google also said that special trained experts would be available to make people understand the simplicities or the so-called difficulties of the Chromebook. If further indications are to be believed then Google may soon open up stores in Essex followed by more such pilot shops globally.
