Microsoft to open retail stores?
There’s a new rumor starting to make the rounds that I’m a bit surprised by: Microsoft is planning to open its own retail stores.
Let that sink in for a moment.
Sure, many people use Microsoft software and computer accessories, but an entire store dedicated to Microsoft? Seriously?
The rumored Microsoft store be similar to Apple stores and be staffed with experts that can answer customer questions and would likely be more software orientated than Apple stores, though Microsoft does make mice, keyboards, game consoles and Zune’s among other things so there would be some hardware as well.
