An extremely reliable source has confirmed to us that Google is in the process of building stand-alone retail stores in the U.S. and hopes to have the first flagship Google Stores open for the holidays in major metropolitan areas.
I expect a souring of relations between Samsung and Google. A presence in retail will give Google an opportunity to instate the “Nexus” brand into the minds of normal people. I don’t think Samsung will want to let that happen.
