Apple has a strong retail presence. Microsoft began following in the last couple of years. And now Google is beginning to get into the game too with their new “Chromezone”. The first Chromezone officially “opened” their sudo doors this morning in London’s Tottenham Court Road PC World. Arvind Desikan, head of consumer marketing for Google UK said the Chromezone will help in getting people playing with and figuring out Chromebooks and Google’s ChromeOS. Hands-on experience is key according to Desikan:

“We found anecdotally that when people tried the device 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.”

Another Chromezone will go live October 7th in Essex. We’re still waiting on word as to when we can expect this same “Googly Experience” here in the states.
