Google pushes Chromebooks in London retail launch

Concession within Tottenham Court Rd PC World
Publish date:

Google has opened the internet giant's first retail store, not in the US but in London's Tottenham Court Road.

While it's not really a shop as such, Google's concession within the TCR branch of PC World will run up to Christmas as the firm markets a range of Google 'Chromebook' devices and accessories.

Interestingly the move seems exclusively aimed at launching the lightweight browser-based OS Chrome rather than focusing on other more popular Google products such as Android smartphones.

The 285 square foot concession showed off a number of Chromebook models and featured Chrome branding and a large screen running a promotional display.
