Samsung to Open First Two ‘PIN’ Retail Locations in the UK on May 29th


When Samsung announced the upcoming Galaxy S III they made sure to tell us that they had “one more thing” up their sleeve. No, it wasn’t the previously rumored S-Cloud, or even the rumored mysterious 10-inch tablet, it was the announcement of their new “PIN” pop-up retail locations. If you will remember back, PIN is a small retail store in where Samsung plans to give people an up close and personal experience with the new GSIII. At the time of the announcement we really didn’t know when and where these temporary kiosk-like stores would pop up, but now we are hearing that UK folks will get first glimpse. Scheduled to open on May 29th, Westfield’s Shepherd’s Bush and Old Spitalfields Market will be the first two PIN locations to open with more to follow in the coming months. Samsung also has plans to erect many of these overseas so you may eventually get one in your home town as well.

Anyone in the UK planning to stop by one of these two locations on the 29th? If so, send us some pictures!
