Want to test out the Galaxy S 5 and the new Galaxy Gear line before release date?

Starting today, Best Buy will be making sample units of the devices available to the public in its stores, weeks before their respective launch dates.

This would mark the first time a retailer has ever showcased a phone before its launch. The deal is part of Samsung’s year-old partnership with Best Buy, which brought nearly 1,400 Samsung “experience shops” within select Best Buy locations.

Best Buy’s goal here is preorders, and we’re expecting that number to be pretty high in anticipation for the launch of Samsung’s newest line of Galaxy devices.

After announcing the Sony SmartBand at MWC 2014 this week, Sony has wasted no time in starting the retail blitz to get the devices into the hands of buyers. On the Sony Mobile Store, the device has already shown up for pre-order for £79.99 ($134 USD) in the U.K. and €99 ($136 USD) for other European markets. Although, Sony indicated the devices would be available in a variety of colors, thus far black appears to be the only choice available for early adopters that want to be the first to get the devices onto their wrists.

The first units of the Sony SmartBand destined for European markets and the U.K. are expected to be delivered in early April. That will give buyers an opportunity to spend some time with the Lifelog application prior to having the device in hand as Sony says the app should be available in Google Play sometime in March.
