Last week we reported on a rumor that Google could be looking to launch their own chain of retail stores across the US, thus making Nexus smartphones and tablets as well as Chromebook devices available via traditional distribution channels. Now it seems that The Wall Street Journal has confirmed those rumors, indicating that they are true and that Google will be launching their own brick and mortar retail outlets, much like their competitors Apple and Microsoft. This will give customers a chance to try out new Android and Chromebook-related products all under one roof, as well promoting the usefulness or features of Google TV, and it seems that it could even be used as a venue in which Google Glass (Google’s wearable computer, for those unfamiliar) can be demonstrated to your average Joe in real life. Sounds like a pretty good idea but since Google has yet to make an official announcement, we will be taking this with a grain of salt for now.
