Microsoft To Open Retail Store Opposite Apple Store In Mall Of America

Microsoft might be on collision course with Apple again as word is out that the company’s upcoming store in the Mall of America in Minneapolis will be sitting directly opposite to the Apple store. If that wasn’t enough to befuddle consumers passing by, the store will apparently be twice as wide as Apple’s store, though real estate probably isn’t the only factor that determines the success of a store. It wasn’t confirmed when the store will be open, but there is a possibility that it might open before the Windows Phone 7 launch, as the graphics on the walls feature Windows Phone 7. Microsoft has also opted to emulate Apple’s Genius Bar by offering an Answer Desk, and it’ll be interesting to see how popular the Answer Desk will be with PC users who are having trouble with their computers.
