Google To Open Physical Stores In India To Push Pixel Sales

At least two prominent malls in India have apparently received requests to set up a physical Google store. The offline presence may launch sometime in late 2018, the report said.

In addition to opening pop-up locations in Los Angeles and NY for the 2017 Made by Google lineup, the company opened a series of similar stores in India.

It has been projected that the bill proposes to protect the rights of the married Muslim women. First and front, the punishment of three years for an offender is not justified.

The first-gen Pixel flew under the radar in India thanks to an underwhelming marketing campaign by Google, and the company vowed to fix things with its successor. Apart from that, Google's Pixel smartphones are priced on the higher side as opposed to the large offering by Chinese vendors which are quite affordable. "They got a flavour of how physical stores are also important because you can't explain numerous features online". As an example, he pointed out that the pop-up store in his mall included a dark room so that consumers could see for themselves how well the Pixel 2 camera takes pictures in locations with low-lights. Other devices to make their way could be Chromecast streaming devices, Pixel laptops and Google's Daydream View VR headset.

A local news report claims that Google has hired a former senior Apple executive to lead its retail charge in India.

Analysts were allegedly given alternative wordings that they were encouraged to use, in some cases. Others have speculated that the list did not come from Trump administration officials at all.

This retail expansion comes as more than a dozen pop-up stores opened in recent months throughout the country proved successful. However, a similar attempt failed earlier when Google partnered with Spice to setup 50 AndroidLand Stores in India within 18 months, but they failed miserably with having just two stores in Select Citywalk in Delhi and The Great India Place Mall in Noida, which eventually closed due to poor sales. Unlike a Samsung or an Apple, Google Pixel handsets are not easily available across the country in physical stores. Samsung branded stores are owned and operated by franchisees in India, Xiaomi's Mi Home physical outlets are owned by franchisees. They had some outlets in the country in collaboration with Spice Connect, but they shut them soon very quickly. Getting a single-brand license gives Google more control over the design of its stores, but the process itself is a lengthy affair - Apple has been trying for over a year to acquire a license.
