My guess is it has to do with:

"Blue: Good fortune, communication, wisdom, protection, spiritual inspiration, calmness, reassurance, gentleness, fluidity, water, sea, harmony, non-threatening

As it does not require the eye to focus, images and objects recede in blue backgrounds. With overuse, can create feelings of cold. Although also popular with women, blue is the predominant favourite colour of males and is suited to web sites involving and promoting technology, medical products, cleanliness, air, sky, water, sea and automotives."

Rule of thumb: every decision made, no matter how seemingly insignificant has a justification for it.

blue has been samsungs colours for ages




I dont know if its a good idea... considering stores like futureshop/bb manufacturer shops don't seem to be able to last

heck just look at The Sony Store they've closed many locations and they're always charging MSRP

there's just no incentive to shop there

exactly samsung's always been blue...but blue just reminds me of bestbuy incompetence...good thing they dont wear tan/beige pants

SonyStyle
no Samsung as long as they dont open up too many will survive because they are a leading mobilemaker..high volume sales compared to sony which probably have most sales coming from big-ticket items. Sony phones/tablets/laptops are pretty much far from popular these days...i dont see people shopping at sony store unless they want to check out TV or HT setups.

once in a blue moon they'll have ridiculously good deals though...only as clearance.

Apple, MS, Samsung are building their own retail stores to double as a marketing strategy. No one goes to BB to play with their products.

A welcome competitor to the Apple Store.

Although they got a huge ways to go if they want to catch up to Apple's supremacy in the retail sector.

Meh, went there yesterday and there was a small line so I didn't bother going in. Samsung stuff isn't exactly groundbreaking enough for me to want to lineup to get in for a peek.

Besides, I have a 10.1 tab, a Samsung desktop display and a couple of their mp3 players from before Android started taking over, those were solid gadgets.

I hate waiting for RMA and you are stuck with a crappy loaner phone for two weeks.
bump..does anyone know if this is the case?

Especially for unlocked phones like the Nexus? Or do they tell you to piss off and bug your cell phone shop instead?
