Carphone Warehouse has launched the world’s first ever smartphone-powered pop-up internet cafe at its flagship store on Oxford Street, London.
The cafe, which will be open for the next two days this week (Tuesday and Wednesday), has replaced the store computers with Galaxy S3 handsets – while the devices themselves will be available to buy in-store from Thursday.
The facility allows customers to play with one of Samsung’s ‘PC power’ Galaxy S3 smartphones before they officially go on sale in the UK. Spicing up the affair, one lucky visitor will win an S3 of their own each day.
The internet cafe will run from 10am until 8pm GMT on Tuesday, and 8am until 4pm GMT on Wednesday, so get down there if you’re interested.
The Galaxy S3 has been the fastest selling product ever at Carphone Warehouse and the retailer has offered the handset on preorder with £75 worth of freebies. Samsung also rolled out pop-up stores across London at some of the most popular commercial locations in town.
