It was around this time last year that HTC opened up a Concept Store in Malaysia. Now HTC has done it again, opening another Concept store, this time still in far flung Quezon City, Philippines.
HTC has teamed with with its local distributor SIS Philippines to open up the store on the 4th floor of the Cyberzone Annex of SM North EDSA in Quezon City.
"Currently we see a growth in the consumer segment and in order for us to enhance our reach to our end users, it’s vital for us to roll out in the retail market as well," says HTC Country Manager Mark Dewey Sergio.
"They will also be able to experience an interactive demonstration of our TouchFlo 3d UI featured in the latest HTC Windows Mobile devices in our Diamond 2 mock up which is displayed in the store as well."
"What is even more exciting about this new store opening is that also coincides with a lot of innovations that have been recently introduced by HTC in the market," Sergio enthuses. "Innovations like the Touchflo3D,the HTC Footprints and the People Centric Communication are just some of our answers to our consumer needs."
The store will offer education on the use of new features, discounts on many models and also a dedicated service corner.
"Here, customers who wish to optimize and enhance the performance of their HTC devices can bring them to the HTC Concept Store for on-site diagnostic testing," he announces. "This diagnostic test will easily determine the time required for repairs. In uncomplicated cases, repairs can be finished within two working days while more complex cases may require a longer time. But with our speedy turn-around guarantee for all service repairs conducted at our store, we will provide our customers with a loaned unit during the repair waiting period."
"We will also be offering promos for Selected HTC devices so that will be something to watch out for," Sergio further reveals. "And we will be launching new and exciting phones this coming quarter under the Windows Mobile and the Android Platform where social networking features are readily available so that’s good news for those who are into sites like Facebook and Friendster."
Now when is HTC bringing this concept a bit closer to the west? I would definitely make the pilgrimage, if only to fondle some otherwise unavailable models.
