Nokia Opens First Flagship Store - In Russia?

Nokia opened the doors to its very first flagship store yesterday—in Moscow! I guess the budding mafiya market is something they want to grab early—after all, they go through cell phones like candy, changing SIM cards almost every day to evade Putin's raiders. Promising 17 similar stores in the next 2 years, Nokia says these openings are part of its "revised retail strategy" and have given no details on where the next stores will be located. So get ready New Delhi, Nokia may be coming your way! The company feels these outlets will be mostly used for customer feedback rather than main sales channels and they'll be wholly owned and operated by the Finnish company.
