Oh, Samsung. You're too cute! The company has rented out a storefront two doors down from a Sydney, Australia Apple Store, hawking cut-rate Galaxy S II handsets, and a beautiful dream that they'll wake up from on Friday.

It's an adorable bit of marketing, one that the Sydney Morning Herald noted gave the Samsung pop-up a longer line—imagine that, four days before iPhone 4S ships!—than the Apple store down the street. One reason for the line: those $2 Galaxy S IIs were limited to the first 10 people queued up each day. And the main reason for the store in the first place: a legal spat between Apple and Samsung that's decided, to my infinite entertainment, to break out into the physical realm.
