As we reported last week, Best Buy and Samsung have officially announced that Samsung will be opening store-within-a-store outlets called Samsung Experience Shops at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile locations, just in time for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 launch.
Apple has a store-within-a-store partnership with Best Buy, which allows it to re-create the Apple retail experience within the retailer’s stores. The partnership has worked out well for both companies.
But it looks like Samsung will also be opening similar store-within-a-store outlets at Best Buy just in time for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 launch, according to a report from Geek.com.

Let the iPhone 5 price wars begin! Yesterday we posted that Best Buy was discounting the iPhone 5 by $50 and one commenter noted that this wasn’t just a two-day sale, but something that will last until January.
