Samsung Australia will open its first official retail store in Australia this month in Sydney, following an invitation sent to the media this morning for an "exclusive preview".

The Samsung Experience Store will be located at 450 George St, Sydney, in the heart of the CBD. Curiously, the Samsung store will be a stone throw away from Apple's largest Australian retail store, which is located at 367 George Street, Sydney.

The new Samsung Experience Store will be exclusively previewed to the media next Wednesday, August 22, from 5pm. The private event will be hosted by Samsung's Vice President of Telecommunications in Australia, Tyler McGee.

The Samsung Experience Store will be the first of its kind in Australia. Last month, the company opened a retail store in Vancouver, Canada, which was the first of its kind in North America.

Specific details of the Sydney store, such as which product lines will be sold, haven't been revealed yet. The store in Canada appears to focus mainly on "mobility products" which Samsung says are devices that consumers can physically take out of the store like smartphones, tablets and notebooks.

Products like the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Samsung Galaxy Note and the Samsung Series 9 notebook all feature prominently in the Canadian store, so we expect much more of the same in Sydney.

Here's an overview of the Canadian store which may or may not be similar to the Sydney one.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
