MELBOURNE, Australia – March 14, 2013 – Samsung Electronics Australia has today announced the opening of its first Melbourne Samsung Experience Store, located inside the newly developed Highpoint Shopping Centre in the western suburbs of Melbourne. Samsung’s second Australian Experience Store will stand alongside high-profile local and international fashion and lifestyle favourites David Jones, TopShop, Zara and Myer.
To celebrate the opening, Samsung will be previewing the new GALAXY Note 8 tablet in the store, offering consumers the ability to see and use the tablet ahead of the Australian sales release in early April. The GALAXY Note 8.0 will also be on show at the Samsung store in George St, Sydney. The Samsung GALAXY Note 8.0 aims to re-ignite the mid-size tablet category, providing exceptional multimedia performance with a compact 8-inch screen. Building on the success of the GALAXY Note II smartphone, the GALAXY Note 8 uses Samsung’s intelligent S Pen technology that allows consumers to enjoy the ease of a traditional pen and paper but with the latest in Samsung’s tablet technology innovation.

The Samsung Experience Store will allow Melbournians to fully immerse themselves in a range of Samsung connected devices. With devices from the flagship Samsung SMART TV range, wireless audio with docks, digital cameras and notebooks all on display, the Experience Store will showcase the connected and diverse range of products offered by Samsung.
