The Apple Retail Store is the best place to learn about all the latest products from Apple including the all-new MacBook Air, the world’s thinnest notebook featuring a stunning 13.3-inch widescreen display with a full-size keyboard and built-in iSight video camera. The hands-on Apple Retail Store experience gives customers a chance to test-drive Apple’s entire product line including iPod touch, the best Wi-Fi mobile device in the world, and the iPhone which combines three devices into one — a mobile phone, a widescreen iPod, and the best mobile Internet device ever — all based on Apple’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface and pioneering software that allows users to control iPhone with just a tap, flick or pinch of their fingers.

Every Apple Retail Store offers personal training through Apple’s new One to One program with in-depth sessions on a wide range of topics, from getting started with a Mac or iPod to advancing your moviemaking or digital photography skills. Visitors to Apple Retail Stores can also take advantage of free services from the most knowledgeable people around, including face-to-face support and creative help at the Genius Bar, plus workshops and special programs for kids.

  1. Oh, great. A second Tampa area store. When Apple will open a store in NW Florida (Gainesville or Tallahassee). I guess our two largest universities and their surrounding communities aren’t enough of a customer base to support a store? A store in Gainesville would draw upon at least four counties worth of potential (and current) Mac users.

  2. Cool. Now Thurrott will probably be so nervous about it and crap in his pants. Why is he nervous in the first place? Would he be nervous if MS had grand openings with the same reaction with consumers?

  3. I moved from Tampa 2 years ago. The other is at International Plaza, which is Tampa’s high end mall. Brandon Town Center is about 25 minutes away and is a nice mall as well. These are good locations for Apple

  4. CPT..i agree–an apple store in Gainesville would be a smokin’ location. Definitely more business than Brandon for wouldn’t surprise me if a Gainesville topped apple sales for the WHOLE STATE. Hey Apple get a clue–> 54,000 students (@ UF) + another 10,000 @ nearby Santa Fe College.
