Part 1. Stopped into the Nokia Store in Chicago on 7-14-2006 General impressions. Store is long and narrow with phones displayed along both side walls and on platforms in the middle of the room. Above the long line of phones is a continuous set of video panels with changing displays. The lighted wall panels above these also change. A good deal of auxiliary equipment is displayed including printers, speakers and computers. I didn't have much time, so I couldn't play with all the displays, but my impression was that they really wanted to show you cool stuff you can do with your phone besides just make calls. Here the phone is marketed as a central part of your gadget-filled lifestyle. 6126 MIA. The 6126 was nowhere to be found and the staff did not know when it's to be released. When I mentioned that rumors had Cingular releasing it as early as next week, one said. "Well if that's true we should have it in a few weeks". All in all, they seemed as noncommittal about release dates as the staff in service provider stores. Although Charlyee predicted this, it surprised me a bit. I thought that Nokia would have control over when it released a given (already announced and marketed) phone and thus would be interested in promoting it with a release date, like a movie or a new version of Windows.
