The Nokia flagship sticks out like a sore thumb among its exclusive designer neighbors, with a retina-singeing electric blue exterior. The three-story retail store is set up similar to the liquor shelves behind a bar: the higher you go, the sweeter the juice. On the first floor, sandwiched between fluorescent-color-changing wall panels and LCD display screens so thin they look like interactive wallpaper, are the cell phones, internet tablets, memory cards, and accessories that keep you connected. Climb up the grand staircase to the second floor for a demonstration of Nokia’s computer-oriented N-series, devices to which phones can connect for music amplification, printing, and file sharing. The top shelf is home to Nokia’s exclusive Vertu collection; the Ferrari 1947 model is snapped up by high-rolling business execs who work nearby, and the Signature rose-gold and pink-sapphire edition is irresistible to the new generation of laides who lunch.
