Microsoft Retail Stores opening in the UK in 2013?

Apparently MS is in talks with landlords across the UK over potential sites for Microsoft Stores. Don't expect them to be particularly large though, unless you want to see wall-to-wall surfaces? Perhaps in a year or two MS will have enough to fill a store (a'la Apple) but in a move that will surely isolate OEM's even further, expect these stores to open in prime locations AND be few and far between.
