Microsoft Stores (MSFT +0.9%) are coming to China: COO Kevin Turner says the software giant will open its first Chinese retail store soon (he calls the move "very very strategic to us, big time"), and plans to grow its global store count to 101 from 75 in the next 12 months. Last month, Microsoft announced deals to create 700 "Windows Stores" inside of Best Buy and Future Shop outlets.
