- Tech pundit and Google Glass evangelist Robert Scoble reports hearing Google (GOOG +0.3%) is planning to rent 6K sq. feet worth of space at every Best Buy (BBY +2.8%) store next year to promote Google Glass.
- Is Scoble's source off by a decimal? Best Buy's stores have 20K-45K sq. feet of floor space (inc. register aisles and everything else). If the rumor is true, Google would be renting 13%-30% of available space.
- Regardless, Best Buy appears to be getting a lift from the rumor, as is Glass microdisplay supplier Himax (HIMX +3%).
- Google already has a Chromebook marketing partnership with Best Buy.
