Recently, Microsoft formally began the transition of Nokia-branded retail outlets, with the first ever Microsoft Priority Reseller Store in the world opening in India in Gurgaon, a New Delhi suburb.

India is the first country to roll out the new look. Beginning with the first launch, the transition will be made across a total of 8,872 stores and 119 Care centres by the end of June 2015. Globally, a total of 15,684 retail outlets and 324 Care centres will get a similar makeover.

Microsoft intends to improve customers' shopping experience and highlight the connected devices experience with clear signage and improved navigation within the redesigned stores. Here are some photos from the Gurgaon store.
