This should get interesting.

Microsoft is booting up a retail store at Baybrook Mall.

The company said today it would open its 10th Texas store at the mall, where it will go up against Apple, which installed itself in the shopping center several years ago.

The 1,156-square-foot Microsoft store will employ about 25 people and will offer Windows 8.1 PCs, tablets, Windows Phones, Xbox One, Microsoft Office 365 and more.

Staff will also answer questions, make recommendations and help with PC setups.

In 2009, Microsoft opened its first retail store in Scottsdale, Ariz. 

The chain has grown to 100 stores. 

No word on the exact opening date of the Baybrook store, but I hope to have that answer in Tuesday’s Biz Buzz.

I’m an Apple fan and have never been to a Microsoft store. Where do your loyalties lie?
