Herald Square Windows Phone event in photos

Sorry folks for being so quiet today from the Herald Square event--we're fighting the busy streets of Manhattan as well as a nasty head cold, making it hectic day.

For our audience, no huge announcements were made besides Spotify which will be welcomed by many as a great addition to the  platform (personally, we're okay with Zune Pass here in the US). Other announcements were focused on the T-Mobile Radar and AT&Ts lineup, sans the HTC Titan. Speaking of the Titan, it was there, but not branded with AT&T's logo. No fear though, it was on the AT&T table but that device seems like it is still a few weeks, at least, away from release. Instead, the Samsung Focus S, Flash and Radar for 4G phones were the main focus of the event.

The main Herald Square event was pretty fun. A large, curious audience of a few hundred gathered and watched as bands like Far East Movement took the stage. There was also a live "Plants vs Zombies" performance, AccuWeather giving the weather, a marriage proposal and pizza that was "ordered" using Bing and then literally delivered to the crowd.

The event was quite festive, well produced and well received. Coupons for phones were giving out, giving discounts to new purchases as well as some hands-on tables. In addition, if you checked in via Foursquare you could pick up a free Windows Phone t-shirt.

All in all, a successful promotion by Microsoft. We're also told the video for the event should be going on the web, so you'll be able to check it out a bit later (if not, we have some laying around).

Thats strange no ATT logo on the titan....when it was first announced they did mention it was for Sprint not ATT....heres hoping we see it on Sprint with 32gb storage or more!

MS needs to take this show on the road-10-15 of the biggest cities in the U.S. Wonder how many people went to this or stumbled upon it and though "maybe I should check these phones out-getting tired of my iphone/adroid/whatever phone"?

i was at the event for about 30 min. it was actually fun and lively. they had an army of people wearing wp tshirts talking to people and showing on lookers how the OS works. The booth had working Focus S and Titan. Focus S was pretty amazing but the Titan's screen was pretty impressive too. i'm glad they're doing this type of activities.

did they put the iphone UI and buttons in the 'countdown' to make it look like the end of iphone? did anyone noticed that that ui and buttons aren't METRO?
