A fan snapping the opening event with a Windows Phone
Last night, Microsoft finally kicked off the Surface RT here in New York City and they did so with great enthusiasm.
We were there for the event, which kicked off at about 9:45PM EDT right in the middle of Times Square. Some folks had begun lining up earlier that day and Microsoft gave them some free Surface jackets for their trouble. The line itself had a few hundred people and it took about nearly two hours just to get into the Store as they had it very controlled--only a specific number of people could enter at a given time, pending others exiting.
