And so I was invited to a Microsoft Meet & Greet event at No.5 Emerald Hill earlier this evening. The various representatives talked about (and presented live demos of, where available) the powerful upcoming models-to-watch for desktops, laptops and tablets, a little mention about Windows 8, Windows Skydrive service, Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger features, Windows Phone 7 with Mango, IE9 and HTML5, and Xbox360 upcoming Hardcore and Kinect games.
They even had specially-concocted cocktails – (i can’t remember the first one), Sky Diver, Mango Promise, Sexplorer and Kinection – named after each presentation. At the end of the preview, we spent more time networking while helping ourselves to the free flow of food and drinks. Yes, we could order as much as we want! And there were also freebies to take home. Thank you Microsoft!
Stay tuned for in-depth highlights on what you can expect from Microsoft in the next coming months.
