First Microsoft fan starts camping out for Surface launch in Beijing


CNET has pictures of what will likely be the first buyer of a Microsoft Surface tablet in the world.

Chen Shi has started queuing at the Beijing Suning, the retail chain that will be selling the surface in China. Due to time zones they will be the first to officially start selling the tablet on the 26th.

From the look of the stiles behind him Microsoft expects even bigger crowds to appear eventually.

Microsoft has also started shipping the tablet to those who pre-ordered online, but there is growing concern that even those who ordered early will not be getting it on the big day, making Shi’s strategy not that mad after all.
