Microsoft’s Windows Phone Backstage Event

Wmpoweruser was invited to New York today for a special launch event for the second generation of Windows Phones.  It took place at the New Yorker Hotel, and the team was quite literal with “backstage” with the venue taking place backstage.  All the 7.5 Windows Phones were available to be handled and Microsoft executives like Andy Lees and Joe Belfiore were on hand to talk to the press.

Andy Lees also gave an introduction to the event.  Much of what his speech contained is well known to our readers, but some may find it interesting hearing it straight from a Microsoft executive.

Also the day culminated in the unveiling of a gigantic Windows Phone in Harold Square.  While I think it was all a bit much, it did get the New Yorkers nearby interested in what was going on.  Hours later, there were still long lines to get to see the Windows Phones.
