Windows 8 Launch, Singapore
Microsoft held the regional launch event of Windows 8 earlier today here in Singapore. Dozens of new PCs, laptops and tablets were showcased in the event that highlighted all of the new features of Windows 8.
Majority of the PC manufacturers were represented here thru their own Windows 8-powered PCs — Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Sony, Samsung and Toshiba. (We’ll talk more about each individual tablets and ultrabooks that we saw here in succeeding posts.)
Here’s a short clip of some footage we took during the live sessions.
The Windows 8 release date is set for tomorrow, October 26 across the Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world. You can download it as an upgrade to your Windows 7 machine, Windows XP or Vista or thru a purchase of a new Windows machine.
Unfortunately, there was no Microsoft Surface in sight. All of the tablets and PCs we’ve seen in the gallery were from 3rd-party partner manufacturers. In two weeks, Microsoft will also hold the Philippine launch of Windows 8.
