While the Windows Phone spotlight is still burning brightly at Nokia World, Microsoft's latest Store Grand Opening is drawing a bit of attention as well.
This morning hundreds of Microsoft customers lined up for the Grand Opening celebration at the Millennia Mall in Orlando, Florida. The Store opened this morning to the cheers of many with complimentary tickets to a Pitbull concert being handed out to 1,600 customers. The first one hundred received tickets to the after-concert party as well.
There were plenty of door prizes given out by Microsoft Store employees and based on the video footage captured by Windows Phone Central reader Tim Gissy with his Nokia Lumia 928, it looked like everyone had a blast. Tim guesstimates the attendance was in the vicinity of 1,500 to 2,000 customers. Much to the dismay of the Apple Store that is one floor down.
We aren't sure if there are any more tickets to tonight's Pitbull concert but if you're in the Orlando area, swing by the mall and check out Microsoft's latest store.
Oh.. and for those in the Edmonton, Canada neighborhood remember that Microsoft Store's Grand Opening with Dierks Bentley is still slated for this Saturday, October 26th. Maybe Birmingham will be next?
Thanks, Tim, for the footage!
