Looks like all Microsoft needs is a little time, as they’ve finally added the ability to go shopping in their Microsoft Store app. Yes, the app was bumped to version 2.0 today and with it brings a new redesign and the ability to purchase items.
This morning in the Walt Whitman Mall located in Huntington Station, New York (that’s Long Island), Microsoft finally threw open their doors to a few hundred willing and able customers to their new retail Store.
We were there to cover it all and the mood was very exciting as Microsoft’s pre-show gave away a Samsung Series 9 laptop, Xbox 360 with Kinect and some other goodies to some lucky folks. The line to get in the store lasted well into 30 minutes post opening and the staff on hand did an excellent job.
