Meet Your Match at Westfield Stratford: Demo fun for everyone

The Windows Phone 8 launch activities continue in full with the “Meet Your Match” demo crew hitting various sites around the UK. Today they are in London’s biggest shopping mall, Westfield Stratford.

The holiday season is upon us and this is the best time for Microsoft to make a splash highlighting Windows Phone 8. If you’re in London and want to check out some Windows Phone 8 device and have a chance at winning £100 read on past the break to find out more.

The guys will be at the centre until 18:00 today to provide some hands on demos to potential customers. We headed there very early today to see what was going on and it was still pretty quiet, they were still setting up. We also noted that they had a demonstrator on hand in the O2 store to provide some help with the devices. Sadly the O2 shop is still without the ATIV S and the ATIV TAB units for their nice display. That should be changing soon with availability now on schedule for the coming days.

They have some stiff competition there today as Samsung have taken over a huge section of the public space to demo their Galaxy line of handsets and their Smart TV’s, is there no end to their marketing budget? Also of note is that most of the screens there are displaying Windows Phone 8 adverts on rotation. Other Microsoft action there includes HP who have set up a Meet Windows 8 area and PCWorld have a huge touchscreen built into their Window to show off Windows 8’s new interface.

The last event we attended had prizes and free drinks, were we too early for them at his event or have things changed?

If you have been there today and had a demo we’d like to know what you thought. While we’re here have you guys been seeing these types of events elsewhere in the world? Let us know in the comments.
