More Windows 8 videos surface on its Amazon product listings, packaging revealed
More Windows 8 videos, along with potential packaging have surfaced on Amazon UK product pages. The Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Standard - Pro, and Windows 8 Pro N upgrade editions are accompanied by fourteen videos in total, each walking the viewer through a different feature, functionality or ability in the next version of Microsoft's operating system. We're quickly drawing closer to the release date of Windows 8, as well as Windows Phone 8, and more.
Just as these new videos come to light, the batch published on YouTube, which we covered yesterday have been removed (due to copyright claims filed by Microsoft). They are included in the compiled list below (from Amazon), so it's not an issue for those of you who may have missed our earlier article. We can expect Microsoft to use these videos on television, but if not the company can always use similar style.
The videos are as follows:
- Meet Windows 8 (opens in new tab)
- Make it yours (opens in new tab)
- Personalise your experience (opens in new tab)
- Work hard, play hard (opens in new tab)
- The store (opens in new tab)
- All about apps (opens in new tab)
- Find things with search (opens in new tab)
- Learn about search (opens in new tab)
- Internet Explorer 10 (opens in new tab)
- Command your apps (opens in new tab)
- Share photos, links and more (opens in new tab)
- Switch between apps (opens in new tab)
- Change your settings (opens in new tab)
- Snap your apps (opens in new tab)
As mentioned above, Amazon has also unveiled Windows 8 packaging for the different upgrade products. Windows 8 Pro will be the standard upgrade, while the Standard-Pro box will provide the owner a key for migration between the two versions. Windows 8 Pro N ships without Windows Media Player. So what do you make of the videos and presented box art?

EVERYTHING'S GORGEOUS IN MICROSOFT-LAND!!!!!!
I'm fuxxin with the 920, but man-oh-man if they had a surface phone announced I'd hop on that. Quicly becoming a Microsoft-fanboy much in the way I used to be a Segafan back in the dreamcast/saturn era
Happy though. From the xbox, to the 360, to the zune, and soon the surface... Microsoft makes great products
it's pretty representative of the new microsoft image wise, clean lines with a splash of color.
i hope they offer pro in non disc versions of some kind, the dvd drive broke on my desktop and i haven't bothered to replace it.
Lol for you
i personally like clean installs better
