People lining up in the US for the Microsoft Surface

We have had a few of you send in photos from around the US today showing some MS Stores opening and sure enough, there are some crowds.

While none of it touches New York City and Times Square, it’s a good sign that quite a few people are interested in the Surface. And those kiosks seem like a great way to intercept people traversing stores in the mall.

The images in the post come from three locations:

  • Frisco, Texas (from Rutvik P.)
  • Bellevue Square Mall, Bellevue, WA (from Yuri D.)
  • Galleria Mall, St. Louis (from Kyle L.)

Have you seen lines or crowds at your local Microsoft Store or kiosk? Sound off in comments and share your experiences!
