  • Are they giving one away? That would be great.....
  • That would be nice,but no.
  • Nothing in Cincy? Are the Bengals too busy? Isn't the Halo launch event the next day. Or at midnight?
  • Halo launch events are the same day. At my store the Surface Pro 4 event is one hour before the Halo 5 event. Looks like I will be going in to work early on Monday to make sure I can get over there on time.
  • Ahhh. I want the 950XL launch date in India. With Dual Sim version
  • It will be before Diwali.
  • Oh wow. Any official link of this info plz bhai?
  • Ummed pe duniya tiki hai ;) That's the rumor that was associated with India launch on multiple tech sites. What I'm worried about though is the price. If it is inclined towards 50k, I'll probably have to wait longer before I get it :(
  • Hmmm, thanks for that info bro :) yeah me too worried about the price. If we convert 650$ to Rupees we will get about 42,300₹ and I want it to be less than 45k₹
  • Prices out. 38000 for 950. And 43000 for 950XL.
  • Bhai this rate is before the Great Indian taxes. After the tax the price will be higher
  • I think even this time, the surface won't come to India :(
  • Got to twitter and FB and ask MS account and Surface account to bring the Surface to India
  • Man, no STL, and those are some weak guests, other than Hopkins. I mean, seriously, Kirk Cousins?
  • Europe?
  • What, no Christiana Mall in DE with Mark Sanchez?
  • Nothing in Chicago??! Not that I'm there right now, and their store is sort of just an open area in the lobby of a big building. But it's really really nice. And Chicago is a bigass city. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I'll probably try to stop by the Pru in Boston. Dan or Mark, will you guys be there?
  • What?!  No MOA launch event?  I guess that is what I get for not pre-ordering :)
  • You lucky sods lol.
  • TWO Microsoft Stores in the Phoenix area and NO launch events with the Cardinals? o_O
  • Majority of those in line will not buy a Surface, but there will only be one line. Sucks that those of us who want to buy will probably stand behind people who don't give a damn about the Surface.
  • I just might be at the Indy store. Which ninja cat T-shirt should I wear, The original or the T-rex one?
  • Launch Surface, Wen in India?
