Microsoft have kicked of Tech.Ed with their annual opening party. There were plenty of Microsoft Partners on show, but one of the stranger events of the night was being told I had to delete photos of WP7. Despite US-reviews of development hardware being online for months now, apparently we couldn’t even take photos tonight. Furthermore I wasn’t able to hold the device, but was able to test multi-touch with pinch to zoom. Fortunately I’ll get a personalised demo of WP7 where there should be a good opportunity for photos / videos and a hands-on.
As for the rest of the opening party, attendees seemed to be having a good time with free beer and wine on offer as well as popcorn, giveaways, slot cars and Halo-style RC cars competition held by Gold Coast meter maids. Check out the gallery below if you couldn’t make it to the event.
