Microsoft opened the doors to their new store here in Scottsdale, AZ today at Fashion Square Mall blending ‘high technology with high fashion’ as one speaker said. I was able to grab a press pass and sneak inside (along with hundreds of others) and see what’s happening and new. Microsoft had a wrap around projection screen (and I mean wrapped around the store) hooked up to various XBOX 360s, PCs, and Notebooks. The Microsoft Surface table was on display in various parts of the store showcasing the multitouch features including Microsoft Concierge, a product gallery and some cool games for parties. Too bad it’s dishing out at $30K for commercial use only right now, but they hope to bring that down for consumers in the near future. What you really want to know about though is Windows Mobile. That’s where I headed first.
The Windows Mobile, or ‘Windows Phone,’ station was meager and only offered up four phones and two mifi’s. I had my fingers crossed for a sneak at Windows 7 but the world doesn’t work that way. All four phones were sporting Windows Mobile 6.5 and none were from T-Mobile. By the way, there is an update for the Touch Pro2 to Windows Mobile 6.5 on the HTC website but it isn’t carrier specific so don’t count on tech support from T-Mobile yet. The MS employees told me what we already know about 6.5 on T-Mobile, that when T-Mobile is done with quality control and checking it will be released to us in an official ROM. Good news (sigh), Windows Mobile 7 will be out…’next year sometime’
Microsoft was giving away goodie bags and gift cards to everyone, and a free copy of Office to the first 1,000 PC/notebook/netbook purchases. Without further ado, check out the random pictures after the jump! More >
Recently we’ve been moving into covering all of the T-Mobile Smartphones and to reflect that appropriately we’ve added every device (and more) to the AllShadow Store. This means that you can get software and accessories for all the phones you own and for friends and family too!
To entice you to stimulate the economy a little we’re extending the 20% Software Coupon to the 27th! So head over to the store and use the coupon code EATACUPCAKE.
I’m sad that I haven’t received Cupcake yet. I also figure that many of you might be sad too. There isn’t much love coming until July in the hardware department but what about software?
I figure a 20% off deal in the AllShadow Store might brighten a lot of you up! I know a deal when I see one. So head over to the store and use the coupon code EATACUPCAKE for 20% on all software. It’s good for one month (until June 13th, 2009) so that should put what you want within reach.
It is finally here! The AllShadow.com Store is now open and full of smartphone software and Shadow accessories, all guaranteed to work with your Shadow. We have put together a list of recommended software and accessories that you might find interesting. Before you go shopping, remember the 20% discount code for software is SHADOWOPEN and will be good until Feb 15th, so take advantage of it while you can. Your purchase at the AllShadow.com store helps to support the existence of this site, so thanks in advance for your patronage.

As mentioned previously, everyone should be getting really excited about the new store. ‘When is it going to open?’ you may ask, why it will open tomorrow evening! We’ve worked real hard to make sure all the essentials are there and then some. You will be able to find software for nearly every need as well as accessories you didn’t know existed. For example, the docking cradle for the Shadow, and an extended battery with 2-3 times the battery life, Bluetooth headsets and carkits, screen protectors, Shadow bling, cases, armstraps, memory cards and GPS.
All this with a limited time 20% discount!
So get ready to start browsing, we open the doors Friday evening.
