Windows 8 launch events in China and Germany now up for replay

On Thursday, we reported on Microsoft's massive Windows 8 event in Times Square in New York City. Now, the company has posted up their own video of the event, where the company turned many of the square's digital billboards into something resembling the "Modern" UI that's being used for Microsoft's next OS.

That's not the only place where the company held Windows 8 launch events last week as the company has now posted up a video clip of the Windows 8 press event in Shanghai, China that was held a few days before the Times Square event. Windows head man Steven Sinofsky is showing off both Windows 8 and Surface in the video and we also see Chinese drummers and dragons on stage introducing the new OS to the press.

Finally, Windows 8 came to Berlin, Germany on Thursday for its own launch that was held at the same time as the New York City event. The video from Microsoft shows that the German event was a little more low key than New York or China release. There are no big digital billboards or drummers here; just a hall where reporters can check out Windows 8 and its many different devices.
