Microsoft Surface press event available on streaming video

We tried to do a live blog of today's Surface press event in New York City, but unfortunately we ran into some technical issues. Microsoft decided not to offer a live stream of the event but now the company has posted a streaming video replay of the Surface media conference.

The stream doesn't have any embedded code so you will have to go directly to the Microsoft press page to check it out. The video lasts just over an hour and mostly features Microsoft's Surface team leader Panos Panay showing off the Surface Pro 2, the Surface 2 and the new accessories that will be released for the tablets.

The video shows that Panay really seems to enjoy developing the Surface hardware with his team. You can also see how he teases ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley when he says the roadmap for the next three Surface generations is on his personal Surface tablet he brought with him to the press event.

What you can't see in the video is what happened after Panay's presentation, when tons of journalists tred to photograph and take videos of the very few Surface tablets that were brought to the conference. Needless to say, it was a struggle to get some hands-on time with both new Surface tablet models.
