Windows® 7 to Get Midnight Launch in Tokyo’s Akihabara
Japan will become the first place where Windows 7 will be available to consumers. Tokyo's Akihabara electronics district retailers are preparing to give Microsoft's latest operating system the midnight launch treatment. Some are also planning events or sessions to inform customers about the new features in Windows 7.
A number of shops plan to open their doors on Wednesday evening and begin sales as Thursday, October 22, begins. According to a local media report, the shops planning to open their doors on Wednesday evening are specialist PC retailers and will be selling distributor versions of the software. The Windows 7 retail package version is expected to go on sale at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday morning until major electronics stores open their doors.
But it's possible that many of those zealous enough to get Windows 7 at midnight will already have gotten their hands on a pre-release version of Windows 7 operating system. Microsoft has already released a preview version of Windows 7 and also has made those versions available for download from its Web site.
In addition to stores in Akihabara, PC specialists and parts retailers across Japan are also planning to begin sales at midnight.
The midnight launch will make Japan one of the first places in the world where Windows 7 will be available to consumers.
