First Windows Vista sale will be in New Zealand

Taking a break from kicking things over a long distance, Daniel Carter will be the first person in the world to officially purchase a retail copy of Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows Vista.

Dick Smith has planned two midnight launches at its powerhouse stores in Hamilton and Manukau on this coming Tuesday. New Zealand will be the first country in the world to offer Vista to the general public.

Joanna Austin-Smith, marketing and communications manager at Dick Smith says the company is proud and excited to offer customers the world-first experience.

“There will be an extensive setup at our two locations, with the Xbox 360 truck and a Vista lounge at our Manukau location. We will set up Vista to show the public how it can work from the bedroom to the lounge. People will be able to try the operating system before they buy.”

Dick Smith has also arranged a $15,000 prize draw for one lucky customer to win on the night, as well as giveaways and promotions.

“We’re the first in the world to sell this product, so we want to create a little bit of a buzz around this,” says Austin-Smith.
