Yesterday we launched in Hong Kong. First my apologies to the people of Hong Kong. I am really sorry I was not there for the FON party, but my wife is due any moment now and my fourth child should be born this week, so I could not attend. I hope you understand.

Second, I want to congratulate Yat Siu and his team. Guys you did an AMAZING job. Bravo! What follows are links to pictures of the event and news coverage. If you have any more links, please send them to me and I will publish them.

There was a strong media attention, mostly local news here:
