Well, that's fun. We've wrapped up Engadget and gdgt's first-ever combined New York City event, and boy howdy did we have a heck of a night. A whole bunch of readers braved the heatwave to queue up hours in advance, forming a line that snaked around the block. When the doors opened, they were greeted with gear-packed event space, including lounges from Sony and Samsung and booths from companies like Toshiba, Qualcomm, Nokia and Sling, plus some smaller outfits like our first-ever Insert Coin winner, Ziphius.

The event also featured panels throughout the night, including conversations with Samsung Mobile VP Nick DiCarlo and Sony Electronics senior manager, Ray Hartjen, plus a roundtable discussion on the state of the industry featuring Jordan Crook from TechCrunch, Kevin Tofel from GigaOm and Harry McCracken from Time. IK Multimedia closed things out with performances by prog band Sound of Contact and Living Color leader Vernon Reid. All in all, not a bad night, if we do say so ourselves. We can't wait to do it again!Engadget + gdgt NYC wrap-up See all photos 32 Photos
