Microsoft Is Now Attacking The iPad Mini [VIDEO]

Microsoft seems to be on an iPad crusade at the moment and targeting everything iPad. Only yesterday we shared with you guys another commercial that was mean to show how the Surface RT was better than the iPad and today Microsoft has posted another commercial.

Microsoft Is Now Attacking The iPad Mini

This particular commercial, however, isn’t aimed at the full-sized iPad rather the iPad Mini. It features Acer’s 8.1-inch Iconia W3 tablet and starts off by showing both tablets loading up an ebook and then of course Microsoft begins showing what the iPad Mini can’t do…

  • It can’t play Halo (but it can play hundreds of thousands of other games)
  • It doesn’t have Outlook and full Office
  • It can’t run legacy Windows apps

Sorry Microsoft, if all of these things mattered I don’t think you would be putting up with a near $1 billion loss of unsold Surface inventory.

What do you think of Microsoft’s recent advertising tactics? Is this payback for all of those Mac vs. PC commercials? Let us know in the comments section below.

    The ad just shows the iPad Mini on the ebook reader.
    Then the Windows tablet switching apps.

    What does that even show?

    It shows a stupid and lame company comparing it’s product with Apple’s legendary iPad… Did that answered your question?

    Apple needs to counter them with surface RT cant install common software with that empty windows store.

    It’s true that the comparison shown in the advertisement is less than sufficient to provide an equal overview of both tablets, but you have to see it from Microsofts POV. They do make billions of losses and the majority of people only care about the brand and don’t even consider alternative products….cus why? People will immediately recognize terms that start with an ‘i’, whereas 99% of all people will wonder what the hell a ‘Surface’ is. Kudos for Microsoft for at least trying to show some of the Surface’s superior features in an easy to understand advertisement.

    The more they diss Apple, the more iPads people buy.
