Earlier today, Samsung released a new television ad for their Galaxy Tab Pro series. In the ad, the Korean company explained how its devices can do more than one task at a time. And as always, they also bashed the Apple iPad, Microsoft Surface and the Amazon Kindle.
There are four scenes in this ad, the first one compares the new Galaxy Tab Pro with the Apple iPad and shows how the former can run two apps simultaneously, while the other can’t. This feature of being able to run two apps side-by-side can actually be pretty useful.
In the next scene, three strangers are seen working on their tablets, two of them using Samsung Galaxy Tabs and one using the Microsoft Surface. The lady asks the guy with the Surface to move his laptop to which he responds, ‘This is actually a tablet’. When you have a separate keyboard, battery pack and a mouse attached to your tablet, it does look like a laptop.
The third scene involves a bunch of ladies sitting around and reading books on their tablets. When one of them uses their Galaxy Tab Pro to watch a video on YouTube, the lady with the Kindle reacts saying that she can’t do that with her Kindle. Finally, Samsung points out how their Galaxy Tab Pro has a higher resolution than the iPad. Notice how she uses the word Retina.
To be honest, this ad is really funny, unlike Samsung’s other attempts at dissing Apple. What did you think of this ad?
