New Microsoft Ad Makes Fun of the iPad

It turns out Microsoft can make interesting ads too. Like this one that pits a Windows 8 tablet — ASUS VivoTab Smart — against the Apple iPad.

As far as messaging goes, we will have to agree with Microsoft on this one. The iPad may be our preferred tablet for content consumption but when it comes a full-featured Windows 8 hybrid-PC running in tablet mode is just much more flexible with the things that you can do with it. So we’ll take the Windows 8 device over the iPad for a true all-rounder, do anything tablet.
