New Microsoft Windows 8 tablet ad pokes fun at Apple’s iPad


Microsoft has released a new Windows 8 tablet ad featuring the ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet, which pokes fun at Apple’s iPad.

The ad titled “Less talking, more doing” makes use of Siri voiceover to highlight some of the shortcomings of the iPad by pointing out Windows 8 features that are not available on the iPad such as live titles where information is dynamically updated, support for multiple windows at once and Microsoft Office products such as PowerPoint.

The ad then goes on to say that “Should we just play chopsticks,” and shows the Garageband app, which seems like a dig at Apple’s iPad and iPad mini ad that have featured the app. Meanwhile, the Windows 8 tablet is shown updating the live titles.

The ad ends by highlighting the price difference between the iPad, which costs $699 (64GB) and a 64GB ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet, which costs $499.
