New Windows 8 ad featuring Acer Iconia W3 now pokes fun at iPad mini

Microsoft has released a new Windows 8 ad featuring 8-inch Acer Iconia W3, this time taking a dig at Apple’s iPad mini.

This is just hours after releasing a new Surface RT ad, which poked fun at the iPad (again).

The new Acer Iconia W3 vs. iPad Mini ad makes use of Siri’s voiceover to highlight some of the shortcomings on the iPad mini compared to Acer Iconia W3 such as the unavailability of games like Halo and Microsoft Office with voiceover saying “Wow, you’re a real PC”.

It ends by highlighting the price difference between 32GB iPad mini, which is available for $429 and the 32GB Iconia W3, which is available for just $299 with the voiceover saying “Let’s just go back to reading. Actually, don’t read that.”

Check out the ad below and let us know what you think in the comments.
