Oh Snap! Microsoft Continues Surface Assault on iPad

Fresh off their $900 million dollar write-down of the Surface RT, Microsoft has released yet another ad pitting the Surface against the iPad. With Siri handling the dialogue, the focus is on features only available on the Surface. Microsoft highlights the kickstand, USB port for gaining access to images and the snap-on keyboard.

Microsoft Surface vs iPad

These are all features easily added to the iPad. The Logitech Ultra-thin keyboard cover adds a high quality keyboard that we loved. Apple’s own smart cover allows you to stand your iPad. If you are looking to add photos directly to your iPad, this camera connection kit will do the trick.

This ad also features the new lower price for the Surface. Now priced at $349, $150 less than the launch price, these are not exactly flying off the shelf. Oh Snap indeed.
