Microsoft Creates Funny but Misleading Video Ad Campaign Comparing Dell Tablet to iPad

20130807we-microsoft-tablet-apple-ipad-comparison

In the video below (source), Microsoft compares their tablet platform to the Apple iPad. Some of the essential details about the two devices are left out.

The most misleading part of the video is the representation that an iPad is unable to read from an SD media card to import photos. In fact, there is an adapter that allows the iPad to import photos from a USB device, camera, or SD card. This is only clarified on the Microsoft tablet comparison web page.

There’s a series of videos from Microsoft about their tablet platform making similar comparisons with the iPad. In one video, it’s implied that there’s no external keyboard option for the iPad. That’s simply not true.

Since the Microsoft tablet platform has a lot to offer, it’s a shame that Microsoft feels they need to make misrepresentations when comparing to their competition.
