New Commercial for MS Surface Tablet is Long on Pretty but Short on Details

Do you remember how iPad commercials usually show you the many cool things you can do with one? It looks like Microsoft has chosen a different approach with their new Surface tablet.

The new commercial focuses not on what you can do with the tablet, but on the cool snap on cover and keyboard. You know, the one which was copied from the iPad and then improved

(Microsoft “Jobsed” the iPad’s smartcover). This entire commercial is one long fancy dance routine. If getting a Surface tablet will enable me to dance like this then it is definitely worth the money.

The Surface tablet is expected to be in the hands of consumers by the 26th of October. It is already listed on the Microsft Store website with prices starting at $500.
