Microsoft Takes on the iPad Mini in New Commercial

Microsoft Takes on the iPad Mini in New Commercial

One of the shorter, or should I say more mini, commercials put together in the Microsoft-powered tablet versus iPad series, has just been released. In the commercial Microsoft pits the reported lackluster Acer Iconia W3 against the iPad Mini. Paul Thurrott recently reviewed the Acer mini tablet, and though he couldn't recommend it, he decided it was a good first start at a smaller Windows-based tablet.

In short (or mini), the commercial continues to evolve Microsoft's message that Apple's tablets are good for a couple things, while Windows-powered tablets are full computing devices, allowing owners to mix work with pleasure if they choose to do so.
