In a newly released advertisement, Microsoft takes a small swing at the Samsung Galaxy Tab. And, for good reason. Those Galaxy Tab owners know how frustrating it is to be constrained to a single port for charging and connecting. The Samsung Galaxy Tab only offers one mini USB port that is provided for both power and a USB connection. And, not just that, but additional cables have to be purchased to accommodate both functions.
Microsoft gets it right in this latest ad, and is the third ad of its type where Microsoft shows off the Surface features and then proves why the feature make sense – at the expense of a poorly designed competitor.
