Nokia Releases Lumia 2520 Ad - Video





Nokia has released a new ad for its most recent tablet running Windows 8 - Lumia 2520. To be honest, the gadget looks pretty much the same as Windows Surface, but, unlike the Microsoft’s creation, features a separate physical keyboard equipped with a powerful battery that lets the tablet work for as many as 16 hours on a single charge. Impressive, don’t you think so?

Apple to Offer Surface-Style Keyboard Cover for iPad?



Jamie Ryan, Apple’s former employee, says there’s a Surface-style keyboard cover in the works. Ryan has reportedly been speaking to some people at the company, who shared with him the information about prototypes.

It’s not clear whether the process is far enough along to make this Tuesdays event but they did say a few different styles had been in testing for a while. This would certainly allow Apple to differentiate the larger iPad from its little brother and market it as the more ’pro’ of the 2. Apple already sells a Bluetooth keyboard that functions perfectly with the iPad but it’s not quite as integrated as Microsofts offering, requiring a lot more bag space.

It is interesting whether Apple will show us the new iPad case on Tuesday or not.

New 'Anti-iPhone' Nokia Lumia 1020 Ad



Microsoft has posted a new video on its Windows Phone YouTube channel. As usual, it’s a short clip that mocks the iPhone 5’s photo sensor and claims that the Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41-megapixel camera with six physical lenses is a lot better, which is quite obvious even without watching the ad.

Here’s the description of the clip:

A kids's play is one of those times when you want to get the perfect shot. But most phones aren't capable of capturing quality photos at a distance. Even if it's just a few rows back. With the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 1020 you get 41 megapixels so every seat is the best seat in the house.

You may watch the ad below. What do you think about it?

Another iPad vs Microsoft Surface Ad



Another Microsoft ad comparing iPad with a Surface RT tablet was released yesterday on the company’s official YouTube channel.

This time we can see a Windows RT tablet and an iPad 4. Microsoft ad-makers claim that their device is surely better than the Apple gadget. Well, as usual, they show how the multitasking works, how to connect a USB flash drive to the Windows RT tablet and how the prices for both devices differ. Boring...

Microsoft is abasing iPad. Again [video]



Microsoft has launched an ad attacking Apple. Or should be say launched again? It is not the first time Microsoft is  comparing its devices with iPad. The ad always claims Microsoft products to be much cooler. They feature exactly the specifics iPad lacks. For example, a built-in back stand, USB port, and keyboard accessory. All of these accessories are options on the iPad, though it still can be considered a disadvantage. Are they really? The price for such an ad is quite high to pay. It was announced that Microsoft lost 900 million dollars in the last quarter due to Surface discount.

Another interesting feature is that in all ads of such type the Voiceover says,”This isn’t going to end well for me, is it? Nope definitely not ending well.”  However, financial research shows that it is the Surface which is likely to be in trouble rather than Apple’s iPad.
