Video: Comparing Surface Tablet with iPad
Great video created by Read Write Web. Illustration by ObamaPacman, made using parts of the video.
Surely Microsoft did not copy Apple. Some major differences:
- Microsoft Surface tablet crashed upon first demo, while the presenter read “I can browse smoothly” off the teleprompter, both Internet Explorer and the tablet’s Windows home button stopped responding. At least the crashes are consistent with the Microsoft MyFord Touch
- Surface has heat vents, iPad doesn’t need them
- No battery life numbers, iPad has 10 hour battery
- Apple announces price and ship date, Surface kept it vague
The video should have added comparison of:
- Compare the iPad smart cover
- Steve Jobs saying “we’re getting started”
- Jeans and sneakers of Microsoft employees. What’s next, black turtleneck?
