Microsoft Surface ad airs ahead of launch

The Windows 8 launch is just ten days away and Microsoft has already aired its first advertisement for its Surface tablet.

Called “The Surface Movement”, the colorful ad revolves around the clicking sound the Surface makes from its kickstand or when connected to its magnetic keyboard. Personally, I find the sound really satisfying. The rest feels like a sponsored trailer for the next ‘Step Up’ movie. Watch the video below and see for yourself.

The Surface ad is part of Microsoft’s billion dollar marketing campaign for Windows 8 which will be released on October 26. Judging from its marketing stance, Microsoft really wants to make a killing on the Surface and its upcoming OS.

  2. Nice ad!

  3. Awesome!

  4. i’d rather but an android tablet because it has all the features I need in a compact device. better user interface and thousands of apps and widgets.
    if you already have a laptop and a desktop I advice you not buy this(especially if you main purpose is to use microsoft office)
    *microsoft will be available for other OS next march 2013

    • I agree with you on some points, but i’d rather have the security, simplicity, and compatibility of the Windows ecosystem specially for “Working people” like me.

    • Try to grow up and be productive rather than staying in the basement playing toys.

    • @Jason Hijo, wag basta padala sa emosyon ha? Merong Surface RT and Surface Pro. The latter would work like any desktop or laptop. So kung ikaw kontento na sa mga padownload-download ng apps sa marketplace, di ka naman pinipilit bumili nito. Pero kunwari, gusto mong maginstall ng adobe photoshop or lan games sa tablet, pwede yan sa Surface Pro. Pwede rin ba yan sa android? :D

    • I loled so hard, it’s like comparing iOS apps to Mac/PC Software.

      In my own opinion Microsoft Surface is what the 3rd category between smartphone and laptop, it’s not the iPad.

    • sushirobot

      wow, fanboy. eh di wag ka bumili. haha.

  5. Pricing!?!?!?!

  6. Wow! This is great! Sounds like i’m getting rid of my laggy droid tablet…

  7. benchmark

    parang maganda yang tablet ha….for sure mahal yan….sana medyo medyo lang… :)

  8. sana medyo mura..! shet ang ganda ng tablet

  9. pang usa lang ata ito ibebenta

  10. o nga, sana medyo… medyo mura hehehe
    gusto ko ng portability ng tablet at productivity softwares ng microsoft. eto na yata ang sagot. kaso mukhang malalagot ang bulsa hehehe

  11. hindi naman siguro kasing mahal ng pricing ng apple yan :)

  12. Tantrums_cute

    wow… galing…
    yun nga lang may galaxy tab na ako…

    wait ko din un MS Office for Android…

  13. Tantrums_cute

    ung Surface may kasama nang keyboard…?

    ung Galaxy Tab ko, d pa ako nakakabili ng keyboard nun… san ba meron… at ung mga usb connection kit…

  14. Nice Microsoft Surface Tablet/Computer… A tablet with a Windows 8 OS… Meaning table na pwede installan ng AutoCAD, Photoshop, Corel Draw, at kung ano ano pang PC softwares and PC games… Kaya ba yan ng iOS and Android Tablets? Pano na ang irerelease daw na Tablet ng Nokia? Sobrang late na… For sure it will run in Microsoft OS.

  15. This is the REAL tablet I’m waiting for….

  16. gotta have this one and bye bye to my ipad =)

  17. Berkanoshow

    499 USD 32 GB versus 16 GB ipad (retina)
    599 USD 32 GB with the cool magnetic keyboard cover
    699 USD 64 GB with the cool magnetic keyboard cover

    any takers?

    • YUP!! nice price,for its build but not to the app, maybe after months

  18. SpiderWak

    The price is still kept a secret.. I hope it won’t be the cause of disappointment.

  19. Pricing has been revealed………. It’s HIGHER than what we were expecting..

  20. I just wish if i buy a fully licensed photoshop or ms office on this tab i wouldnt need to repurchase again on my win8 desktop or vice versa, i really think microsoft is trying to lessen if not eliminate software piracy on their new OS.

    • photoshop and autocad won’t run on Windows RT. If you plan on installing desktop applications, wait for the Surface Pro.

  21. This would be awesome for designs students and also designers! Sana may high-speced version na kayang magrun ng 3d modeling programs in the future!

  22. I would love to have this but just bought a Samsung Tab recently. ICS is a little laggy but heard that they have plans to upgrade to Jelly Bean.

    As for the Surface, the best thing to do is to read a lot of reviews, future updates, and wait. As the old adage says, “True love comes to those who wait”.lolz

  23. where to buy it in the philippines?

  24. I every time spent my half an hour to read this web site’s posts every day along with a mug of coffee.

  25. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good.
    I do not know who you are but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t
    already ;) Cheers!
