Microsoft has released a new Windows 8 tablet ad, called entitled “Less Talking, More Doing”, that uses Siri to highlight a few of the iPad’s shortcomings, depicting the ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet as a robust productivity machine while implying that the iPad is more suited to entertainment. In the above ad you will see an iPad next to the VivoTab Smart showing off the system’s multitasking capabilities and its built-in office apps. Siri tells that the iPad does not support multiple windows at once and does not offer Microsoft Office apps. “I’m sorry, I can only do one thing at a time,” Siri laments. “I guess PowerPoint isn’t one of those things.”
The ad also focuses on the price difference, with the 64GB WiFi iPad being $699 and the 64GB VivoTab Smart just $449.
