AppleInsider reports that Microsoft has just released another video bashing Appleâ€™s iPad and comparing it unfavourably with Microsoft's Surface RT tablet. This is the second such video this week, with the first focusing on Siri, and this one showing the two tablets in a side-by-side comparison, with the Surface coming out more favourably, you won't be surprised to hear! For example, the ad shows that the Surface RT has a bigger display panel, and a 16:9 aspect ratio, in comparison to the iPadâ€™s 4:3 aspect ratio, but, as AppleInsider points out, it neglects to mention that the iPadâ€™s resolution is superior to that of the Surface RT. The video also highlights the fact that the Surface RT has a built-in kickstand and attachable keyboard, unlike the iPad, although the Surface RTâ€™s keyboard is sold separately, and costs $100, with the price not being mentioned in the ad. As far as software is concerned, Microsoft highlights the fact that the Surface RT comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office (a factor which leads many to think that the iPad will never get its own version of Office, with this being one of the Surface tab's main selling point). Among other comparisons in the video are the price, with the Surface RT being cheaper, of course, and the fact that the Microsoft tablet has a USB port, which the iPad does not have.
