Microsoft has released its first ad targeting the iPad mini, by comparing the Acer Iconia W3 Windows 8 tablet versus the iPad mini. Again, this commercial sticks to a previous theme of using Siri’s own voice to detail its own ‘shortcomings’ compared to the Windows 8 tablet.

The competition just got smaller. See how the Acer Iconia W3 stacks up against the iPad Mini.

Check it out below:

Just yesterday, Microsoft released an ad comparing the iPad to the Surface RT, which the company recently took a $900 million write down on  (and slashed the price) due to excess inventory.

    I give them credit for finally attempting to show people why they should buy their over marketed, underperforming, iPad (legally) knockoff … But, sadly, as the cliche says — too little; too late.

    I like these ads. Just like the Mac vs PC that apple used to do. Now it’s Microsofts turn to play catch-up.

    Also, you need to change the name of the site to iOSincanada, I don’t bother checking ipadincanada anymore because you post all the relevant info on this site.
