Following a recent partnership with CNN, Microsoft supplied the cable station with a handful of its new Surface Pro 3 tablets for the TV people to use. As a result, users who had tuned in to CNN’s live election coverage yesterday evening, might have noticed that all the commentators were using the new tablets given to them by Microsoft. Well, it turns out some of these commentators were just using the Surface tablets to hide their iPads (via GeekWire).
As you can see above, a CNN commentator discussing the 2014 US mid-term elections is caught using the Surface Pro 3 as a mere kickstand for the iPad.
Previously, Microsoft had to deal with NFL announcers who kept referring to the Surface tablets as iPad-like tools. Now it seems that Microsoft needs to do some coaching with the political talking-heads as well.
What do you say about this one guys?
