New Microsoft Website Comparies iPads to Win8 Tablets

Windows vs iPad

Microsoft is hitting back at Apple more aggressively and has launched a new website directly comparing the iPad to Windows 8 Tablets including the SurfaceRT, ASUS VivoTab Smart, Dell XPS 10, and HP ENVY x2.

A number of direct comparisons are made including:
  • Thinness
  • Battery Life
  • Weight
  • Display Size
  • microSD and USB ports
  • Printing
  • Free cloud storage
  • Microsoft Office
  • Multiple Accounts
  • Using Multiple Apps
  • Price

It’s a great to see Microsoft starting to being more proactive with comparing its superior Windows 8 tablets to the iPads.  However, the OEMs clearly need to step up their game.

    iPad vs Windows it’s a nonsense (expression).
    How we do evaluate it? JavaScript Style or C++ style?
    We use == or ===?

    iPad vs Surface or iOS vs Windows I can…

      Think of it this way, the average consumer is too stupid to realize that the iPad runs iOS, and therefore iPad and iOS are synonymous in their minds. So it is easier to compare “iPad vs Windows”.

        Correct, so stupid they don’t even bother making a distinction from the things anymore they just call them all iPads…
