First Microsoft Surface ad goes live

Microsoft Surface is Microsoft's first big step into the tablet market and now with a matter of a week or so until it goes on sale, the Windows 8 tablet has had its TV debut

 

The long awaited Microsoft Surface Windows 8 tablet has made its TV and online debut in a commercial that plays on the flexibility of the magnetic keyboard.

The commercial, entitled “Movement” features dancing people throwing the Surface around whilst opening and closing the tablet flip stand and using the magnetic touch-cover in a crescendo of tablet created break-beat style music.

Microsoft’s Surface is the only tablet to come with a built in kick-stand and the magnetic cover will be available as a touch-cover or type-cover. The touch-cover incorporates a touch sensitive keyboard, whilst the type-cover includes a super slim-line full keyboard.

Surface goes on sale in the US at midnight on 26th October and recent adverts in Paris suggest that it may well be available on the same date in Europe. Microsoft have not yet released any details about availability outside the US and the price remains a mystery with the release in just over a week.

Gizmodo today featured adverts from Microsoft allowing consumers to pre-order the tablet however when the link was clicked it was dead, no doubt due to the advert being released early.
