After comparing its Surface 2 with the Apple’s iPad Air and showing its better than the latter one, the new Surface RT ad takes on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, a tablet released by Samsung several months ago highlighting the connectivity options offered by the two devices.
The ad explains the Surface RT as a better device because it allows users to connect an external display, connect a drive to the full-size USB port and charge it, at the same time.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is portrayed as the sore loser due to its significantly limited hardware design.
The ad highlights how the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 can only connect to external displays and other devices through additional connectors as it does not sport a full-sized USB port, but rather a micro USB one that is only used for charging. With a micro USB port one will not be able to transfer documents and files from a flash drive or external hard drive.
Ironically, the Surface RT also requires an additional adapter to connect it to an external display this is openly said in the beginning of the ad. The ad also shows a No full-size USB? No thanks message.
Surface RT will be a good option for the customers who want to use the tablet as a laptop replacement because it has better connectivity options.
However the ad does not tackle other aspects of the tablet experience such as performance, build quality, software differences, apps and so on.
