Microsoft reveals first Surface tablet ad Just hours after revealing their first Windows 8 commercial, the company has released their first Surface tablet commercial, as well.
The software giant played the ad during the first quarter of tonight's Monday Night Football game between San Diego and Denver.

As reported, Windows 8, RT and Windows Phone 8 are expected to cost $1.8 billion in marketing.

The commercial mainly showcases the magnetic keyboard that was the highlight of Microsoft's Surface unveiling over the summer.

The cheaper ones (RT) are using Arm processors, these are not designed to run full windows. The expensive ones are running processors such as Intel and are more powerful and more expensive to build. There is a genuine difference, it is not just because they want to.

While on the "Surface" they may appear the same but one cannot run apps don't believe this to be the case.
