Video: First Microsoft Surface tablet ad

Microsoft’s marketing campaign for its upcoming Surface tablet kicks off tonight with its first ad to air on U.S. national TV. Microsoft is rumoured to be spending over US$1 billion to hype Windows 8, Window RT, and its first tablet device.

The ad itself reveals little about the tablet. It focuses instead on the kickstand and magnetic keyboard and the sounds made by these.

The Microsoft Surface will go on sale on October 26th for a still undisclosed price. It will be available at Microsoft stores as well as its new pop-up Holiday Stores (including four in Canada).
