Here’s Microsoft’s Take On The Apple/Android Fanboy Wars

Android fans love to talk trash about Apple fans and vice versa. Unfortunately, we only ever see this conflict from those directly involved. Is there not an outside voice that can give us an unbiased look at just how silly they look?

Well, no, but Microsoft tried its hardest in the latest Windows Phone ad. The Nokia Lumia 920 is on display in this latest ad that pitches the fervent fans of Apple and Samsung against each other at a wedding. Insults are thrown, cake is ruined and a scared middle-aged man desperately asks Siri for help in learning karate.

It looks like Microsoft is finally starting to figure this whole advertisement thing out. Its earlier ads were at best inane and at worst irrelevant. In short, Microsoft should make more ads like the above and less ads with terrible dance dancing.

    I wonder if they’ll ever get smart enough to make phones with a hardware keyboard.

    Android, especially Samsung, figured out they can gain about 30-35% of the market with that single feature. Then if they split the rest of the market 50/50, they end up with 2/3rds of the market.

    Excellent ad! Hopefully they will make more ads like this, most importantly they will up their game with their own smartphone offering and operating system!
