Drawings of Microsoft Surface tablets start appearing on walls across New York City
Two months after announcing them officially, Microsoft has now started actively promoting its Surface tablets. Graffiti reminding people of the company's upcoming Windows 8 powered slates have started popping up on walls throughout New York City, with photos of at least two of them posted by locals on the internet.

Isn't it a bit too early for Redmond to start advertising the tablets, however? After all, neither of the Microsoft Surface models is expected to be released earlier than late October, alongside Windows 8 itself. That is over two months away from now. On the other hand, the company might have prepared a rather aggressive marketing campaign for its two upcoming tablets. Competition on the tablet market will be tough, and if Microsoft really wants to get a piece of the market share pie, it better make sure that the public is well familiar with its offerings.

What do you, guys, think of Microsoft's marketing campaign? Could it have been a bit more original, or would you rather say that it is a good start? Let us know what you think by dropping a comment!

I'm pretty excited for this actually. I mean I've been waiting for a good tablet for doing projects and stuff in school, and I think this might do the trick.

Folks all this is cute but Microsoft really has to step up to the plate and score home runs as far as advertising their Mobile products is concerned.. Microsoft's Windows 8 smart phones for instance now have an new OS better than the current Windows 7 smart phones and also have dual core CPU's, Hd ,screens,NFC and other Electronic components in them to that make them competitive with Android or Apple Iphones. The New Windows RT tablets coming out this October comes loaded with a special version of Microsoft office that make it useful right out of the box. it's main weakness is it's new OS needs Apps. but it can still serf the web and do Email, and get internet based entertainment, read ebooks,and help a person purchase stuff over the Enternet so that this Tablets wont be use less or dead on Arrival unless it is priced too high.. I wish Microsoft luck. I want an intel x86 Windows 8 Tablet because they are a Tablet PC a device much more powerful than an Ipad or any other Tablet Computer out there because they can run full Windows Desktop/Laptop programs and there are thousnad upon thousands of them out there to choose from.
