New Windows Phone ad to air tonight features a wedding day fight between iOS and Android users

New Windows Phone ad to air tonight features a wedding day fight between iOS and Android users
Microsoft's new commercial for Windows Phone airs Monday night and our loyal readers are going to love it. It features a wedding where one side of the aisle is made up of Apple iPhone 5 users while the other side is using the Samsung Galaxy S III. One iPhone owner asks someone with the Samsung model to move his enormous phone. To a middle-aged woman holding an iPhone, someone asks, "Aren't you a little young to have an iPhone?" Ba-Zinga! Another woman says "Autocorrect this," and wallops a guy in the face. The battle is on.

As Android and iOS fans duke it out, a couple of wedding workers are standing apart from the melee. They are both clutching the Nokia Lumia 920, one in yellow and the other in red. The tag line of "Don't fight, switch" caps off the ad.

It's a brilliant move by Microsoft because it places Windows Phone as being above the fray. And with the ad clearly aimed at smartphone fanatics, perhaps there will be some switching taking place after all.

Ads won't help improve OS and apps!

All the downvotes are from people who are stuck on contract from Lumia phones xD. Don't worry Microsoft will drop support for you guys within a year when they release a "better" windows OS for phones.

On the contrary, look at the Galaxy - adds convinced people a tablet is a phone.

The key word in this video for Samsung's phones is "GALAXY", and they didnt mention the brand Samsung.
Samsung doesnt even give a rat's ass about windows phone they made one because other made one, and it's pretty obvious because they are not supporting their windows phones with more exclusive apps of their own and frequent updates.

^ Read comment #9 below.
This ad isnt really trying to make people switch directly, despite the big 'Switch' word in the ad. Im speaking from personal experience and im sure Microsoft is aware of the same thing.

If people are not aware of the product's existence, they wont go and try it out.

Nobody dominates forever! Even Apple are having a bad time of it lately by their standards

Nah, the next nexus will use a snapdragon 800 or tegra 4i from a company like Sony then after that they will make an intel powered nexus in 2014.

Lumia 920 was still one of the best 5 phones rated by Phonearena for smartphones of 2012.
Engadget is one of those few very reputable websites and i read their laptop and other gadget reviews. "Readers Choice" = voted by people, not by the editors of the website itself.

Engadget is the most biased website ever made. If I had enough money to fork up I can make an origami phone made of pure red construction paper get a GREAT review on Engadget.com.

Please....

That site indeed was, like, maybe a year ago - kissing Apple ass. No idea if you realized it but they 'overhauled' the site - besides removing the Disqus comments system, and changing design, some writers and editors are gotten rid of.

Srry, but a lack of choice when it comes to virtual keyboards just completely ruins a platform. Touch typing is already so non-intuitive anyway; it's only through keyboards like swiftkey/swype that people can finally get more than a line or two typed out properly on their smartphones.
