First Windows 8 commercial is out, just the tip of the iceberg

First Windows 8 commercial is out, just the tip of the iceberg
Microsoft is planning on spending a huge amount of money in their marketing of the new Windows 8 operating system. The first ad has made its appearance. 

The ad features the touch friendliness of the OS, along with a family appeal as well. We catch a glimpse of a tablet being affixed to a keyboard and the rest is what one might expect. These ads will appear ahead of the October 26 launch of Windows 8. “Windows reimagined” is the new tagline.

We can expect a big retail push as well by Microsoft to begin selling Windows 8 PCs and tablets that weekend of the 26th. Given the amount of money set-aside for this campaign, we can also expect that Microsoft and Windows will be at every turn as we head into the holidays.

Immediately after the Windows 8 release, the following Monday, October 29th, Microsoft will unveil Windows Phone 8 officially in San Francisco, California.  We are ready!
