Microsoft places ads for Surface tablet inside Grand Central Station
posted by Alan F. / Oct 03, 2012, 1:53 PM
Knowing New Yawkers (see how we did that) have a very low tolerance for anything that deters them from getting to point B from point A, many of them are going to walk right past the ad without giving it a second look. Others, though, are going to be intrigued. Microsoft has also put up ads in the Washington D.C. subway which should grab the attention of many commuters in the nation's capitol.
- Display 10.6" 1366 x 768 pixels
- Camera 1 megapixel
- Processor NVIDIA Tegra 3 T30, Quad-core, 1300 MHz
- Storage 32 GB

Lighten up Danny. Surely you know there is that perception out there? Notice he didn't say ALL or even MOST, he said MANY. If you are sensitive about the issue, then he clearly is not referring to you. Don't think the ad is intended to directly spur sales. More likely intended to increase brand knowledge. Let's face it, how many Non-Tech interested people even know Microsoft is even coming out with tablets?

New Yorkers, which actually notice everything, but chose not to respond to most, know they put the Surface ads in Grand Central Station because the giant, humongous, space hogging, venue dominating Apple Store is located there and they can barely stock enough iPads to keep pace with the customer flow. Microsoft wants a piece of that action.

Metro Style product advertised in a Metro environment, a very suitable pair.
