Microsoft turns aim to Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in latest Microsoft Surface 2 ad

On the other hand, with the Microsoft Surface 2, you can recharge the phone, hook up a camera or a phone, and drink a glass of water all at the same time (and without moving your lips!).
If Microsoft keeps going after Apple and Samsung like this, it might be able to accomplish something that not even Dr. Henry Kissinger would be able to, getting the two biggest rivals in the industry to find a common enemy.

And...this is why so many of us are starting to hate Microsoft. Why explicitly bash other products, when you can improve your sales by making a decent product? Samsung and Apple got to where they are now without mocking competitors' devices in their ads.

Microsoft have't heard of OTG cables? I bet they don't support that.

Why do they need to support it when a normal USB just works?

I usually do not like commercials like this... but they do have a point... and I am against MHL for that same reason... For me, the advantages of getting the waterproof phone that I have, is that it comes with pins for a charger dock which frees the microUSB port to be used for something else (OTG, mouse, pendrives, etc) And it also has an additional microHDMI port... BUT now the tendencies are MHL, and SONY is even making the MHL port unaccessible when placed in a charging dock... so it makes it a lot more useless than my 2 y/o device... I which I could upgrade RAM and processor in my phone.

All microsoft needs right now is a mirror..... Please someone show them, how crappy is windows phone 8 ,RT os. Android and IOS are way better than that... Only thing that keeps this company going is its Windows for PC.. Now they are trying to compare surface pro with its android and ios competitors,,, please compare the battery backup 1st... Worst of all, u have completely doomed the fate of an awesome company like Nokia.... MICROSH°T is just pathetic......

I don't think a full sized USB port is as big of a deal breaker as they think.

It isnt, and I agree... But... It makes Surface tablets look more like computers vs other tablets. Love Android to death...but I have said since Surface was released...I would get that as my first tablet.

As to the adapter fine print 5 seconds in...To display on another monitor, you'll need just a cable (micro HDMI to HDMI cable or micro HDMI to DVI depending on monitor or tv). But you don't need an adapter to plug a camera with a proprietary cable to USB, into the Surface. You will need to lug around an adapter for that cable to be able to plug it into the Galaxy Tab. And to get the Galaxy to display on an external display, you need an actual adapter or multimedia dock, and then the HDMI cable. So, yeah, advantage goes to Surface for connecting external devices.
