In a new Surface blog post, Microsoft is showcasing how it convinced a 12 year old girl to purchase a Surface instead of an iPad mini. “Recently we had a father tweet us a presentation that his 12 year old daughter created describing why she should get an iPad mini. He challenged both Surface and Samsung to take turns in a rebuttal, we gladly accepted the challenge,” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
It all started when the girl’s father sent out a tweet showcasing a poster board the girl had made as to why she should get an iPad mini. Her father tweeted the picture and CC’ed Microsoft and Samsung emphasizing “your move” in an attempt to illicit a response from the Redmond giant.
Microsoft eventually responded with a picture of their own poster board showcasing why the girl should get a Surface instead. Afterwards, the girl and her father visited a Microsoft Store and tested out Surface and ended up selecting a Surface 2 and Purple Type Cover 2. Take a look at the video below.
