It was just yesterday that Microsoft decided to treat us to a video in which the company’s Surface 2 tablet was compared against the likes of the iPad Air. This was shortly after Microsoft’s latest Scroogled campaign and also shortly after Nokia released a video of their Lumia 2520 that poked fun at the iPad Air as well. In any case it looks like Microsoft is back again and this time they’re basically taking the same ad but are comparing it against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, a tablet released by Samsung several months ago.

The argument Microsoft made is the same as the one they made with the iPad Air, which is basically highlighting how the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 does not sport a full-sized USB port, but rather a micro USB one that is only used for charging. Granted for productivity reasons, having a full-sized USB port means you will be able to transfer documents and files from a flash drive or external hard drive, but in today’s day and age, cloud storage is a way we can retrieve files from one location on multiple devices, unless of course internet is not available which could pose a problem then, but what do you guys think? Is the lack of a full-sized USB port a valid argument?
