Microsoft Surface Pro Receives Catwalk Treatment And New TV Ad
The Verge is reporting that Microsoft is set to unveil a new Surface Pro commercial at tonight’s Grammy awards. In addition, a YouTube video shows Microsoft’s Panos Panay took the Microsoft Surface Pro for a spin on the catwalk.
Microsoft appears to be aware of the launch issues, noting that it’s working with retailers “to replenish supplies as quickly as possible.” The company isn’t providing exact sales numbers, much like its Surface RT launch, but it has previously indicated it will reveal numbers once Surface is more broadly distributed. A lack of retail presence and supply issues appeared to affect the original Surface RT launch over the holidays, so it’s clear Microsoft still has some work to do to ensure it can improve supply.
There have been lots of chatter about Microsoft is enjoying an Apple-like launch for their Micosoft Surface Pro. However, I’m going with John Gruber, who recently stated that Microsoft needs to release weekend sales figures to make these claims legit.
