Check out the Windows Phone 7 Series ad

The first ad for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Series has hit the tubes of the Internet and it’s actually pretty good. It shows how the new operating system can handle the day-to-day wants and needs of people like me, you know, “life maximizers.”

All jabs aside, it’s a nice introduction to the software giant’s vision of its latest OS. However, I can’t help but notice some similarities to Palm’s latest ad campaign. Check out Palm’s video below and let us know what you think.

    Putting aside the inane “life maximizers” tag (MS ad people are SO behind the curve), the add is pretty good. I love the clean look of the OS. I have to say that the lady in red and Mos Def wins hands down, though, for originality and hotness.

    Microsoft is boring. It’s like comparing Oprah (Microsoft) and Beyonce (Palm).

    I go for the lady in red every day of the week no questions asked.

    “It’s like comparing Oprah (Microsoft) and Beyonce (Palm).”

    Don’t know about that one, Beyonce’s actually successful. I kid Palm, love their ad more.

    Mate, theres absolutely no relevance to the two videos, the only similarity is that they are touchscreen phones. The Palm ad is focused on a younger audience than the ‘life maximisers’.

    I really like the Palm ad for its simplicity though.
