Microsoft has been using the soft approach lately when trying to help promote and sell its Surface 2 tablets; last week, the company released a video that showed how a cupcake maker used the Windows RT device. This week, that trend continues as we see the Surface 2 being used by a professional wedding planner.
The Surface blog, and the new YouTube video, show how Ashlee Voda, a wedding planner based in Austin Texas, uses the Surface 2 for her needs. That includes typing data in an Excel spreadsheet while interviewing a happy couple, and then jumping quickly into Internet Explorer to show off pictures to that same pair.
The video also shows Ashlee taking pictures of a wedding cake with the Surface 2, writing notes in the OneNote app and even taking images of a possible wedding location and then marking some design changes with the display and a stylus.
All in all, this new way to help sell the Surface 2 to a non-tech savvy audience seems to be a step in the right direction. However, as we saw earlier today, Microsoft still can go into full attack mode in trying to compare its products with rivals like the iPad.
