Microsoft's First Windows 8 Ad Comes With Sneak Peeks At New Windows Hardware

Windows 8 is weeks away, and to hype us up to fever pitch, Microsoft has released the first ad for the new operating system, filled with random imagery and brief sneak peeks.

Here’s what you need to know: Eight is a number you need to hear repeated over and over, Fruit Ninja is awesome, rockets blasting off are cool, loud rock music is happening and shouting at your computer is the new black.


Seriously, though. Dispersed within the random stock footage is some genuinely interesting stuff. Sneak peeks, even. Convertible Samsung tablets the likes of which we’ve never seen before, a massive Acer tablet, and the first look at Sony’s new touchscreen laptop. The screenshots for your consideration can be browsed above.

All of this culminates in the tagline: “Windows Reimagined”.

I’ve gotta say, I’m pretty excited for Windows 8. Is it just me?
