CNN Discovers Promotional Surface Pros Make Fantastic iPad Stands

By Eric Limer on at

Last night over on US news channel CNN, they weren't just covering the presidential mid-term elections. It was also a showcase for the Surface Pro 3, conspicuously placing a kickstand-bound unit in front of its commentators. The catch? They were actually just being used as iPad stands.

As GeekWire points out, a few eagle-eyed viewers pointed out that behind every Surface Pro 3, there's an iPad running the show.

This comes on the heels of NFL commentators calling Microsoft's Surface an iPad and "iPad-like" after a 400-million-dollar deal to do exactly not that.

Still, at least it's making a solid case for kickstands. [Geekwire via 9to5Mac]
