Latest Microsoft campaign calls Samsung Galaxy S4 a waste of money

Microsoft has just posted another ad comparing the Samsung Galaxy S4 with a Nokia Lumia 521 and all the goodies you can get for the $600 difference between the unlocked prices of the handsets.

With the SGS4 costing $750 off contract, and the Nokia Lumia 521 only $150, that leaves $600, which Ben spends on a memory card, headphones, a year of Xbox Music and ASUS VivoBook X202E touchscreen laptop.

Of course in the US market the real cost and value of a handset is largely hidden, and I suspect the ad will attract quite a bit of ridicule, but of course in other locations where handsets are routinely purchased unlocked, this kind of value comparison makes a lot of sense.
