Talk about sweet irony. Oprah Winfrey, the most famous talk show host in the world already expressed how much she loves the Microsoft Surface tablet when she included the device on her ‘Favorite Things’ gift list for 2012.

Showing her love to the Twitter population, Oprah then posted a message saying how much she loved the Microsoft tablet. Using an iPad, of all things:

“Gotta say love that SURFACE! Have bought 12 already for Christmas gifts. #FavoriteThings.”

Ouch. While the Twitter website does not reveal the platform used to send a tweet, but a lot of third-party clients (including the iPad and iPhone apps) shows that. This was something that caught the eyes of the editors over at Eagle eyes, there, fellas!

This interesting twist aside, the Surface seems to have picking up pace as the holiday season approaches.

Microsoft has already included the device in its Black Friday deals (available on Microsoft Stores) later this week, giving an opportunity to shoppers to either get a Surface sleeve as free gift or save $50 on a second Touch Cover.

Throw in discount deals from other retailers, and the Surface could very well turn out to be one of the most in demand technology devices of the holiday season.
