Microsoft Surface Tablet a Failed Product?

By Mahesh Chand Nov 30, 2012
At least for now now based on the results so far. Windows 8 and Surface Tablet has not done so well.
Earlier this week, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that the sales of Windows 8 has a terrific start. As a matter of fact, he said, Windows 8 is selling better than any other versions of Windows operating system and sold 40 million copies in a month.

But some analysts are saying otherwise.

In a yahoo news published today reported several bad news for Microsoft. The story is reporting that between 10/21 and 11/17, the PC sales dropped 21% and Surface Tablet sales during the same period are just 1% of all Windows 8 sales.

Story also included that Asus CFO commented that Windows 8 demand is not good at all and Microsoft has cut its order of Surface Tablets for the year to 2 million, down from 4 million.

As some reviewers are saying, the Surface Tablet is a premature product and Microsoft may have rushed it to get ready for the holiday season. I have already returned my Surface. Do you want to know the reason? Here is why >
