Surface sales weak so far

Microsoft Corp. has sold about 1.5 million Surface devices, people with knowledge of the company’s sales said, a slow start in its bid to crack the fast-growing tablet market to make up for slumping personal-computer demand.

A stunning surprise. Not.

    Given the expectations, 1.5 million is certainly more than I thought they would sell. I am assume that’s both models?

      According to the article: “Microsoft has sold little more than a million of the Surface RT version and about 400,000 Surface Pros since their debuts”

      I wonder what the return rate was?

    At least it’s selling better than the BlackBerry PlayBook which has sold about 2 million units since it was released in 2011.
