Microsoft made $853 million in revenue from the Surface and sold an estimated 1.7 million devices in eight months, according to GeekWire. That’s less than the $900 write-off the company took on the Surface two weeks ago.
Let’s put this in perspective:
- Apple sold 3 million iPads in three days last November
- Apple sold 14.6 million iPads in the last quarter
- Apple sold 57 million iPads since Microsoft began selling the Surface
Sucks to be Microsoft.
