Surface Sales: Even Worse Than We Thought

December 6th, 2012 - 5:04 am


While some see potential in Microsoft’s Surface tablet, most industry watchers appear to have written off the device at this point. Orders were reportedly cut in half following a slow launch, and Microsoft’s (MSFT) debut slate has been hammered time and time again by reviewers and analysts. The latest to pile on is Boston-based brokerage firm Detwiler Fenton, which estimates that when all is said and done, Microsoft will have sold fewer than 1 million Surface tablets in the slate’s debut quarter.

Apple sold 300,000 iPads on the very first day — and that was almost three years ago, when the tablet market simply didn’t exist until Apple conjured it up.
