Microsoft Surface RT Tanks

As I've been shouting to the world since the middle of last June, the Surface just isn't a very good tablet. Now Digitimes claims that fewer than two million RT tablets shipped last quarter, and less than half of those were actually sold. Original expectations were for sales of more than four million of the confused halflings. The report continues:

The far below originally expected sales performance for Windows RT tablets is mainly because a large number of applications are not compatible with Windows RT and sales prices are relatively high, the sources said. Since Microsoft will ship the Windows 8-based Surface Pro soon, prices for Surface RT are likely to be lowered to clear inventories, the sources noted.

The Surface Pro works even worse as a tablet than the RT, and is priced to match high-end Ultrabook laptops.

Steve Ballmer has got to go before he destroys Microsoft.
