Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Ballmer: Surface RT sales

Via engadget: http://www.engadget.com/2012/11/11/ballmer-says-microsoft-surface-sales-off-to-modest-start/

 

So what does this mean? It seems that the massive, record breaking lines where just isolated incidents. I have a feeling that they probably underperformed in the sales department.

Does the Pro model has a chance to rectify things, or other vendors will save the Windos 8 tablet market?

Withdrew my choice to buy RT when I found out that their cost to produce-RRP are 53% appart. The highest out of all tablets. Even Apple's.

Will wait for a gen 2.

Yay!!!

Reported.

OT

I will move from my iPad when the better tablets from Windows8 hit the market.  

There is no doubt Windows8 on tablets will be a success.  Zero doubt and zero chance it wont be massive.

Its the prime period of the year to launch a new device, it had one of the biggest marketing pushes ever, yet sales are still modest.

You trully bealive thyat other manufacturers entering and a more expensive device will make it an inbstant boom?

I for one, am sceptical.
