Surface RT Sales On The Rise

/ 6 years ago


WinRT Source has been trying to figure out whether Microsoft’s recent price cuts have boosted sales. After asking several stores across the USA whether the price cuts have boosted sales, they say 100% of the 20 stores asked said that they had increased sales. It is not surprising as Microsoft has knocked around $150 off the top Surface RT models and offered significant discounts to students and educational establishments all across the world.

Speculation had suggested that Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer had said internally that sales of the Surface RT were not good enough. In fact Microsoft even took a huge $900 million loss not that long ago on Surface RT inventories as they simply had too much in terms of unsold stock and were charged $900 million as a result – probably by the OEM producer for not selling enough or meeting sales forecasts.

Have you picked up a Surface RT recently? If so what do you think of it?
