An analyst from the company R.W. Baird announced that he has had a conversation with representatives of retail chains that are offering tablets, such as Best Buy and Staples. They told him that they will push the iPad for the holidays, and shall recommend it as an alternative to Amazon's Kindle or one of Samsung's Galaxy tabs. The reps also told him that the Google Nexus 10 was also doing fine, but the Microsoft Surface was practically forgotten.

Further analysis of Surface sales

microsoft surface

Microsoft proudly unveiled Surface tablets during the launch of the new Windows, even though many said that the release of devices with a completely different processor architecture (ARM) was a very risky move. Although the team from Redmond repeatedly declared that they are satisfied with its initial sales, the two figures released so far appear at odds; Microsoft’s figure of 4 million tablets planned for the 4th quarter is now reduced to 2 million. Now a brokerage firm, Detwiler Fenton, that allocates brokerage ranks, said that Microsoft should be happy if they manage to sell 1 million tablets by the end of the year. Detwiler says that Microsoft has sold between 500 and 600 thousand units so far.

Microsoft sued because of Surface Memory Capacity

surface

Even before the arrival to the market it was known that a big part of the internal flash memory of Surface is reserved for Windows alone and applications that come preloaded on the device. Thus, a 32-gigabyte version has only about 16 GB of free space for user data. That was reason enough for California Attorney General Andrew Sokolowski to sue Microsoft. In fact, he bought the Surface (RT) with 32 gigabytes of internal memory, but the internal memory got filled very fast with music and documents and then he realized that he actually has only half the space than he thought it should have.
