The tablet Microsoft Windows 8, Surface, is a failure, this time it is clear. At least one financial failure. In a document exchange, Microsoft reveals that revenues from its shelves Surface RT and Surface Pro since their launch until late June, are $ 853 million.
The volumes are not disclosed but the company recently announced a price reduction of 30% RT Area to recover sales, leading to a depreciation of stocks of 900 million … more than the total revenue earned to date.
Results far from the expectations of Microsoft, who admitted having made too many units, and huge budget communication made to the launch of Windows 8.
