Well, that didn’t take long at all. Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet has come under fire from many consumers for what they believe is falsely advertising the disk space available on the tablet. The above graph is a Microsoft provided graph that shows the breakdown of where the space goes on its Surface model, but this explanation isn’t enough for one attorney. Andrew Sokolowski had filed a class-action lawsuit against Microsoft, claiming that the Redmond giant lied about the amount of storage space available in its tablets.
The claim is that Microsoft misled consumers and falsely advertised the storage capacity for its tablets by knowingly withholding the amount of space taken up by the operating system from its advertisements. The case was filed in the California State Court yesterday and there’s no word on whether or not it has been approved for class action status. Still, what do our readers think? Were you misled about the amount of space available on your Surface?
