One of the biggest problems facing the Microsoft Surface RT is the fact that there are only two ways to obtain one. Currently they can be bought at Microsoft retail stores, or if you’re unlucky enough to not live near one of these locations, then you can purchase one online. However, it seems as though Microsoft may give up the Surface exclusivity for its Microsoft Stores by putting it in more retail locations like Best Buy or even Walmart.
Wider availability during the holiday season means more people will be exposed to the Surface, which is always a good thing. Of course, this may have been Microsoft’s plan all along and it’s only now being sped up due to the tepid sales of the Surface RT. Do you think more exposure among retail locations will help the Surface sell better?
