According to the latest report from the IDC Microsoft may be doing better at selling Surface tablets than originally thought. Microsoft has still not given official sales numbers, but the IDC says that Microsoft shipped 900,000 Surface tablets during Q1 of this year. A very respectable number.
The IDC says that Surface Pro made up most of the 900,000 shipments. Surface RT. and WIndows RT in general, is not selling that great. These Q1 numbers put Microsoft into 5th place on the top vendors for tablet sales. Microsoft was only at 1.8% while Apple continued to dominate at nearly 40%. The numbers are starting to get better, but it’s a steep hill to climb.
How many of you have a Surface tablet? RT or Pro? Hopefully Microsoft can take this Q1 momentum and continue it into Q2. Do you think they can?
