Microsoft Surface RT suffering from poor availability

Posted on Monday, December 10 2012 @ 13:19:53 CET by

All Things D reports demand for Microsoft's Surface RT tablet is much lower than anticipated. The site says that if Microsoft really did place orders to manufacture three million to five million Surface tablets for the current quarter, it will have between two million and four million left over at the turn of the year. The site claims one of the prime reasons why the Surface RT is selling so poor is Microsoft's strategy to restrict Surface sales to its own stores. There are only 31 Microsoft stores and 34 smaller holiday kiosks in the US, so most consumers are unlikely to ever see the device.
Detwiler Fenton, a Boston-based brokerage firm, said in a research note today that Microsoft is likely to sell just 500,000 to 600,000 Surface RTs in the December quarter, far below its previous expectation of one million to two million. The reason: Microsoft’s tablet strategy is in “disarray.”

“Lack of distribution is killing the product,” Detwiler Fenton explained. “Mixed reviews and a [$499] starting price tag certainly don’t help, but lack of retail exposure at Best Buy and others is severely depressing sales.”
