Microsoft Surface tablets earned only 853 million dollars




Has long been known about how much is actually Microsoft has managed to sell their tablets Surface RT and Surface Pro since its release in October last year. However, information surfaced about the form of the report K-10, filed by Microsoft in the Securities and Exchange Commission, makes it clear how things work at the company, with its line of tablets.

According to the report the company’s profits from the sale of the plates Surface is 853 million dollars. The report concerns the period from the launch of the sale last October, Surface RT tablet until June 30 of this year. Besides calculated and the period from the beginning of the sales version Surface Pro. Unfortunately, the report is only slightly lifts the veil of secrecy profitability of these devices, but does not report specific figures supplied copies. Rough calculations suggest that for the first quarter of 2013 , Microsoft shipped to stores around 900,000 Surface.

Against the background of digits direct competitors in the face of Apple and Android, with its army of different tablets and billion dollar profits really becomes clear that very few people need the Surface (Ballmer recently it has finally admitted himself ). Even with the fact that 32 GB version of the device (at least in the USA) reduced rates of up to 350 dollars.
