Surface Tablet Sales Are Still Not High Enough

The Surface tablet sales by Microsoft are still not high enough. They include among their competition the Lenovo Yoga Series, the Kindle Fire HD and the iRulu 7. Its Surface Pro remains however the cheapest alternative for people who want the world at their fingertips.

If you want to exchange your laptop for a surface tablet, then Microsoft’s number is just the thing for you. At a cost price of $600, it sure is a bargain in today’s world of scarce resources and rabid competition. It is a form of uber-bibliophilia.

The love of culture and all things cultural will find its resolution in the shape of this tablet. The Surface Pro Windows 8 tablet has a ton of inner functions and cool features. As for the Surface RT, it is even cheaper at $300.

The sales of the Surface tablets were not so hot some time back. But they have climbed the economic ladder and have started commanding both respect and presence in the world of gadgets and products. The Surface tablets have doubled in matters of incoming revenue. That would equal a sum amounting to $893 million.

Discounts on the new batch of Surface goods have led to greater sales volume. But that’s where the rosy perspective ends and the real world of brute facts begins. Microsoft still has an infinitesimally small share of the tablet market on a global level.

While it sells well, it has yet to reach the level of its rivals: Google’s and Apple’s record sales. And then there is the further shock of tablets taking a large chunk away from the overall profits. Microsoft still has a long way to go. But hopefully it will make it into the future times as a viable and productive firm.
