Digitimes: Surface sales to only hit 60% of forecast in 2012

Digitimes’s somewhat less than impeccable upstream supply sources are claiming that Surface sales will only hit 60% of Microsoft’s forecast in 2012.

Unfortunately Digitimes did not exactly reveal what these forecasts were, leaving us to guess exactly how many millions of units this would represent.

Their sources claim buyers are not seeing the value proposition of Windows RT tablets, and that Asus’s own Windows RT tablet is similarly affected.

On the other hand they expect full Windows 8 tablets to benefit, as users wait for these more powerful devices.

Are any of our readers waiting also opting for Windows 8 tablets over Windows RT ones, despite the bulk and battery life advantages of RT devices? Let us know below.
