Few analysts predicted that Microsoft may sell few million Surface tablets in Q4 2012. Now, IHS iSuppli analyst Rhoda Alexander have told CNET that Microsoft may sell only over 1.3 million Surface units this quarter. She said “I would be surprised to see it much above that,”.
Boston-based brokerage firm, Detwiler Fenton released their research report on Surface sales and told that the number will be below 1 Million. Do you think Microsoft can reach the million units number by selling the device through online stores alone in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, and in ~90 retail stores from US?
I think this numbers will go up if Microsoft makes Surface available among 3rd party physical and online retailers.
