Microsoft Responds To Ballmer’s Comments On Surface Sales

 

Over the last weekend, we reported about Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer commenting about initial Surface sales from a French news website. Many tech blogs reported about the same and Microsoft has now responded to this to Pocketnow which you can read below,

“When asked about Surface, Steve’s use of the term “modest” was in relation to the company’s approach in ramping up supply and distribution of Surface with Windows RT, which has only been available via our online store and certain Microsoft retail stores in the U.S.  While our approach has been modest, Steve notes the reception to the device has been “fantastic” which is why he also stated that “soon, it will be available in more countries and in more stores.”

I think we will come to know about the exact Surface sales after the next quarterly earnings announcement from Microsoft. What do you think?
