While many Microsoft fans are already playing with their Surface tablets, quite a few are not having such a good time, and are still waiting for theirs to be delivered.
Many buyers have had no notification about the status of their orders, and quite a few are having their orders cancelled, without any real explanation.
Mark from WP7.nl is one of the later, having received this email.
I ordered mine on 10/18 and it was cancelled by Microsoft on 10/27:
The following item(s) have been cancelled from your order:
Product SKU: Z2S-00002
Product Name: Surface HD Digital AV Adapter Qty Ordered: 1 Reason for cancellation: Other
Product SKU: 9HR-00026
Product Name: Surface with Windows RT
Qty Ordered: 1
Reason for cancellation: Other
While I think there is too much goodwill amongst the Microsoft community to call this a botched launch, Microsoft is in the unusual position of having product that is in extreme demand, and it would be good for all involved to satisfy this demand as smoothly as possible, which has not been the case so far.
Have any of our readers had their orders cancelled? Let us know below.
Thanks Mark for the tip.
