Surface Business Grows 50% to Nearly $500 Million in Revenue

Microsoft released its third quarter (Q3) earnings earlier today for fiscal year 2014 (FY14). This is the first quarter under new CEO Satya Nadella. The earnings report contained a number of interesting pieces of information including how the Surface business is doing. Microsoft has been relatively quiet about the Surface business since it had to do a $900 million write-off last year.

Compared to last year Surface revenue is up 50% to $494 million. Microsoft also stated they are seeing an increasing mix of second generation (Surface 2) and Surface Pro 2 devices. It appears Microsoft’s investment into tablet hardware is starting to pay off and the Surface may be another multi-billion dollar business for Microsoft next year.
