Detwiler Fenton, a Boston-based brokerage firm, said in a research note today that Microsoft is likely to sell just 500,000 to 600,000 Surface RTs in the December quarter, far below its previous expectation of one million to two million. The reason: Microsoft’s tablet strategy is in “disarray.”
“Lack of distribution is killing the product,” Detwiler Fenton explained. “Mixed reviews and a [$499] starting price tag certainly don’t help, but lack of retail exposure at Best Buy and others is severely depressing sales.”
Yes, I’m sure Surface is a failure because it’s not at Best Buy. It can’t just be because it’s a turd.
Shameful move by Best Buy. Good to see justice served.
See, the real problem here is that while Best Buy may try to make its stores look like Apple Stores, they’ll be Apple Stores filled with 90+% crap.
