Windows "This may be a good sign for Microsoft: a little over a day after putting its new Surface RT tablet up for pre-order, the entry-level $499 version of the tablet has sold out. Its estimated shipping time has slipped from October 26, Windows 8's release date, to a more nebulous 'within three weeks'." We'll see. Wouldn't be the first time a company artificially keeps supply short to generate 'sold-out' hype.

MS limited "numbers" for sale to 3 mln this year.

And lets face it, its THE WinRT tablet. Anyone who want to have Win on ARM (why is beyond me ;) ) will go to pre order.

I think that numbers will be below 100k. Like 10% of 1 mln. Like 3 months left of this year with 3mln year sales as MS target.
