Microsoft The Verge, reporting that Microsoft lost almost a billion dollars with Surface RT, in this quarter alone. "At the end of the day, though, it looks like Microsoft just made too many Surface RT tablets - we heard late last year that Microsoft was building three to five million Surface RT tablets in the fourth quarter, and we also heard that Microsoft had only sold about one million of those tablets in March." That's catastrophically bad.

Terrible pricing and no apps

I love the Surface RT but it never stood a chance.

Microsoft built it's company on low-cost mass volume PCs. Consumers expect cheap devices.

I wish they'd stop trying to act like Apple.
