Microsoft and Intel’s big push in the tablet market with Windows 8 is off to a slow start, Bloomberg is reporting.
Only a few of the tablets the two companies had touted earlier are actually available in the U.S. market currently and early demand for the Surface tablet seems disappointing, according to one analyst in the report.
The full story is here.
Microsoft had said earlier that 40 million Windows 8 licenses had been sold in the first month since its launch. But licenses include those sold to manufacturers who install the operating system on their PCs, upgrades, and multi-year deals with businesses, so it’s unclear how many of them are installed in new PCs (desktop, tablet or otherwise) that were actually sold to end users.
