Microsoft CEO Says Surface Sales Starting 'Modestly' - Report

Capital: Sales of Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) tablet Surface "are starting modestly," said the company's chief executive, Steve Ballmer, in an interview with French daily Le Parisien published Saturday, adding that this is due to Surface only being available online and in a few Microsoft stores in the U.S. (Gadgets, Microsoft Surface, Steve Ballmer)

They are lucky to sell even one because it is way over priced. They should have released it a month earlier and at half the asking price to get the ball rolling then charge the current price next year with the next hardware revision.

I believe that thing about supply shortage is BS. I'm sure that if the demand was really greater than the supply then they would be happy to share a sales figure or even give a rough estimate cause nothing gains customer and developer confidence more than to hear that it sold millions since launch.

It has very little apps available which may leave the customer eventually feeling like they might have just purchased an expensive toy and they also might have made some developers shy away from the platform due to low install base and slow growth.
