Microsoft Surface RT Reportedly Coming to Third-Party Outlets Soon

Maximum PC: "While analysts seldom see eye to eye, the diversity of opinions that the Surface RT has managed to inspire among them is fairly remarkable. If you ask IHS iSuppli, it will tell you that the Windows RT-based tablet is looking set to crack the 1 million unit sales mark in the fourth quarter. Boston’s Detwiler Fenton, on the other hand, expects Surface RT sales to be around the 500,000 mark.

One thing is clear though: the ARM-powered slate hasn’t really set the world on fire. That is something Microsoft is now trying to address, according to noted Microsoft blogger Paul Thurrott, by expanding the sale of the Surface beyond its own outlets."

Waste of time, effort and money because there is no market for surface RT or Windows 8 RT in general. They should just cut the bull and release Surface pro with a $500 - $700 price point.
