40778689 story Microsoft Surface Struggles to Ship A Million Units 375 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Wednesday December 05, 2012 @12:41PM from the tim-cook-hexed-ballmer dept. zacharye writes "While some see potential in Microsoft's Surface tablet, most industry watchers appear to have written off the device at this point. Orders were reportedly cut in half following a slow launch, and Microsoft's debut slate has been hammered time and time again by reviewers and analysts. The latest to pile on is Boston-based brokerage firm Detwiler Fenton, which estimates that when all is said and done, Microsoft will have sold fewer than 1 million Surface tablets in the slate's debut quarter." Still better than 25,000.
