UBS estimates Surface tablets Q4 sales at 1m
- USA: Tuesday, January 15 - 2013 at 06:29
Swiss global financial services firm UBS has estimated sales of Microsoft's Surface RT tablets to have reached just one million in the fourth quarter, down from a prior forecast of two million, Cnet has reported. "Surface RT is a consumer device with [fourth-quarter] sales suffering from the difficult iPad compare and narrow distribution," UBS analyst Brent Thill wrote in an investors note. Thill, however, has higher expectations for Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet, which is slated to hit the market later this month. Calling the Surface Pro "more promising," Thill sees it as an alternative to the iPad among enterprises users. For Microsoft's fiscal 2013, which ends this June, the analyst estimates Surface sales of 2.5 million units, while for fiscal 2014, he's eyeing sales as high eight million.
