Surface RT: Feeling the pinch
Since its release in October, Microsoft’s first branded tablet sold a little over 1 million units
. Yet the Surface Pro has sold about 400,000 and was released three months later. The Surface RT cannot run software written for the x86 versions of Windows (Surface Pro can) because it uses an ARM processor. So analysts are wondering if there is a strong enough consumer demand for Windows RT. One bad sign: Acer and Samsung have held off launching their own Windows RT devices.
