    Surface likely to be the next billion dollar business for Microsoft

    Surface could be the next billion dollar business for Microsoft in the very near future as it managed to grab $908 million revenue in the company's latest quarter.

    Microsoft announced its financial earnings for the first quarter of the 2015 fiscal year, beating analyst expectations with revenue of $23.2 billion. The report has revealed impressive growth for Microsoft's hardware devices and cloud businesses, out of which the Surface managed to bring in $908 million revenue, showing a 127% year over year growth from last year's $400 million.

    Yes $908 million in sales and $1.7 billion in Surface losses thus far, so sales have increased but so have expenses.
