Last week there was a news story doing the rounds about a survey that said that Apple was â€œoverâ€ and teens were more interested in Microsoftâ€™s Surface tablet than anything Apple might produce. At the time it seemed more than a little strange, and one wondered where they got their figures from, and following the news today that Microsoft sold less than one million Surface tablets over the holiday period, it seems even stranger! iDownload Blog says that the woeful figure falls way short of the two million units that UBS analyst Brent Thill predicted would be sold back in December. Now, with these much lower results expected, Thill is saying that the Surface â€œis a consumer device with sales suffering from the difficult iPad compare and narrow distribution,â€ in a note to investors today. As iDownload Blog says, maybe things will pick up for the Surface when Surface Pro is released later in January, as unlike the RT, it can run all Windows apps, including Windows 8 apps.
