Microsoft gets supply right: Surface 2 pre-orders begin selling out
posted by Michael H. / Oct 03, 2013, 9:28 PM
This time around, Microsoft and Ballmer have gotten it right, it seems. Microsoft has announced that Surface 2 pre-orders have begun selling out. According to Surface General Manager Brian Hall, the pre-order stock of the 64GB model of the Surface 2 and the 256GB and 512GB models of the Surface Pro 2 are "close to selling out" after being up for pre-order for just about one week.
The blog post goes on to say that there will be "limited availability" of Surface 2 and Pro 2 tablets, so Microsoft is recommending pre-orders. Of course, Microsoft is likely keeping availability limited to ensure it doesn't end up with more unsold stock on hand. The Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets will be hitting stores on October 22nd.

It's not that they failed to sell out their first series of surface tablets but it's because of people like you who are still stuck with dummy tablets (ipads and androids). Happy to be with my RT, giving it out to my sister in college to get a Surface pro 2.

If Ballmer and his MS team had done this when the first generation Surface Rt and the Surface Pro were introduced. they would have not made so many Surface RT tablets like they did. The Surface Pro did not have that problem because at some locations people were standing In lines to buy them. Over 85 percent of People who bought a Surface Pro say it's a good Tablet. A lot of People deliberately waited for the MS "Surface Pro 2 to come out because they wanted the bugs worked out of it. The Surface Pro 2 now has better battery life & the new accessories that make it a much better tablet/laptop hybrid. The replacement for the Surface Rt the new Silver cased "Surface 2" got thinner and lighter. More battery life, more Ram and a faster CPU and a new operating system Windows 8.1 plus MS "outlook" has ben added to it's office suite. It is now without doubt the best bang for the buck touch screen apps only business ready tablet on the planet Earth even if though it does not run old windows desktop programs. people will buy them and be satisfied with them. A similar outfitted Surface Pro 2 will cost a person over a thousand dollars.
