Microsoft is making 3 to 5 million Surface tablets in Q4 2012

Microsoft is taking the Surface seriously - it has ordered 3 to 5 million to its vendors, and all of them are coming in the fourth quarter of 2012.
That puts it on the same scale as the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire tablets. Apple in contrast is expecting nearly double that demand, and is ramping up to make 10 million iPad minis for the fourth quarter
Here is how it breaks down, according to the preliminary data that’s leaked out:
- Microsoft Surface - 3 to 5 million
- iPad mini - around 10 million
- Google Nexus 7 - 3 to 5 million
- Amazon Kindle Fire - 3 to 5 million
The Microsoft Surface has just gotten its first ad, and it’s a fun one. But will it really sell? You have a say in the comments below.

I have no interest on buying windows rt. I will wait for the Intel based windows 8 slate full functional windows. I think windows rt will be a bad OS. windows phone 8 will do better along with windows 8 slate tablet based on Intel powerfull CPU.
