Microsoft’s decision to do its own hardware with the Surface tablet is not working out, according to a story at Taiwanese site DigiTimes.
It cut its order of Surface tablets for the year to two million units, down from four million, according to supply chain sources speaking with DigiTimes.
Says DigiTimes, “sources from the upstream supply chain believe [Windows 8] may not perform as well as expected in the market.”
Other PC companies like Asus, Samsung, and Dell are seeing weak demand for Windows 8 tablets, says DigiTimes.
Yesterday, Asus CFO David Chang confirmed this, saying, “Demand for Windows 8 is not that good right now.”
