Ballmer says Microsoft Surface RT sales off to ‘modest’ start

Microsoft CEO Ballmer braces shareholders for a 'fundamental shift,' more of its own devices in the future

Microsoft’s been holding Surface for Windows RT sales figures close to its chest so far, but CEO Steve Ballmer has allowed in an interview with Le Parisien that the much ballyhooed tablet is off to a “modest” start. The bombastic exec gave that appraisal while touting the imminent arrival of the tab’s higher-powered sibling, Surface for Windows 8 Pro, though he didn’t elaborate further. After all the cake it’s no doubt lavished marketing the slate, we’ll have to see if the software giant finds the hardware game tough to swallow.
