According to “Taiwan-based notebook supply chain makers”, tablets powered by Microsoft’s Windows RT and Windows 8 are hard to sell; this assessment is based on low sales figures since Windows 8 was launched in late October.

There are two core problems with the Microsoft-powered tablets, according to the same sources: first and foremost, they are priced higher than competing slates powered by Google’s Android operating system. Second, the sources claim that the poor software title collection is also a big problem which is not helping sales at all; compared to the selection available in the Apple and Google store, the number of titles available for Windows-tablets is far lower.

The Surface Pro — recently priced at $900 – $1000 — is expected to land next month. Because of all the above, the report claims that the full-fledged Microsoft tablet “is unlikely to achieve its anticipated shipments”.
