That number includes Surface 2 tablets, which are being phased out.
“Microsoft’s own-branded devices accounted for just over a third of worldwide shipments of Windows tablets as Surface Pro 3 sales continued to gain momentum,”
“I think they got it right with the third generation,” said Canalys analyst Chris Jones in a phone interview with Forbes. “It’s taken some time to resonate with consumers but [Microsoft] keeps pushing and pushing [the marketing],” he added.
So, if you’re still holding out because you’re not sure if Surface tablets are going to be around in a year, you can probably buy with confidence. Surface almost certainly isn’t going away anytime soon.
For you folks who already took the plunge and own a Surface, doesn’t it feel good to see your underdog start to win?
