Tablets on the rise: Microsoft Surface quarterly revenues more than double

Microsoft Surface revenues in its second fiscal quarter topped $893 million, the company said on Thursday. The figure is more than double the $400 million in Surface sales from the prior quarter and follow a $900 million inventory write-off of Surface devices in July, most of which were Surface RT units. The second edition of the devices — Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 — seem to have a stronger following, likely because of improved hardware, longer run-time on a single charge and more applications available in the touch-friendly version of Windows 8.1.
