Microsoft chief executive officer Steve Ballmer (pictured above) has acknowledged that the company built way too many Surface RT tablets. Microsoft lost over $900 million on the tablet.
During an internal Microsoft event that took place earlier this week, Ballmer reportedly said “We built a few more devices than we could sell.”
Based on the retail price and the amount that Microsoft lost, it amounts to about 6 million unsold Surface RT tablets. Microsoft is currently working on the next generation of the Surface tablet and the internal responses have been positive, according to The Huffington Post.
