Microsoft Surface looks to be flopping

Microsoft (and its fan base) had high hopes for the Surface tablet but in reality it`s looking like a failure. Traffic analytics firm Chikita paints a not so rosy picture.

Gizmag reports:

"Analytics firm Chitika looked at tens of millions of (North American) tablet ad impressions from November 12-18. The Windows RT Surface barely registered, making up 0.13% of tablet web traffic. That means that out of every 10,000 tablet ad impressions, an average of 13 came from Surface."


"Chitikia's statistics are bad for Microsoft, but they aren't much better for Google. The Nexus 7 and 10 combined for over seven times the web traffic of Surface. That sounds good at first, but it still only makes up about 1% of tablet web traffic."

to be fair the Surface hasn`t been out very long but these numbers don`t look encouraging
