Microsoft Surface sells less units in 8 months than iPad sells in 3 days

Microsoft Surface only sells 1.7 Million units since it’s launch eight months ago.  In comparison iPad sold 57 Million in same time frame and over 3 million iPads in the first three days.  Almost twice the total sales of the surface in just three days.

No wonder Apple had a smug look on their face every time a reporter said the Surface would replace the iPad.
