Mi­crosoft to in­crease pro­duc­tion of tablet

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

Mi­crosoft says it’s in­creas­ing pro­duc­tion of its Sur­face tablets and will sell them in more stores. Sta­ples says it will carry them start­ing Wed­nes­day.

The Sur­face is the ffirst tablet Mi­crosoft is sell­ing un­der its own brand, and the com­pany is pro­mot­ing it heav­ily af­ter its late-Oc­to­ber launch. But re­views have been mixed, and there have been few signs that the tablet is fiy­ing off the shelves. So far, Mi­crosoft has been sell­ing it on­line and through its own stores.

Mi­crosoft says other stores in the U.S. and Aus­tralia will now carry the Sur­face, and more coun­tries will be added within months. Mi­crosoft’s hol­i­day stores will stay in op­er­a­tion into the new year.
