Speaking at a company event last week, Ballmer discussed the $900 million write down for Microsoft’s heap of unsold RT tablets.
“We built a few more devices than we could sell”, he reportedly said, according to Neowin. http://www.neowin.net/news/ballmer-states-that-windows-is-not-selling-well-next-gen-surface-in-testing
This was obviously an understatement, since the Surface RT has proven to be Redmond’s biggest flop since the Zune, but at least it did better than the Kin phone.
Ballmer also said Microsoft is not selling as many Windows devices as it would like, including PCs, phones and tablets.
There’s been much talk of a reshuffle in Microsoft and we reckon Ballmer’s new title should be something like Chief Executive for Stating the Obvious.
