Well, at least they're doing better than their attempts at getting Xbox out on a global level.

I'm still hoping to find a Surface Pro 3 deal somewhere; the price is the only thing holding me back currently. :pinch:

1000s of "Nokia Stores" all around the world...still roll out so slowly. Talk about crap strategy.

They're still, or were still, "Nokia" stores till just a week or two ago when the deal went final, what did you expect? Besides the Surface is made by someone else and not directly part of the former Nokia supply chain, that'll probably change now that the deal is done. Still, it's a faster rollout than the original and even the 2nd generation saw, I'd say 2 months later isn't bad actually.

Here's the thing: those stores are a two way investment; by local companies and by Nokia (now MS). They exist to sell things and make money. Anyone of them with a brain will never disagree about selling surface and what not...more sales = more profit.

If MS asks them to sell these and gives the products in credit (instead of asking for money before the end-point sale takes place), why would they refuse?

Anyways, I got to talk with someone there...there are NO plans to utilize these Nokia stores to increase Microsoft's presence. So, yes, it is bad.

or wait for the firesale prices?

yeah, remember "all the other OEMs just aren't innovative enough" That's the reason for poor sales. (c) Microsoft.

Microsoft Netherlands already said months ago that the launch date is on the 28st of August. I hoped it was earlier though.

Couple this with the release of the Surface Pro 3 Docking Station, available in the US on August 15 and in remaining markets by the end of September and this is going to be a great month for [u]all[/u] Surface fans.

A hint?
