Microsoft Upgrades Surface Tablets

tablet_2013Microsoft is updating its range of Surface tablets following weak sales of the original models. The updates include faster processors and higher-resolution screens and cameras.

Both the ARM-based Windows RT version and Intel-powered Windows 8 edition are being upgraded.The firm previously posted a $900m (£560m) writedown after building more of the first-generation RT versions than it could sell.

Analysts said demand for Microsoft’s devices might continue to lag behind rival products. However, they added that the firm’s support for the product line was part of a long-term strategy that might ultimately pay off.
