Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet Sells Out

SurfaceMicrosoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) said its Surface Pro tablet sold out almost immediately after going on sale. Analysts wonder whether it sold out because of rabid demand, or perhaps Microsoft only built a few of the machines.

According to ComputerWorld:

Microsoft started selling its Surface Pro tablet on Saturday, and quickly exhausted its supply of the 128GB configuration.

While the less expensive 64GB device was also listed as out of stock Saturday on Microsoft's online store, by Sunday it was again available.

The company acknowledged the outages.

"We're working with our retail partners who are currently out of stock of the 128GB Surface Pro to replenish supplies as quickly as possible," said Panos Panay, general manager for Microsoft's Surface line, in a Saturday blog post. "Our priority is to ensure that every customer gets their new Surface Pro as soon as possible."
