Microsoft: Our Surface 2 Tablets Have Nearly Sold Out
According to Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) official Twitter account for developers, the company is nearly out of stock of its upcoming Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets, though what it means in terms of sales figures is unclear. Dated October 4, 2013, Microsoft displayed the following claim via Twitter:
Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are close to selling out. All those buyers are gonna need apps. Your move: http://t.co/YGWmjklfuB

Microsoft’s online store seems to reflect the company’s claims as the release dates for its various tablet models display varying shipping estimates despite the fact that both the ARM-powered Surface 2 and the Intel-powered Surface Pro 2 have an official release date of October 21. The website shows Surface Pro 2 64GB and 128GB models shipping on October 21, but the 256GB and 512GB models are now scheduled to ship on October 29.
