A couple of days ago we reported that,Microsoft could push the Surface Tablets through Non-Microsoft channels in order to change their current distribution strategy,though there wasn’t any official announcement about the same.
Here’s what Scott Browning Marketing Director of JB Hi Fi said,
“We have been talking to Microsoft for some time about selling their Surface tablet. It’s now a question of stock levels and whether we can get the device into stores prior to Christmas.”
As per the site,this move by Microsoft is not welcomed by the other Windows 8 partners and they feel that this would affect their own Android and Windows 8 tablet sells.
Let’s hope that this strategy works for Microsoft and would give a tough competition to the other Android and iOS based devices in the market.
