Sales of Microsoft's Surface line of slates are beginning to increase, where back in Microsoft's first quarter of FY2014, it sold $400 million worth. Compared to second quarter FY2014, where it sold $893 million worth - a nice increase in sales.




Microsoft didn't unveil how many units it sold, but even with the increased sales, the company is still at a $39 million loss on the Surface line. Amy Hood, Microsoft's Chief Financial Officer, said: "With Surface, demand continued to grow, benefiting from improved execution at retail and favorable reviews of the new Surface devices. Sequentially, both units and revenue more than doubled this quarter, with customers recognizing Surface's differentiated value proposition as one device for everything in their life. We feel good about the progress we have made over the past couple of quarters, and are enthusiastic about the overall opportunity ahead with Surface".
