Is Microsoft Corp's tablet Surface good enough to challenge the iPad? It is an absurd question if you simply compare sales volumes.
Apple Inc claimed it sold 14 million iPads in the third quarter of last year. Microsoft has always been hesitant to disclose sales information about its highly anticipated gadget.
The most optimistic estimate given by analysts is Microsoft sold 1.3 million units in the fourth quarter of 2012, a tenth of Apple's figures.
