Beginning around noon EST today, Wal-Mart’s online ordering for the Microsoft Surface RT tablet which included the massive price cut for the 32GB version, showed the discounted tablet as being SOLD OUT. The Windows Tablet was however still available through certain local stores. Shortly after being questioned for a comment on the sold out product, the site had suddenly updated its Microsoft Surface page to indicate that the Surface RT tablet was once again available but that the newly purchased device wouldn’t ship until August 6. So if the Surface RT was really sold-out as the site had indicated, why then did it take so long to make the call to ship the tablets at a later date? Read the full story here.
Following Microsoft’s significant price cut last week, the Surface RT sold out at Walmart.com on Monday, but then, there it was again, no longer sold out. What happened?
