    Google it.


    "Microsoft Corp. is banking on its new 12-inch tablet the Surface Pro 3 to lift the company’s profile in the tablet market but a closer look Redmond’s latest filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) appear to indicate that the Microsoft continues to lose money on the Surface platform.

    "Unlike in the previous two quarters, Microsoft’s form July 8-K (report of unscheduled material events or corporate changes) SEC filing of Surface revenues amounting to US$409 million for the quarter ended June 30 was not accompanied with the cost of revenue for the tablet. This makes it hard to accurately calculate Microsoft’s gross margin.

    "However, online technology publication used Microsoft’s 10K filing to the SEC of the company’s financial performance to calculate the cost of revenue for the Surface tablets.

    "The publication estimates that the cost of revenue for the tablet line for the June quarter is $772 million. Placed against the $409 million Surface revenue reported by Microsoft to the SEC in July, this still puts Microsoft in the hole for $363 million."
