Microsoft's net income has fallen down in the latest quarter, reveals the market report, while the company believes that the shoppers have held off for Windows 8, which have been planned to be launched by next week.
According to the recent reports, Samsungs' last quarter net income has fallen a greater-than-expected 22% with getting down to $4.47 billion or 53 cents per share from $5.7 billion, or 68 cents per share, a year ago.
Officials confirmed that the sale of the company's products have cited a fall of 8% to $16.01 billion, which they believe, could be the reason of the lesser demand for personal computers running with Windows these days, or more consumers holding off their new purchases in the tight economy, or may be due to the consumer's preference to buy tablet devices instead.
Microsoft hopes to see improvement in the present PC sales by next week with the launch of its new Windows 8 system on Friday.
"Investors were not expecting a home run. All expectations are on the launch of Windows 8 and the entrance into the tablet market", said Mr. Daniel Ives, analyst at FBR Capital Markets. "In light of the environment, the macro and PC situation, these are respectable numbers".
