Microsoft today released its earnings results for its second fiscal quarter, revealing a slew of numbers, including for its Surface and Xbox businesses. Revenue from the company’s tablet computers more than doubled from $400 million in Q1 to $893 million in Q2.

That’s excellent news for the company, as the company previously took a $900 million inventory charge for the original Surface RT in Q4. While the Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are by no means flying off the shelves, this means the company is certainly seeing more success the second time around.
