Windows on ARMNVIDIA's Tegra 3 processor is running inside Microsoft's Surface RT tablet but so far, sales of the Surface and other Windows RT devices have been disappointing. Today, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told financial analysts today, "We expected to have sold more than we did."

The comments, which can be listened to on NVIDIA's investor page, were a confirmation that sales of Windows RT have been below expectations. However, Huang believes that Microsoft will work hard to make Windows RT successful, saying, "I feel they will get it right because it's too important not to get right. It won't be the largest part of Tegra, but it will be a large part, I think."

While Huang's comments on Windows RT's current lack of success were to be expected, he then surprised the analysts by his pleas for Microsoft to launch an Outlook client that would run on Windows RT. In fact, he flat out said he has been praying to the "Outlook God" to make this happen.
