First Microsoft Surface Hub Units Are Now Shipping to Customers

 

After it was delayed from its original 01 September 2015 ship date, Microsoft is now shipping their Surface Hub to business customers who have pre-ordered the device from its network of resellers.

Surface Hub, which runs a specialized version of Windows 10, comes in two different sizes with the smaller 55" device costing $8,999 and the larger 84" unit available for $21,999.

We first saw Surface Hub in January 2015 when Microsoft had their big Windows 10 consumer event in Redmond and to everyone's surprise it was hanging on stage without any fanfare during the entire event until it was pointed out to everyone.

This new collaboration tool has the ability to transform conference rooms with the following features:

Inking - A responsive and natural inking experience that feels as fluid as a pen on paper.

Touch - Advanced touch capabilities recognize up to 100 touch points with precision, allowing multiple people to interact with the screen simultaneously.

Windows 10 - A new experience for Windows 10 that is tailored for group use, with ink and touch at its core. Many applications can be used without authentication.

Microsoft Office - Microsoft Surface Hub comes with Microsoft Office apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, plus the OneNote whiteboard and Skype for Business.

They will also perform well thanks to these specs:
