The Microsoft Surface Hub was announced sometime ago, and is meant for larger businesses and enterprise companies, who are looking for a larger screen collaborative tool. On Wednesday, Microsoft announced the availability of it, and July 1st will be the first date of sale for it.
The Microsoft Surface Hub will be available for businesses to order in 24 markets starting on July 1. It will feature a number of apps and software built into the unit, and the Microsoft Surface Hub could be a hit. The pricing and details will keep it business focused though.
Two Models Available
Microsoft announced that two different models of the Microsoft Surface Hub will be available on July 1st. There will be a Surface Hub 55-inch for $6,999, and Surface Hub 84-inch for $19,999. They are certainly focused on business and enterprise customers and not the consumer.
It will have Windows 10 onboard, Skype for Business, Office, OneNote, and Universal Windows Apps right off the bat. The universal apps are going to be productivity focused and optimized for businesses, and is built for local groups, and for groups who connect from around the world.
Details and Specs
The Surface Hub will have 100 points of multi touch, feature three simultaneous pen points, dual 1080p front-facing cameras, and four-element microphone arrays that will detect voices, and eliminate background noise. Additionally it will have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and ports built-in.
Microsoft is looking to sell these units through distributors, and already has a number of companies who have placed preorders on the units. Microsoft is also looking to build these units into public conference areas and get them into businesses as quickly as they possibly can.
The Surface Hub is the ultimate tablet. It’s expensive, but your boss will want one right?
