Surface Hub 2 was designed from the ground up to be used by teams – to get people out of their seats, to connect and ideate, regardless of location. The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style.
Remember when Google came out with their US$5k Jamboard and we all thought “wow that’s cool” but then you never really saw one and they released the software separately so you didn’t have to buy their crazy hardware?
Well Microsoft must’ve heard that the thing sold gang-busters and off the back of their own Surface Hub sales they’ve announced the new version today. The new Surface Hub 2 is 50.5″ of 4K touch screen goodness designed specifically for use with Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10.
Integrated cameras rotate with the screen in a cool looking animated sorted of way that FaceTime has been doing for a while now and on top of that you have the ability to chain them together to fit your particular workspace (and budget).
Today’s announcement had no price tag accompanying it however Microsoft have come out saying that it will be “competitive” to similar devices. Meaning the same as Google’s minus a little bit more than likely.
US companies on Microsoft’s BFF list will get to try these out soon with commercial availability hitting late 2018.
