Microsoft announced that it has delayed the September 1 shipping date of the Surface Hub. As the blogger said in his earlier posts, Microsoft is not saying anything about the tablet, which he added is unusual if indeed the product is programmed to come out in the coming months.
The good news is that if you go to a Microsoft Store in North America on July 29, the chances are good you can walk out with a Surface 3 or Surface Pro 3 with Windows 10 installed with that “on site” upgrade. It said it will provide an updated schedule for the device’s launch at August’s end, reports PC World.
In a blog post Monday, Microsoft Surface general manager Brian Hall wrote the Surface Hub is attracting “strong demand”, but that’s prompting the company to change its manufacturing process in anticipation of “bigger scale”. With the displays priced at as much as $20,000, in addition to Microsoft’s announcement of increasing production, the company anticipates that the sales will be more enhanced that originally expected. In the meantime, we will continue to take pre-orders. Will the Surface Hub be a boon to businesses, or will it gather dust in the conference room? A built in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and ports for wired and wireless connection round up the list of features.
The Surface Pro 3 was released last June and we did not believe for one moment that Microsoft would release the Pro 4 in the same month this year. Both of these devices are selling at a clip of about a billion dollars per quarter.
