In 2016, Google announced Jamboard, a cloud-based interactive whiteboard meant to compete with Microsoft's Surface Hub. Seven months later, the collaborative device was finally released to all G Suite customers in the U.S. before it was rolled out to other markets such as Canada, the U.K., and select European territories.
As part of its promise to make Jamboard available in more countries, Google has announced the availability of the collaborative whiteboard in New Zealand and Australia for AU$7,999, complete with two styluses, an eraser, and a wall mount. G Suite customers in those countries can also pay for an additional AU$900 per year for management and support services and another AU$2199 for the optional rolling stand.
The new pricing scheme for customers in New Zealand and Australia is remarkably higher than when Jamboard was first made available for purchase last year in the U.S., where it retails for $4,999 (approximately AU$6,774.00).
Jamboard also comes with a companion app for Android and iOS devices. It's worth mentioning that customers need a G Suite license to view and open files from Google Drive and collaborate with colleagues using those documents.
