Surface Hub delayed, shipping details to come in August

After revealing its massive, Windows 10 powered Surface Hub at its consumer event in January this year, Microsoft has been hyping the successor of the Perceptive Pixel as the perfect tool for enterprise users, with built in video-conferencing abilities, pen and touch input and native OneNote integration for meetings and planning.

Microsoft started preorders for the device on the 1st of July, with an estimated shipping date of September. According to a recent post on the Surface blog by Brian Hall, however, the demand for the product greatly exceeded Microsoft's expectations and, as a result, the company will need more time to ramp up production and coordinate with its strategic partners to provide a smoother launch, thus delaying shipments. The company will keep accepting preorders but no information has been provided on when the devices will be shipped, except that further details will be revealed in August.

The Surface Hub will come in two variants: an i5-powered 55-inch version with a resolution of 1080p and an 84-inch version, powered by an i7 and sporting a 4K screen. The former will cost $6,999, while the latter is going for $19,999.
