Introducing Microsoft Surface Hub 2

  • Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

The company will start testing the Surface Hub 2 with some of its commercial customers this year, and it will be generally available next year. When I asked Seiler if users would be able to do this kind of cross-device content sharing with Surface Hub 2, she would only say "you can manipulate content from a variety of devices".

Today, Microsoft is announcing its Surface Hub 2 with a bunch of new features to silence the competition once again.

The Microsoft Hub 2 enters a crowded field of digital whiteboards, where it'll compete squarely with Jamboard, Google's $5,000 4K GSuite-optimized whiteboard, and Cisco's $4,990 Spark Board, which runs the company's Spark Flex enterprise subscription suite, among others.

According to him, the new device will be easy to set up and work instantly as you walk into the room. Surface Hub 2 takes the baby steps towards a multiple display thing.

Microsoft isn't yet disclosing pricing, but Seiler said it would be "in line with similar competitive devices".

Microsoft debuted the first-generation Surface Hub in January, 2015, at the remarkable event that also introduced the world to the HoloLens.

More information on Surface Hub 2 full specs, price range, and a release date is expected by 2019.

President Trump: US and China Going to Get ZTE Back to Business
President Donald Trump said in a tweet Sunday that he's working to give China's ZTE "a way to get back into business, fast". The president has taken a tough stance on what his administration deems unfair trade practices by the Chinese government.

Of course, it was designed with Microsoft apps in mind, including Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365 and Windows 10 - it's not clear how other platforms will work beyond simply Skyping in.

Up to four Surface Hub 2s can be mounted alongside one another, or a single hub can be placed on a rolling easel. The Surface Hub will largely be showing content from PCs and smartphones, and people are flipping between orientations on those devices is becoming more and more common.

"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". They can rotate as the Hub 2 rotates from landscape to portrait mode and vice versa.

When I asked Seiler more about the version of Windows 10 that will power Surface Hub 2, she said "Windows 10 is what it's built on", and wouldn't go beyond that.

With the Surface Hub 2, the upcoming device will support multi-user sign-ins.

Microsoft is targeting the Hub 2 at work, rather than play.

Yet, if there's one thing that Google's Chromebooks demonstrated easily it's that the educational sector is ripe for targeting by tech companies if they keep prices in check.
