The Microsoft Surface that we were promised ages ago is finally being released in the form of the Surface Hub. Two models will be available for pre-order at the start of July, a $7000 55" model and a $20,000 84" version with a delivery date in September. The screens can recognize up to 100 touchpoints and are also designed with a stylus in mind so you can use it as a whiteboard or to add comments to your media in real time. The device sports infrared, imaging and depth sensors which can be used to add to your meetings. The smaller model is powered by Intel's HD4600 while the larger model contains an NVIDIA Quadro K2200. Check it out at The Inquirer.
"MICROSOFT HAS ANNOUNCED that an 84in Surface device will go on sale next month at the bargain price of $20,000. Microsoft announced the Surface Hub 55in and 84in touchscreen all-in-one devices in January, and said today that they will be available to order from 1 July."
