Microsoft Surface Hub 2

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

Microsoft just unveiled the all-new Microsoft Surface Hub 2. After watching the introductory my jaw-dropped multiple times, and it won’t get back in the place. It’s going be around ~$5,000 and launching in 2019.

๐Ÿ˜ฎSeriously, the last time I fell in love with a product like this, Steve Jobs was still alive. And it was Apple (which seems to be struggling with how to make an escape key on a keyboard that doesn’t stop working for 25,000 people as soon as the warranty runs out. Apply are you listening?)

๐Ÿ˜ฎ I am awestruck by the new Microsoft Surface Hub 2. The seamless switch between landscape and portrait orientations is just awe-inspiring and so useful. I don’t have a use for it, but I feel like I need one.


๐Ÿ“บMicrosoft’s new Surface Hub 2 is a mega-sized 50.5-inch Windows 10 tablet for modern conference rooms.

โฒIt launches in 2019, though Microsoft won’t say precisely when.


๐Ÿ‘€ Users will be able to switch it from portrait to landscape orientation, thanks to a hinge on the back. They’ll also be able to take a bunch of Surface Hubs 2s and turn them into one big screen. Microsoft is calling this tiling.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Microsoft won’t yet divulge the device’s price but did say it will be comparable to Google’s competing Jamboard, which costs $5,000.
The original Surface Hub, which had an 83-inch screen, cost about $22,000.


๐Ÿ“น Most of the software will be optimized for Microsoft Teams, and far-field microphones and 4K cameras will allow you to make video calls in portrait mode that make it feel like youโ€™re standing next to a colleague.
