Microsoft to launch a huge tablet for business clients

The US software and hardware giant Microsoft has decided to launch a new huge tablet called Surface Hub. The device will soon be available for pre-orders and will appear on July 1 this year. The slate is designed for business users who like to perform presentations or brainstorming sessions and can be mounted on a wall.

The Surface Hub will be available in two versions. The first one will offer a 55-inch display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), while the second one will have a larger 84-inch screen at 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). In both cases, however, the displays will have support for 100 simultaneous touches for easier use.

Along with the large displays the Surface Hub will have powerful hardware – the tablets will have powerful Intel Core i7 processors, graphics solutions provided by NVIDIA, support for Wi-Fi and NFC, built-in cameras, as well as HDMI and USB ports. In addition to this the Surface Hub models will run a modified version of Windows 10 that will be optimized for video conferences, Skype and data transfers over the Internet.

Unfortunately the Surface Hub will not be cheap – the 55-inch version will cost USD 7 000, while the 84-inch version will sell for USD 20 000.
