Surface Hub in use in aviation. Details on Surface Hub sales and support are listed at this page. "They have been our inspiration".

This model sports a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution at 120Hz and a contrast ration of 1,300:1.

Not to forget, there are many ports along with gigabit Ethernet, Wireless N, and Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy connectivity and a NFC reader. Both the devices will come with Windows 10 preinstalled with Office. It packs a screen resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 at 120Hz, a contrast ratio of 1,400:1, and the same 100-point multitouch sensor.

You'd be forgiven if you've forgotten what the Surface Hub actually is. The companies have been praising the device for reducing the printing cost of nearly $9,000 in the first year of its usage. Microsoft Corporation has been working on business phone devices in the recent times, and the Surface Phone has emerged to be one of those phones.

The Microsoft Surface Phone, which is expected to come along in the month of October this year, is expected to bring drastic changes to the way the markets of technology function. Pricing has also been an issue, as the product's cost has steadily increased. The initial innovation was not compelling and consumers responded accordingly.

The Surface Hub also has a camera that points at the user at eye level, making it seem like you're having a face-to-face conversation with the person on the other end. In a statement about today's news it said, "We are not just releasing a powerful device". We are releasing a team-empowering solution that will make meetings more productive, modernize workflows, and let people engage with data much better.

Surface Hub is Microsoft's successor to its large-screen Perceptive Pixel displays. The Surface Hub systems, which run a custom version of Windows 10, are pre-assembled, customized multi-touch, digital-ink-enabled collaboration systems.

Specifically, the Surface Hub is targeted at automotive, healthcare, manufacturing, defense, consulting, education, finance and design fields. They can reduce costs and improve effectiveness, compared to legacy AV and presentation technology. "We couldn't be more excited about this future with this new category of product". However, take note that the Surface Hub weighs 105 pounds for the 55-inch model and 280 pounds for the 84-inch model, meaning don't assume you'll be merely mounting a massive tablet onto the wall.

"Microsoft Surface Hub reimagines the meeting experience so that you can unlock the power of the group", Microsoft's marketing materials state.

The aim of the Surface Hub is to replace the whiteboard in the conference room setting, allowing smoother integration between videoconferencing and note-taking.
