Microsoft has been gearing up to release its massive 84-inch Surface Hub for a while now but unfortunately, due to manufacturing issues, things have been pushed back once again. The Surface Hub was originally scheduled to begin shipping to customers back in September 2015 and was later pushed to January 2016 but now, it won’t be available for another two months, according to Microsoft and reseller sources.
The initial report comes from CRN, with Microsoft’s Ryan Asdourian saying: “I think with any product, one of the things that’s super important to us is quality. We are making sure a product like this releases with the highest level of quality when it ends up in customers’ hands.”
While Microsoft has missed its January target shipping date, the company is saying that it will still be available early this year, with a new date marked for some time in April. Customer interest in the Surface Hub still appears to be quite high as well, despite the £5709.99 (55-inch) and £16,269.99 (84-inch) price tags.
KitGuru Says: The Surface Hub is an interesting device though obviously an 84-inch wall-mounted tablet isn’t going to be aimed at consumer use.
