Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

Coming in at 50.5-inch with a 4K+ display, the new Surface Hub 2 boasts a handsome design with tiny bezels that offer an immersive collaboration experience. "The gorgeous 4K+ 50.5" multi-touch display creates an inviting canvas to co-create, harnessing the power of Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10 and the intelligent cloud.

Microsoft's also introducing a new "tiling" experience with the Surface Hub 2. We've teamed up with workplace expert Steelcase to create a system of rolling stands and easy-to-use mounts to help Surface Hub 2 customers be truly mobile, gain a new perspective and capture their ideas wherever they do their best work.

The Microsoft Hub 2 enters a crowded field of digital whiteboards, where it'll compete squarely with Jamboard, Google's $5,000 4K GSuite-optimized whiteboard, and Cisco's $4,990 Spark Board, which runs the company's Spark Flex enterprise subscription suite, among others.

This week, Microsoft has begun more openly talking about the new hardware and we finally have our first look at the new device.

The screen boasts the standard surface aspect ratio of 3:2, which the company says will give users more space to collaborate on a single display. "The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style", the company said in a blog post.

David Tepper (Not Diddy) Expected To Become Panthers Owner
He went to college and business school there, then briefly moved across the OH border to do some accounting for a steel company. According to ESPN , David Tepper has agreed to purchase the Panthers for $2.2 billion.

The software on the Surface Hub 2 is, of course, based on Windows 10. The Surface Hub 2's specially engineered hinge allows it to spin 0 to 90 degrees while dynamically adjusting the orientation of content on the screen. Multiple (up to four) Surface Hubs can also be tiled together in portrait mode for "undeniable visual effect" and enabling teams to get work done across Microsoft Whiteboard, PowerBI, PowerPoint, and a full view video call.

Surface Hub 2 will start heading out to customers later this year but only in a small pilot group.

Microsoft says the device will be available for purchase next year.

Microsoft hasn't revealed any details regarding the pricing or even the exact launch date.

The most interesting part is the concept video.
