Microsoft: Surface Hub demand “exceeded initial forecasts”


Surface Hub has been one of the most interesting devices from Microsoft in the last couple of years. The company announced the device last year, and it started shipping the devices to customers recently. The device, as you may expect, isn’t cheap: the 55-inch variant of the device costs $8,999 while the bigger 84-inch variant comes in at $21,999. Now, a Microsoft spokesperson stated that the company has sold the Surface Hub to more than 500 customers worldwide which is quite a lot. Apparently, the demand for the Surface Hub is “very strong and exceeded initial forecasts.” Here is the full statement (via Petri):

“Demand for Surface Hubs is very strong and exceeded initial forecasts. To date, we’ve shipped to over 500 customers worldwide and that number continues to grow. We are ramping up production to meet this strong demand via our partner reseller channel as soon as possible. Customers are encouraged to speak with their sales representative if interested in ordering Surface Hubs.”

As Microsoft stated, the company is ramping up production to meet the demand. However, as it looks like, Surface Hub has been quite a hit for Microsoft already. Did you order a Surface Hub for your company? Let us know in the comment section below.
