The Microsoft Surface Hub has been the company’s one of the most anticipated devices of 2015 and probably 2016. The device, however, isn’t available to users just yet. Microsoft was planning to deliver the pre-ordered Surface Hubs back in September of last year. However, the shipment then got delayed to January 2016 and customers are yet to receive their Surface Hubs. Now, according to a new report from CRN, the Surface Hub won’t debut until April.
Apparently, Microsoft is delaying the device’s release due to manufacturing problems, which is quite concerning. It is worth noting that Microsoft did start showing off the Surface Hub devices recently in KING5 Seattle. Microsoft UK’s Windows and Surface BG Lead, Ryan Asdourian stated:
“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.”
Interestingly enough, a Microsoft spokesperson told CRN:
“We are still on track to ship the first Surface Hub devices to customers early this year. We are excited about the impact this new category of device will have on transforming how people collaborate at work.”
Hopefully, Microsoft will be able to deliver the Surface Hub devices to customers sometime very soon. Until then, if you are buying a Surface Hub, make sure to let us know in the comment section below!
