Hub shipments will begin on January 1.
While pre-orders started July 1, the Hub was meant to leave factory floors September 1. Microsoft then announced the device, intended for enterprise use, would miss that date due to higher than expected demand. Microsoft said it needed to adjust manufacturing to meet orders.
Now, we look to New Year’s Day for the larger-than-life tablets to start shipping. The 55-inch model runs at $6,999 (about £4,600, AU$5,350) and the 84-inch version $19,999 (about £13,000, AU$15,000). Running a custom version of Windows 10, the Hub also comes with a number of apps built just for its supersized frame and capabilities.
