Microsoft has pushed back the shipment date for its huge touchscreen Surface Hub PCs from September to January 1, 2016. The company confirmed a few weeks ago it would delay shipments of the PCs, with Windows 10 pre-installed, but did not offer a specific date until today.
Microsoft started taking pre-orders for its big 55-inch and 84-inch Surface Hub PCs early in July, and is still taking orders. The Surface Hub was created primarily for big business and education customers. Microsoft is assembling the Surface Hub in a factory located in Wilsonville, Oregon. The 55-inch model is priced at $6,999, while the 84-inch version has a price tag of $19,999.
In its previous announcement about the shipment delay, Microsoft said that it has "seen strong demand out of the gate" in terms of pre-orders for the Surface Hub. It added, "Based on the early interest we see, we're tuning our manufacturing process to prepare for production at broader scale."
