The Microsoft Surface Hub in all its glory

Announced at the January Windows 10 event, the Microsoft Surface Hub is a giant, touchscreen Windows computer aimed at the enterprise market. But here at Mobile World Congress we (well, some of us, anyway) got our first actual, in-person look at it. If you ever thought it was impressive, you were absolutely right. It's incredible.

Microsoft isn't letting anyone play with it, which is to be expected given the pretty hefty cost, but it is taking pride of place on the booth. So we've snapped a few images for you to check out below.

Microsoft may have stopped its own sales of the Surface Pro 2 some time ago, but the 10.6 inch tablet is still available from some retailers. Best Buy is now selling the 256GB version of the tablet for just $599.99, a $500 decrease from its normal price of $1,099, while the 512GB has an even bigger price cut to $799, which is $800 less than its normal price of $1,599.

The Surface Pro 3 is arguably doing well. In fact, Microsoft posted $1.1 billion in revenue from their Surface line, which is a 24% increase over the previous quarter. Although that number by comparison is not staggering, it does demonstrate that the Surface, as a product line, has some interest.

Windows RT and the Surface 2, though, are not fairing so well. Microsoft today confirmed with Business Insider that the laptop-esque device is no longer being manufactured, although you can still pick one up from Microsoft Stores and retailers while supplies last.

Murmurings of such a cancellation started back in October when ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley reported that Microsoft was finished with ARM-based Surface tablets.

Microsoft is releasing their Q2 Fiscal Year 2015 results, and the numbers are quite good, despite some ominous decreases in revenue (due to sales or acquisitions).

The Surface line has officially crossed the billion dollar mark for revenue demonstrating a 24% growth from the previous quarter. In other words, the big holiday season looks to have been successful in pushing the Surface Pro 3, which drove the growth, into more hands than ever.
