Surface Hub demand is 'exceeding expectations'

Microsoft's impressive Surface Hub is "exceeding expectations" as demand increases and production ramps up. There's even going to be a 'try before you buy' scheme, but don't get too excited if you think you're going to trial one!

Today's news comes from Microsoft's Brian Hall who shared the details on the Windows Blog earlier this morning:

In only nine months since our launch, we've shipped Surface Hubs to over 2,000 customers in 24 markets. The average deal size is approximately 50 units, but we've seen orders as large as 1,500 units to a large car manufacturer. This makes our team so, so proud.

Given the price of the Surface Hub, that 1,500 unit delivery is a pretty amazing sell for Microsoft, and production of the Hub is now being ramped up. Resellers worldwide have stocks and Microsoft is introducing a try and buy scheme where companies can try out the Hub before committing top a large order. The US and European markets will be first to get the chance to try one for 30 days with Asia to follow at a later date.

Good news to close out the year on for Microsoft for sure!
