Surface Hub reportedly supports 100 touch points, will come with two pens, and has integrated batteries

The Surface is already offered in two sizes; 10 and 12 inches. But Microsoft is offering much bigger options aimed at business users. The Surface Hub, as it will be known for business users will be offered in two behemoth options; 55 and 84 inches. While the Surface Pro lets business users work on projects individually, there has never been an option to work as a team in the conference room until now with the Surface Hub. Much like a whiteboard, the Surface Hub allows business teams to work and share ideas with all the touch and pen features of the Surface Pro, but on a much larger scale.

According to Geek, the Surface Hub with its 55 and 84 inch options, allow for a staggering 100 touch points, come with two pens, and are rechargeable, indicating integrated batteries. The Surface Hub also has dual cameras so you can include everyone in a Skype conference call. NFC and Bluetooth support is also available, allowing you to use your Windows Phone to upload documents and images to the Surface Hub.

Obviously, the Surface Hub will run Windows 10 once the OS launches, so you can use all the same universal apps from your Windows Phone, tablet, or PC. Microsoft has not officially announced pricing for the Surface Hub 55 or 84 inch models yet, but that will likely come soon. Similar devices usually run upwards of $5,000 or more, but without any type of official Microsoft announcement, we will just have to wait and see.
