Microsoft Surface Hub: $ Billion Business

Microsoft’s surprise hardware hit: The Surface Hub | Ars Technica
"The conference room computer is now apparently a billion-dollar business."

"$6,999 for the 55-inch version and $19,999 for the 84-inch version
... higher than expected demand (in particular of the 84-inch version) meant the company needed to change its manufacturing capabilities. The company also hiked the price of both models by $2,000, to $8,999 and $21,999... The average Surface Hub customer is buying about 50 devices for each deployment, and the company has achieved more than 2,000 customers."
