Google's new 4K digital board eyes down Surface Hub

Google unveils its new 4K-capable Jamboard, a competitor to Surface Hub

Microsoft has a competitor to its expensive, but glorious Surface Hub - which arrives in a $9000 model, but can be purchased as an 84-inch touchscreen beast for $21,000 - while Google is targeting Surface Hub with its new Jamboard.




Google's new Jamboard is a 4K-capable 55-inch smart TV that you can draw on, capable of taking 16 simultaneous touch points, Google Cast abilities, a built-in camera (for the CIA to watch you and your important meetings through), NFC, handwriting abilities, and even shape recognition.


Jamboard will cost $5000, alongside a $600 annual "support fee" - but considering Surface Hub starts at $9000 and scales to $21,000 - Google has a good chance of scooping some of that Surface Hub marketshare away from Microsoft with Jamboard.
