The Redmond giant is not immediately sharing any pricing details and says it will begin testing the Surface Hub 2 with select commercial customers in 2018, with it being made available for purchase in 2019.

But the interesting thing with the Surface Hub 2 is that multiple displays can be connected together to make a single wall of slick screens, thanks to a removable webcam. "The 4K cameras that rotate with the device, integrated speakers and far field mic arrays allow everyone in the meeting to feel as if they are right in the room with the rest of the group, while our standard Surface 3×2 aspect ratio means everyone has more usable space to create and collaborate", Panay said.

Users of other Surface devices, like the Surface Book or Surface Pro, will notice that the display on the new Surface Hub 2 has an aspect ratio that matches the one on those devices. With the introduction of the Surface Hub 2 comes the ability to align up to four Hubs together to create one enormous touch-supporting screen.

Microsoft does not yet have much to say on Surface Hub 2 specs.

According to him, the new device will be easy to set up and work instantly as you walk into the room.

Microsoft's also introducing a new "tiling" experience with the Surface Hub 2. Interested businesses and customers can find out more about the device here.

Any big change by Trump certainly would bring lawsuits from environmental groups as well as California. Leaks about the Trump EPA plan already have provoked a suit from California and 16 other states.

Microsoft doesn't mention a larger unit like the current 84-inch model, and there's good reason why the company may not take this larger avenue: Tiling. Surface Hub is an interactive whiteboard aimed at productivity. I am not exactly sure what Microsoft considers to be a competitive device. The company even went all out with the Surface Hub three years back and chose to announce a touch screen the size of a blackboard.

Though the Hub 2 will run Microsoft's Whiteboard and Skype apps, as the first Surface Hub did, Teams will be the centerpiece of the new Surface Hub 2.

Surface Hub 2 offers multi-user sign in to authenticate multiple people in the same Surface Hub 2 workspace, allowing them to simultaneously access documents and ideas and merge them. They can rotate as the Hub 2 rotates from landscape to portrait mode and vice versa. But as Microsoft's concept of the workplace has evolved, the Surface Hub 2 will be a key component of what Microsoft now calls the "intelligent edge", a catch-all term for the PCs, phones, and other devices that will interface with the "intelligent cloud" of Microsoft's apps and services, Day said.

Yet, if there's one thing that Google's Chromebooks demonstrated easily it's that the educational sector is ripe for targeting by tech companies if they keep prices in check.
