If you ordered a Microsoft Surface Hub, the company announced today that they have begun shipping the device to customers. This is a milestone the company has been pushing since last year, and today customers will begin getting notified about their devices.

The path to shipping the product has been bumpy to say the least; initially opening up orders in July of last year, the device was delayed twice and the price was raised as well. With the logistical challenges behind them, the company is now opening up about who will be using the using the devices, like the Children’s Hostpital of Philadelphia, and how they expect Hubs to change how we collaborate.

The Surface Hub is a bold step from Microsoft to try and make conference rooms less mundane. Typically, a meeting is fraught with technology that comes up short, attendees forgetting documents or those who dial-in, being left out of the collaboration process; Microsoft’s goal is to make meetings more productive with their new device.
