Microsoft's 84-inch pen display isn't going to ship on time

Looking forward to refreshing your office's aging teleconference system with Microsoft's 84-inch 4K collaborative pen display? You'll have to wait: the company just announced that its $20,000 Surface Hub is going to miss its September 1st ship date.

According to a new blog post, the delay is a manufacturing issue. "We started taking pre-orders on July 1 and we've seen strong demand out of the gate," wrote Microsoft Surface General Manager Brian Hall. "Based on the early interest we see, we're tuning our manufacturing process to prepare for production at broader scale. To do this, we are adjusting our product roll-out schedule to ensure we deliver a great customer experience and set our partners up for success." Microsoft hasn't said exactly when it expects the oversized touch PC to ship, but plans to give customers an update early next month.

In the meantime, the company is still accepting pre-orders for both models: the $20,000 84-inch, 4K model with NVIDIA Quadro K2200 graphics as well as the $7,000 55-inch HD display, sporting a regular old Intel HD GPU.
