The conferencing system, essentially a gigantic tablet running Windows 10, will begin shipping on January 1, 2016, rather than September 1, 2015, as originally planned.
Microsoft began taking preorders for the coming systems, a TV-tablet-computer hybrid that is geared toward office and business use, as of July 1. Originally, the plan was for Microsoft to begin shipping units worldwide starting on September 1. But in July, the company said shipments wouldn’t start on that date. Microsoft attributed the delay to stronger than anticipated demand and the need to tune its manufacturing accordingly.
