GOOGLE JAMBOARD LANDS IN AUSTRALIA
Competing with the likes of Samsung’s ‘Flip’, Google has announced its 55inch digital whiteboard, the ‘Jamboard’ is now available to purchase in Australia and New Zealand.
Local ‘G Suite’ customers can buy the device from their Google Cloud rep, for a notable A$7,999.
Adding to the hardware cost, customers will also be charged A$900 annual “management and support fee”.
The Google Jamboard comes with two styluses, one eraser and one wall mount. Consumers can also purchase an optional rolling stand for A$2,199.
By contrast, Samsung’s Flip is available to locally purchase for A$4,399 (including stand).
The Jamboard claims to be a “nextgeneration” digital whiteboard for businesses, and follows its global unveiling in 2016.
The 55-inch 4K display screen aims to offer collaborative input, either in person on via the cloud.
Users can also access the companion Jamboard app [iOS/Android] on either their tablet or smartphone.
