Google, yesterday, announced an exclusive (at least so far) deal with projector company BenQ to distribute its new interactive LCD called Google Jamboard. It’s a portable (on four wheels), 55” 4K (3840×2160) resolution LCD monitor that’s integrated with Google’s G Suite — email, videoconferencing, cloud collaboration of Google Docs, device management, file sharing, etc. Pull in work from Google Docs, Sheets and Slides or add photos stored in Drive. To capture ideas, Jamboard includes tools like sticky notes and stencils as well as intelligent features like handwriting and shape recognition. And, of course, videoconferencing.
Here’s their video promotion of it.
Well, it’s $6,000. And, it’s Google.
It’s not shipping yet in mass, but they’re looking for integrators — through BenQ — to sell it.
All the Google details are here.
