Google today started selling its Jamboard in the US and shared that the 4K digital whiteboard will be available for purchase in the United Kingdom and Canada "this summer".

Jamboard lets you draw, add post-it notes, write with handwriting recognition, place stickers, perform Google web and image searches, add web content, use Hangouts, and of course leverage Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Google Drive. The search giant announced the Jamboard back in October of a year ago, and now it's finally available for purchase.

The Jamboard is definitely a more cost-efficient option compared to Microsoft's counterpart, The Surface Hub, which costs $9,000 for the 55 inch 1080p model and $22,000 for the 84 inch 4K model.

Since its announcement in October, the Google Jamboard has been tested by various major corporations such as Dow Jones, Whirlpool and Pinterest.
