Surface Hub app now available for Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Microsoft has now made available in the Windows Store, an app that is for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet only. With this Surface Hub app, you can customize the sensitivity of the Pen used on the slate. You can also customize the top button of the Pen, to open either One Note Modern or One Note Desktop. The former is the default setting.

While the Surface Hub does not allow customization for the two lower buttons on the Pen, there is speculation that it will be coming with a later update to the app. What you can do with the app, besides customizing the sensitivity of the Pen and the Pen's top button, is send your feedback to Microsoft. The software giant wants to know how likely you are, on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being most likely), to recommend the app to a friend. If you wish, you can add to that score by writing out some of the features you like or dislike about Surface Hub.

Last week, there was speculation that Microsoft was going to do away with the entire Surface line in light of disappointing sales of the Surface Pro 3. That rumor was later denied by the company. Microsoft said sales of the Surface Pro 3 are off to a strong start. It added that the next Surface Pro slate is being planned and that it will be compatible with Surface Pro 3 accessories.

No, 1st - samsung doesn't make them , its Wacom (and they are used in many other tablets)... 2sn - SP1 and 2 used Wacom pens; Microsoft weighted the pros and cons , decided to go with NTrig on the SP3..

I used a Note 10.1 for awhile with the wacom pen and now I use the Pro 3 with its pen. If you honestly think the wacom is better, then you probably haven't used both for many hours at a time like I have. The wacom pen was like a twig and the Pro pen is like.....an actual pen.

Hmm the Surface Pro 4 is being designed ! that's great a Surface Pro 4 with the New Intel Broadwell M CPU will run faster, give better battery life and maybe make the Surface Pro 4 a little thinner and lighter. all it will need to really be a Tablet that can replace Laptop computer is a thicker stiff keyboard dock like Asus and Lenovo have for their Tablets. The Surface Pro 3's thin type cover is OK but professionals want a thicker mechanical keyboard they can do long typing sessions on. I am glad they made the Surface Pro 3's Pen better there was a lot of concern over Microsoft not using the Wacom Pen on the Surface Pro 4 I wonder why Microsoft did not include the software in the surface Pro 3 that would allow the use of the Surface Pro 1 and 2's Wacom Pen.
