Microsoft decided to bring the HoloLens to 29 more European markets, followed by a new feature update to be rolled out in the first part of 2018. This move brings the total number of markets Hololens is available in to 39 while still being targeted at business and developers.
29 more countries get HoloLens
The new countries are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and Turkey.
This expansion comes one year since Microsoft first took the HoloLens outside of the U.S.
No price drops for the HoloLens at the horizon
Microsoft didn’t announce any future discounts for the HoloLens in the near future, so those of you still interested in purchasing a device will have to pay a significant amount of cash.
Microsoft says that since the company launched the HoloLens back in 2016, it has been really inspiring to see how more and more customers and partners of the company as well are using the device to transform their businesses.
A new feature update in the works
The company also plans to release a new feature update to HoloLens sometime at the beginning of next year. It will probably be released alongside the Windows 10 Redstone 4 release.
Users who already own a HoloLens already know that they haven’t been able to enjoy a set of updates since the Anniversary Update back in 2016 so the fact that a new update is in the works is great and happy news.
