Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 is coming to more countries later this year. The company announced at Build 2020 that its holographic computer is coming to new parts of Europe, Scandinavia, and Asia.
HoloLens 2 is currently available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Japan, the U.K. and the United States. Microsoft’s focus with HoloLens continues to be on its commercial customers, so this is not something meant for the regular consumer.
Microsoft announced today that HoloLens 2 will begin shipping in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan later this year.
To be exact, Redmond says the HoloLens 2 will begin shipping in these new markets starting fall 2020 (spring in the Southern Hemisphere). Right now, Microsoft offers the HoloLens 2 with Remote Assist powered by Dynamic 365 on a subscription basis (per user per month), though customers can also get just the standalone device as well for $3,500 per device. It’s not clear if the company will offer the same options in these new countries where the HoloLens 2 is launching later this year.
