Microsoft HoloLens pre-orders go live in the UK

Microsoft’s upcoming aumented reality headset, the HoloLens, has us very excited, and while the US has been able to order the developer edition for some time, Europe has thus far been left out.

But the company has announced it will finally let other countries in on the action by expanding availability to Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand and the UK in November.

Unfortunately, these countries will still only be able to get their hands on the developer edition of the AR headset, which will cost us Brits a hefty sum of £2,719 ($3,335).

On the plus side, pre-orders are live as of today, so if you fancy trying out augmented reality before others and have a spare £3k lying around, you can secure a HoloLens immediately.

Here’s the full pricing breakdown for the new countries:

Germany, France, and Ireland: 3,299 Euro ($3,633)
UK: £2,719 ($3,335)
Australia: 4,369 AU dollars ($3,308)
New Zealand: 7,829 NZ dollars ($5,527)

A great deal with nothing to pay upfront for the brand new Galaxy S10. This pre-order deal also includes the Samsung Galaxy Buds.

Whereas the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive offer virtual reality experiences, the HoloLens’ augmented reality melds the real-word with virtual elements.

These virtual elements are overlaid on the user’s vision, and Micrososft has demoed the technology on several occassions, showing how the headset can have numerous applications.

Later this month, Microsoft will hold a Surface hardware event, where we’re expecting to hear more about the HoloLens, so stay tuned for the latest.
