Microsoft says sales of the HoloLens are in the thousands
Microsoft announced that sales of its AR headset – the HoloLens are in the “thousands”, several months after the developer version of the device was made available to certain major markets.
In an interview with The Inquirer, Roger Walkden, Microsoft's HoloLens commercial lead, declared that sales aren't exactly in the millions, but insisted that this is sufficient for the company at the moment:
