When it comes to expanding its products across the globe from Redmond, it has always been clear that it was essential to have the support of third parties.
Companies and manufacturers that support their products, something that has its most important manifestation in the Windows ecosystem, which would not be the same without a large number of brands that have made it their own in their equipment.
We speak of leading companies such as HP, Lenovo, Asus, Dell … which have been on their computers the logo of the colored window for years. But in these times, collaboration is going to be more, especially for the development of new product lines. And this is the case of Windows Holographic, one of the most promising projects of Microsoft that now with the arrival of Creators Update has gained a new impetus.
And is that the spring update for Windows 10 has added support for this platform that has now been renamed Windows Mixed Reality. This way any OEM can rely on it to launch new products and that’s what Lenovo is apparently going to do, the first to “throw in the pool” in this area.
And Lenovo’s relationship with Microsoft is not without curiosity , because if you did not see as much as your Lenovo COO, Gianfranco Lanci, announced that he was not betting on the platform Windows Mobile, in parallel have bet on interesting products in The range of convertibles ( case of the Lenovo Miix 320 ) and now have their sights set on a new product.
It would be a device that based on Windows Mixed Reality would hit the markets throughout the third quarter of the year at a price they claim would be between $ 300 and $ 400 (compared to about $ 500 of current models) Which will be interesting for students and therefore for use in educational environments and environments.
This accessibility would not only be something of a price and is that to win the game to a competition already settled (at least by knowledge by the users) such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, from Lenovo could make the user You have to have hardware too powerful to make it work.
A device that will make use of two OLED screens of 1440 x 1440 pixels each and with a weight of 350 grams will be compatible with applications destined to the HoloLens and different applications of the Windows Store.
It is clear that in the coming months we are going to see how these devices in the markets are destined for leisure, as well as for the business or even educational segment. What will be the performance that you can get?
That is a question that remains in the air and you surely will not be able to have a concise answer until the technology has settled between us. While we will be happy to try what the manufacturers can offer.
