This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

For a category-defining first-gen device introduced in early 2015, HoloLens has had a remarkably long lifespan.
But it increasingly seems like 2019 could be the year that HoloLens 2 is revealed as official channels have now been weeks without the tock of the original headset.
Microsoft initially launched HoloLens as a dev kit in early 2016 and later that year made it available in a ‘Commercial Suite’ edition that was positioned toward enterprises.
Through 2017 and 2018 the company steadily grew the headset’s distribution channels and options: opening official third-party resales and rentals, expanding regional availability,
offering a certified hard hat option for the headset, and launching first-party software tools for enterprise visualization and remote help.
And to top it all off, Microsoft recently landed a $480 million defense contract to provide the US Army with AR headsets.
With so much momentum, it’s surprising to see that both the HoloLens Commercial Suite and Development Edition have been out of stock from Microsoft for what appears to be several weeks now.
We reached out to the company to ask when the stock is expected to return, but the company didn’t offer any timeline.
“Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition and Commercial Suite are out of stock and unavailable from Microsoft Stores. For customers looking to purchase HoloLens,
please visit HoloLens.com for a listing of HoloLens resellers as well as rental options,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Road to VR.
We looked into the official HoloLens reseller for the US and Canada, Insight, but found that HoloLens is out of stock there too.
