Windows 10 update set for October release

Windows 10 update set for October release

You're looking at $350 for just the headset, or $450 for a bundle with the motion controllers.

Microsoft hardware partners announced a whole range of new devices, and Microsoft choose to highlight some on the Windows blog.

Global plans for Mixed Reality headsets have been pretty quiet so far, but at least there's a British price. The update will also include the new Windows Fluent Design System, which will work to enhance the feel and look of apps and the operating system in general.

Mixed Reality headsets will start at $299 from Acer, with HP pricing its own at $329, and Dell / Lenovo pricing theirs at $349.

Mixed reality has always been on Microsoft's radar, as earlier this year, it introduced Paint 3D.

There's one last bit of Windows VR news to round out a week of big announcements for the upcoming platform; the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update hits on October 17th.

It is not yet clear how Microsoft intends to push users to update, but it is popular opinion that the most secure Windows systems are typically those that are most up to date. Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year.

Microsoft's new software release shrinks the laborious set-up of VR headsets for users to around 10 minutes, down from two to three hours now and helps cut the costs of headsets, in a step towards making such technology more mainstream, they said. Microsoft recommends updating devices to the latest version of Windows 10 by visiting the Windows Security page and selecting Verify you're updated to manually update your device. Lenovo has now announced the official name of the device: the Lenovo Explorer. It will even add a cloud-powered Clipboard that will sync across Windows, iOS, and Android, so you can copy from a PC and paste it on a phone.

Once Microsoft does decide Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is stable enough to ship, it will continue to update features and fix bugs in it. Windows users and administrators can enforce the upgrade to install it as early as possible, or wait until Windows Update selects the PC for the update.
