This week, Avram Piltch talks about some of the new announcements from Microsoft at Mobile World Congress 2019. The must-anticipated second generation of the HoloLens was the star of the show. The new hardware is lighter, faster, and smarter. Dynamics 365 brings an added benefit of hands-on tutorials, while new Azure capabilities make it easier to deal with pinning virtual objects. The new hardware will still sell for $3,500 but also has the option of leasing through a Dynamics 365 subscription at $150 per user per month.
