The HP Reverb G2 is HP's latest entry in the consumer VR space. The headset features 2160x2160 per-eye resolution, inside out tracking provided by Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality platform, and creature comforts pulled from Valve's Index headset, such as the lenses and the over-the-ear headphones.

HP previously announced that the Reverb G2 would begin shipping in November. Popper's announcement confirms that plan is in full motion, and it may even speed things up a little bit. Popper said that the first customers could expect to see their headsets in early to mid-November.

It will take a while to fulfill the whole order book, though. HP said that the current backlog of pre-orders, which spans the globe with 27 countries accepting orders, would take all of November and part of December to fulfill. If you're interested in ordering a Reverb G2, you can still get in on the pre-order. If you order today, you may be cutting it close for pre-holiday delivery.
