HTC to release mobile virtual reality headset in 2017

HTC will offer a mobile VR solution, and it'll work with the company's new top-end smartphone, the U Ultra, but it'll be more than just a headset that lets the smartphone do most of the work like the Samsung Gear VR, according to HTC CFO Chia-lin Chang, who spoke to CNET. But he did not go into further details, or whether the device would be shipping anytime soon. It launched a phone-based VR app store called Viveport M in China past year, and a leaked concept video included a smartphone with Vive branding, although there's no evidence HTC ever meant to make one.

The company also plans to launch its next-generation flagship smartphone featuring Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 CPUs, Chang said, noting that HTC has secured sufficient parts and components for production of the new flagship model. But the VR market is still in its fledgling stages and low-priced alternatives like Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, and the like are stealing market share. As for Justin's current device rotation, he carries around the Google Pixel and Nexus 9. "We have learned much from our entrance into the world of virtual reality, and we believe our focused approach to building the ecosystem is the right strategy to enable the whole industry to expand through the creation of compelling content and rich experiences, and that our HTC Vive is at the forefront of that market".

Mark Warburton's reign as Rangers manager
The club said they had granted the English manager his wish to leave Ibrox, following negotiations with his representatives. But that position changed as Forest handed caretaker Gary Brazil the reins until the end of the season.

The company is still pinning its hopes on the success of its Vive virtual reality headset. "As HTC, we're better prepared than most companies to reach that full spectrum". Maybe he's suggesting they'll have real controllers that take interaction beyond what even Daydream can do?

"Consumer adoption is going to be driven by mobile, and HTC is making sure they help can both forward and participate in that growth", Llamas said.

Hirshberg said that he's "never been more excited either creatively or commercially about our three-year Call of Duty slate". Meanwhile, head over to the official Steam page for Infinite Warfare to see what all of the complaints have been about.

Having split off its virtual reality business into its own separate entity past year, HTC is making a big drive for virtual reality in 2017. Have any of you guys tried out a mobile VR headset before?
