Here are Some of the Rumored Specs for an Upcoming HTC Nexus

Back in April, we saw the first batch of reports surface with possible details of the upcoming Nexus phone or phones from Google. The initial rumors focused on codenames of Marlin and Sailfish as those representing two HTC phones that would take over Google’s Nexus program this year, but few other details accompanied those names. Today, thanks to a report out of Android Police, we may have an early spec list for the supposed smaller of the two phones, the Sailfish(more…)

Poll: Do You Own a VR Headset?

VR, whether you are ready for it or not, is about to be everywhere. What’s that? You thought it already was? Honestly, I don’t think the big VR push has really even begun yet. Sure, we talk a lot about it because a bunch of big name companies are talking about it and it seems to be the next big focus, but a world filled with VR is really only in its infancy, if not pre-infancy.

I say that because the biggest player right now, is Samsung, with its mobile-powered Gear VR headset. Companies with big, stand-alone, PC-powered units, like HTC and Oculus, are just now entering with their more powerful options. Plus, Google has barely finished off announcing its VR platform for Android and Apple hasn’t said a word yet. Samsung should be given lots of credit for being one of the first out of the gate, but when you talk about all of these other players on the verge of entering the game, this really is only the early stages of the beginning.

Still, that doesn’t mean many of you haven’t already jumped into VR. You could have purchased (or been given as a bonus gift) a Gear VR, dropped hundreds on Vive or Rift, or picked up Google Cardboard for a couple of bucks at this point. And that’s where we go for today’s poll. Even though we asked you back in January if you were at all interested in VR (52% said “no”), we now want to know how many of you are already invested in the fun.
