Samsung’s Gear VR
The consumer version of Samsung’s Gear VR headset is out now and at $99 it’s priced well within reach of the average consumer. Initial response appears to have been great as both Amazon and Best Buy have sold out of inventory right now, though it’s still possible to purchase a unit from Samsung’s website. The company has released a new ad for the Gear VR which demonstrates just how easy the headset makes it to experience content in virtual reality.
This ad is part of Samsung’s “It’s Not a Phone, It’s a Galaxy” series, even with the Gear VR it won’t miss an opportunity to take a swing at Apple. It shows how easy the process is. Just push in the headset, only the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 edge, the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5 are supported, snap on the cover and you’re good to go. It really is that easy. There’s already quite a bit of content available for the Gear VR with Samsung working hard to add more. At $99 this really does make for a very interesting Christmas gift.
