“Yes, smartphones are important, but to create a natural extension to other connected devices like wearables and virtual reality is more important,” Cher Wang, CEO HTC
HTC showcased the second generation developer kit, Vive Pre, at CES in Las Vegas. This step for releasing the pre orders date for HTC Vive is because of the price release of its competitor Oculus Rift Price release.
