    HTC has what is arguably the best virtual reality headset on the market with the HTC Vive. In fact it is pretty obvious that they have sunk most of their eggs in the VR headset basket over the past several years. All this work may actually pay off for HTC. They are possibly about to go mobile with their VR division this year. HTC CFO "Chia-Lang Chang" confirmed that HTC is working on a Mobile VR headset that isn't just a phone in a headset like what we have seen with the Gear VR from Samsung.

    The HTC Vive is a high end product that requires a powerful PC, and it is more than most of the market is willing to buy. HTC is looking to provide a similar high quality VR experience in a more mobile friendly way. Hopefully the device will have a dedicated display and PC unit built into the headset so you don't have to worry about lugging around a PC in a backpack.

    It is clear HTC make super high quality products that we adore and with a true vision ... the VIVE is already the best of the best VR headphones, and this VR Vive mobile headset will surely be great.

    I really wish they would upgrade the vive with 4k display and eye tracking and not go mobile.eye tracking solves almost all the problems with vr. My rift wasn't that good even with a 1080 Xtreme. Star vr is already out it's 5k, 240 fov, eye tracking but IMAX already bought them all and they probably won't have the same support as vive
