Did they ever relase the pricing info for the consumer version?
It'll likely be only slightly more affordable, if it comes. HTC is focusing almost entirely on enterprise lately, with the exception of Viveport.
It’ll probably be the same. As Zachary said, HTC seems to not care about customer devices as much anymore.
