Virtual reality is the next big thing, with uses for VR going way beyond gaming – it could be used for socialising, or even work. Virtual reality opens doors to situations previously impossible, like a surgeon being able to operate on a patient on the other side of the world by popping on a headset and VR-enabled controllers. HTC isn’t alone either, as the Oculus Rift  and  PlayStation VR  are now on sale too. Here, we summarise all you need to know about the HTC Vive headset including the latest accessories, UK pricing, release date and spec.  Read next:   HTC Vive review

So, when will we be able to buy the HTC Vive? When the HTC Vive was originally announced, HTC claimed that a small number of consumer units would be available to purchase before the end of 2015. Of course, as we all know, that didn’t happen. Rumours then surfaced suggesting that the HTC Vive would “premiere” on 8 December 2015, according to HTC’s Product Commercialisation Manager Bartosz Zuk, who confirmed the date with Polish media sources. However, there were issues regarding its authenticity, as it wasn’t clear whether Zuk was referencing the release date of the headset, or an event announcing it.

Turns out, that was a dud too. HTC took to its blog in December 2015 to ‘clear up speculation and misinformation’ and announced that “ We will be starting the new year by making an additional 7,000 units available to developers, with pre-orders from the end of February followed by commercial availability in April 2016. ”

Yesterday T-Mobile COO Mike Sievert teased that a big announcement was imminent, and now we know exactly what he was hinting at.

Digits is a new service from T-Mobile that lets you use the same phone number across devices. This means that you can use the same number across multiple internet-connected devices, including phones, tablets, PCs, and smartwatches, and your calls and texts will appear from the same number.

Digits will also let you use multiple numbers on the same device, with the goal of killing the need to carry a work phone and a personal phone.
