This year’s IFA Berlin Trade Show looks to be very popular with companies working on virtual reality products. Among the companies planning to make an appearance at one of Europe’s biggest consumer electronics fairs is PC hardware manufacturer Dell, who are planning on bringing its Dell Windows 10 Mixed Reality device, along with a range of VR-capable PC hardware.
The Dell Mixed reality headset is planned to be released sometime in October, 2017 and will sit alongside other Windows 10 compatible headsets from ASUS, Acer, Lenovo and HP. The developer units from HP and Acer have gone up for order on the Microsoft Store already.
The Dell version of the device will feature a 1440 x 1440 LCD display, a front-hinged visor and an anti-stain coating to keep the white device clean. Full technical specifications are yet to be released, but the price is expected to be £349.99 (USD) for the headset, with motion controllers costing an extra $99.99. This would make the device more expensive device than either the Acer headset at $299 or the HP version at $329.
PAX West is also on Dell’s mind, where they will be bringing VR-ready hardware such as the Dell Inspiron 15 700 Gaming Notebook, which boasts a 4GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 powering the graphics, with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and a 15.6” HD display. Dell subsidiary Alienware will also be present, presenting its new curved gaming monitor and its line of Alienware Aurora desktop PCs
