You won't have to wait much longer to see whether or not Google's Daydream View headset is a viable contender to the likes of Gear VR. Google has announced that its virtual reality wearable will reach both the Google Store and retail in five countries (the US, Canada, UK, Germany and Australia) on November 10th. In the US, it'll be available for $79 through Best Buy and Verizon. British buyers can track it down for £69 at Carphone Warehouse or EE, and Canadians can pick it up for $99 at Best Buy, Bell, Rogers or Telus.

You'll need a compatible phone (such as Google's own Pixel or Pixel XL) to use the Daydream View, but it promises to open up the world of mobile VR. Right now, your choices in that realm are largely limited to either basic viewers like Google Cardboard or Samsung's proprietary Gear VR -- you could soon see interactive VR on a wide range of Android devices. It's also important to note that Google doesn't have a monopoly on Daydream headsets, either. The aim is to create a whole ecosystem, not to corner the market.
