Google Firebombs All New Phone Sales: No “Daydream-Ready” Ones

Existing Phones Unlikely to Qualify as ‘Daydream Ready’, Says Google, VR Fans Should Wait to Upgrade

“I can tell you that there will most likely not be any ‘retroactively’ Daydream-ready phones,” Bavor says. “We want to hold a very high quality bar, and for that to happen all the components need to be just right. So, to VR fans, I would say, hold off for a few months to get your next phone… and get a Daydream-ready phone.”

Well what the hell does “a few months” even mean?

Is the Axon 7 Daydream-ready or not?

And this kick in the head:

The company hasn’t made publicly available the precise Daydream Ready specifications which make a smartphone eligible

So how are buyers supposed to judge?

Asking us to wait for “Daydream Ready” stickers to appear in ads and on packaging is ridiculous. In what way would the Axon 7 not be powerful enough for Daydream?

Google needs to get specific. Until they do, their partner sales will suffer as buyers wait.
