Many products are suddenly more expensive in the United Kingdom. Companies are still responding to the rapid valuation change of the Pound Sterling, from Acer to Lenovo to OnePlus. Now, it’s HTC Vive’s turn for a high profile move.
The company has announced that its headset bundle, currently £689, will cost £759 starting August 1. The 10 percent price cut just about matches the fall in the Pound’s value from when the public voted to leave the European Referendum in a non-binding referendum.
One quid was worth about $1.47 before the vote, $1.32 immediately following the outcome and it dipped below the $1.30 in the second week of this month before coming just under $1.32 today.
