Verizon Wireless customers can get the world's first handset with support for both Google Daydream VR and Tango AR for US$648, but there is also the choice to go with 24 monthly payments of US$27 each.

Asus introduced the 5.7-inch ZenFone AR back in January, during this year's edition of the well-known CES trade show. Sadly, it took a while for it to reach the US, but now this handset with support for Google Tango and Daydream is now finally available via Verizon Wireless.

In addition to the AR- and VR-related capabilities, the ZenFone AR comes with a strong set of specs - a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 6 GB RAM (according to Verizon, but the regular model has 8 GB), 128 GB internal storage and microSD support, a 3,300 mAh battery, a QHD AMOLED display, and a 23 MP main camera, next to two more next to it that take care of the motion tracking and depth sensing duties.

Unfortunately, the ZenFone AR comes to the US as a Verizon exclusive device, so those who do not like this carrier will have to keep waiting. Verizon customers can get it for US$648 down or on a device payment plan that involves 24 monthly payments of US$27 each.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
