HTC Brings Accessories Galore For The HTC One M8

March 25, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

If you’re planning on picking up a brand new HTC One M8 now that it’s officially available, HTC wants to make sure that you have a good head start at properly accessorizing your brand new phone. Dot View cases were just the beginning as HTC has made sure to not only bring forward some new accessories for the M8, but they have also updated some older ones that were released with last years HTC One, to work with the new device this year. Our personal favorite is the HTC Mini+. It looks like a cordless house phone, but that’s neither here nor there. Once you’re ready and have chosen where you’ll want to get your device from, there is a myriad of new accessories to choose from to go with it.

Of course you’ve already seen the Dot View cases, which are up on HTC’s online store as of now for $50, and they aren’t a bad idea if you want a functional case that provides a similar experience to that of the Samsung S-View flip covers. You can’t buy the Dot View cases just yet, but we’d imagine they’ll be available to purchase soon, and perhaps even sometime today. HTC is also offering two other types of cases to cover and protect your device so as to keep that beautiful brushed metal finish looking nice and smooth. The Double Dip case is making a comeback in the form of a new M8 compatible version, along with a standard flip cover case that doesn’t have the dots on the front for the quick glances at information.

Among those accessories we already listed, the HTC Fetch bluetooth phone tracker will work the M8 now, and the battery bar has been updated to work with the M8 as well. Although we’re not sure if HTC had to really do anything to update the battery bar for compatibility. Besides the Dot View flip cover case, the other new accessory that will be available is the BoomBass bluetooth speaker cube, which is said to be small and portable and support NFC tap to connect, and provide a decent amount of battery life for continuous playback use. HTC will also have car kit accessories available for the M8 so you can dash-mount or windshield-mount the device if you need to for things like GPS navigation. So far we have a price on the Dot View case which we stated above, but we haven’t heard of an official price on the BoomBass speaker cube from HTC just yet. However it seems to be up on Amazon for about $114. Links below.
