Well folks, this last few weeks there has been wild speculation about the launch of HTC’s new camera attachment. Is it a small periscope like device as the previous leaked images suggested. Does it have a 16 MP camera? Does it have a viewing screen so you can actually see what you are shooting. Well no more riddles or rumors. The device has now been officially unveiled and launched at HTC’s live ‘Double Exposure’ event.
First up it is simply being referred to as ‘RE’ and yes it is a small periscope like device as previously noted in the leaked images. The RE does come with a sixteen MP camera and is specifically designed as a one-handed device, employs a single button operation and activation. According to HTC this is the perfect compliment to “your weekday travels and weekend adventures”.
So when can you get it? Well, the device is already up and running and ready to be pre-ordered now from its own dedicated site. The price of the device is listed at $199.99 and comes in white and orange colored options. It is also worth noting that the pre-order site also states that you can pre-order the device from Best Buy. Not only that but according to the listing there is a special Navy colored edition of the RE which will only be available through Best Buy. However, it is also worth noting that the Best Buy link currently does not link to the RE. So if you are planning on pre-ordering through Best Buy you will have to wait for the link to go live. If however Best Buy is not your route then head over to the official site and pre-order now by clicking here. So there you go. The RE is alive, confirmed and ready for pre-ordering. How do we like it? First impressions? Happy to pay $200 for it? Whatever your thoughts get it touch and let us know.
