Back towards the end of the first week of October, HTC held their ‘Double Exposure’ event in New York. This was clearly a play on camera abilities and as such, it was not too much of a surprise that the event was designed to promote a couple of HTC camera offerings. These came in the form of the HTC Desire EYE along with a suite of HTC software. Not to mention, a rather interesting addition to the adventure camera hardware world in the form of the RE camera.
The RE camera is a small on-the-go, GoPro like camera, which packs a 16 megapixel camera. However, it also seemed to pack quite the price tag too, with the device launching around the $200 marker. Not long afterwards though, HTC embarked on their weekly Tuesday price cut deals and one of those was the dropping of the RE camera down to $99. Effectively on sale at half price. However, this was a limited time/stock thing and soon enough the price rose back up to its full price tag.
Well, if you missed the earlier opportunity to pick up the RE camera at the much-reduced price, then it looks like the chance has arisen again. Best Buy are currently selling the RE camera at $99, which certainly makes the device a much more attractive proposition. The last time Best Buy had the RE at this price was back towards the end of November. So you might be waiting a good few months before you see the price drop this low again if you decide not to pick it up in its current sale. Not to mention, that since the last sale (very recently, in fact) the RE camera has been updated to offer users the ability to stream content directly to YouTube. Not to mention, Best Buy are currently offering the RE at the reduced price in all three colors (red white and blue). So, all in all, for $99, not a bad deal.
