AT&T is just about ready to welcome three new HTC devices in its product portfolio in addition to Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge, Motorola’s Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch R.
The trio consists of an upper mid-range Android smartphone, a high-end Windows Phone and a quirky but action-ready point and shoot camera.
With a selfie-friendly 13 MP front-facing camera and an equally as capable 13 MP rear snapper, the Eye starts at a relatively affordable $149.99 with a two-year contract. The 5.2 incher runs Android 4.4 out the box, and packs quad-core Snapdragon 801 processing power, sprinkled on top with 2 GB RAM multitasking.
One M8 for Windows is costlier, despite not being as selfie-obsessed. The S801/2 GB RAM configuration is a perfect match for Desire Eye’s specs, but unlike the plasticky Android soldier, Microsoft’s mercenary comes with a full-metal shield. Available on Verizon already, and rumored to be on its way to Sprint in the near future as well, the “W8” goes for $199.99 with pacts, and $669.99 contract-free.
The RE GoPro rival, endowed with a 16 megapixel sensor, 146 degree wide-angle lens, water protection and “effortless” smartphone integration, is priced at $199.
All three gadgets go on sale November 7 online and in retail stores.
