HTC is expected to announce the release date for the One M9 any time now, but there are some treats for those of you sticking with the M8 as well. A new version of the Dot View case app is out, and it has a ton of improvements. Also, games. Yes, games. I don't know why either.
It's no mystery HTC is preparing to announce its latest flagship the One M9 in just a couple of weeks. Naturally, it's time to clear out some inventory space to make way for new products, and that means cutting prices. HTC Hot Deals is running a weekend-long sale on the RE Camera, the One M8, and a selection of custom cases.
We've seen some better deals (for $300, and $350) on the One M8 in the last month, but they've been limited to the AT&T model, and only available as refurbs. Read More
HTC missed its 90-day goal to deliver Android 5.0 upgrades to all owners of the One M8 and One M7. They're very sorry about that. But to give credit where it's due, it does seem like the company is genuinely trying to get its hardware updated as soon as possible. Read More
While we are just starting to see the first hints of Lollipop on the HTC One M8 in the US, the rollout is already underway in other parts of the world. As is customary, HTC is now posting the open source bits of these updates on its developer page. If you want to get a look at the kernel source for the international M8 variants, this is your chance.
HTC was quick to announce Lollipop upgrade plans a few months ago, and today those plans begin to come to fruition. The first large-scale HTC rollout of Android 5.0 is starting today with the unlocked and developer edition One M8.
Update, January 7th: the eBay vendor for this listing has added new stock and lowered the price to $349.99. That's a steal for one of last year's best devices. Grab it while you can.
If you want a high-end phone for a GSM network, this deal will probably beat anything you're likely to find on Black Friday. Right now one eBay seller is unloading a refurbished AT&T version of the HTC One M8 for just $379.99, almost $300 off of the retail off-contract price and a solid eighty bucks cheaper than our previous best One M8 deal.

HTC has offered some great deals as part of it's weekly "hot deals" promo, as well as some questionable ones. This week HTC is offering to knock 20% off the price of any phone purchased from its website. These are the unsubsidized prices, so you're still looking at a few hundred bucks minimum. But hey, a deal is a deal.
Those of you with phones not made by HTC can feel free to continue on to the next post. I'm sorry to have wasted your time... I assume if you are still reading at this point, you own an HTC device. Good, those other phones suck, right? Let's say nasty things about people who own those phones behind their backs. Before that, there's an update to BlinkFeed in the Play Store. Read More
HTC's Dot View case is a cool idea, though the quality of the accessory itself is somewhat suspect. Still, HTC gets points for doing something new. What's more, it turns out the Dot View for the One M8 still has some tricks up its heavily perforated sleeve. There's a Halloween surprise lurking in there.
The Dot View case is able to show notifications and other bits of data by shining light from the screen through the holes in the case. Read More
