[New App] HTC's Dot View Case For The One M8 Gets Its Own App In The Play Store

HTC has apparently dived head-first into a decentralized software support model. Translation: they're throwing everything they possibly can onto the Play Store, presumably so they don't have to wait for a full carrier update to tweak or improve their various Sense apps. The latest one to land in the Play Store is HTC Dot View, the support app for the interesting Dot View case, a cover that puts a perforated design to use.

HTC Posts A Bunch Of Official First Look Videos Showing Off The M8's Camera And Other Features

Today's the HTC One M8's big day, and new shots and videos of the handset keep pouring in. HTC has now shared three "First Look" clips to its YouTube account that primarily focus on the phone's camera.

This first video is the most general of the bunch. It touches on the M8's metal unibody design, Motion Launch (answer the phone by lifting it to your ear), and a few camera editing features.

AT&T, Sprint, And Verizon HTC One M8s Are Now Available Online, With The Big Red Also Offering A BOGO Deal

Rather impressively, the HTC One M8 is now available online in the US from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless. Pricing doesn't deviate too much among them, but there is enough variance to make it worth shopping around for anyone who isn't already tied down.

Verizon is making the best offer here. Price wise, the carrier will let go of the M8 for $199.99 with a two-year agreement, $25.22 a month with Verizon Edge, and $599.99 without a contract (which, by the way, is $100 less than the Google Play Edition and the lowest contract-free price of the three carriers).
