The HTC One M8 offers quite an array of accessories

The HTC One M8 offers quite an array of accessories
If you were a fan of the accessories that HTC offered for the original One (M7), then you'll be pretty happy to know that essentially all of those accessories will be updated to support the new HTC One (M8), at least those that need updating. This means that at launch, the HTC One (M8) will have a pretty impressive array of accessories from which to choose.

Just like last year, HTC will be offering: the Double Dip case, which will allow you to mix and match case pieces with up to four color combinations; the Flip case, which will offer various color options with the flip cover to protect the screen; the Battery Bar, to allow you to charge the device on the go (although early indications make that seem unnecessary); the Car Kit, to help you mount your device to your car's dash; the Fetch, which will help you find your phone nearby, or take a remote picture; and the Mini+, which is essentially a dumbphone for your smartphone.

But, there are a couple new additions to the accessory lineup. The most interesting is the new Dot View case, which will show old school style dot notifications for time, weather, and caller ID, even when the case is closed. This means that you can get info without having to unlock your device, or even open the flip cover. There is also a new BoomBass Bluetooth speaker cube, which is said to be small enough to fit in your hand, and offers NFC tap-to-connect. It should offer somewhere between 6 and 9 hours of music playback between charges. 

No word yet on pricing for the new accessories, but considering the original Flip case was priced at $39.99, we'd expect the Dot View case to be a bit more expensive than that. *Update* The Dot View case has arrived on HTC's website and it is listed at $50, but it isn't available for purchase just yet.

The dot case really looks awesome. Elegant and useful.

Someone knows how does it power? does it plug to some pogo pins on the One?

There is holes in the cover to allow backlight from the screen.

I thought about that too... but doesn't that drain the battery of a regular LCD screen? It does not seem to have AMOLED tech, right?

It is basically turning the whole display On just to be filtered by pretty holes on the case?... then I rather have a transparent lid

It's a new type Of IPS, less power hungry, but anyways, the display is virtually all on (IPS screens need to be on in order to cast black within the pixel's).

Can't see developer edition there (maybe cause I'm outside the US and internet became more trashy after they started with the annoying region blocks) But I'll be in for One, even with the disappointment of the camera. Can't say I didn't think of Z1 Compact too, but Z1 is taking way too long to come officially to the US. And the One has this beautiful yet useful cover too :)

If I order this phone I too will be buying this cover. Does it use led or something else?
