HTC's orange RE Camera faces shipping delay; white model due to arrive in mid-November
HTC has reportedly sent an email to those who pre-ordered the orange version of its RE Camera. The missive apparently revealed that due to supply problems, the orange RE Camera will be delayed. Those who ordered the device in that color will be given a 10% price discount for the inconvenience, and will also be allowed to switch to the white model. Or, consumers who want the orange version can wait for it to ship. As a third option, buyers can purchase both orange and white versions of the device, and take 10% off the price for each unit.

The manufacturer says that the white version of its action camera will most likely ship around the middle of this month. The HTC RE Camera website is now offering pre-orders in white only, priced at $199.99. A version of the camera in navy blue, is an exclusive for Best Buy.

When HTC introduced the RE Camera early last month, it made a point of saying that it would be shipping in time for the holidays. Now, it seems that this might not be true for the orange variant of the device. A source inside HTC says that the orange RE Camera could end up being shipped some time in December (which is next month already), or early in 2015.

The RE Camera is ready to take pictures or video as soon as you grip its tube-like body.  The camera does not sport a viewfinder or flash, and your photographic genius is recorded on a microSD card (capacity of the slot is 128GB). With an IP 57 certification, you can drop your RE Camera into no more than 3.2 feet of liquid for as long as 30 minutes, without damage being done to it. An app is available for those using an Android (4.3 or higher) or an iOS device (iOS 7 or greater), and photos and videos can be synced to a phone using Wi-Fi. The camera employs a 16MP sensor with a 146 degree wide angle lens.
