HTC introduces new accessories for their android smartphones

HTC recently made a comeback in the smartphone business with the HTC One, and it seems now they are also planning to put some focus on accessories as well, and they did it by introducing two new bluetooth accessories for their Android smartphones. However, the accessories are probably first-of-their-kind from HTC and a little weird. They are known as the HTC Fetch and HTC Mini+.

htc-mini-plusFetch is a Bluetooth designed clip that goes into your key chain and it helps you in not losing your smartphone. On the other hand, Mini+ connects to your smartphone and lets you take calls without using your smartphone, or you can use it in public and stay “old school”.

htcfetch-100052222-mediumThe way how Fetch works is if you have lost your smartphone and it is in the range of at least 50 feet then you can press a button on Fetch which will make your phone start ringing. It will also start beeping if you are 15 meters away from your phone. It is said to cost around $50.

About the Mini+, it is also a laser pointer and has a IR blaster, so you can use it as a remote control as well. Also, it can be used with PowerPoint presentations so maybe it can bring some HTC style in your business. The device is limited to HTC One Mini, the Butterfly S and the Desire 200 and 500. About price, it is said to cost around $80.

Are you planning to grab any of it? Tell us about your thoughts in the comment box below.

    If mini+ has multipoint, I’ll get one for sure. If not, Sony’s sbh52 seems like a better choice to me (who always carry 2 phones around)

    This is cool, I’ve lost one of my favorite smartphone already and definitely need one of these so it won’t happen again..

    I’d definitely buy the Mini+ IF it wasn’t limited to work with so few phones! I mean really, it doesn’t even work with their flagship phone, the HTC One!?!? If it worked with more phones, say starting with the One X/Evo LTE and newer, then I think it would be a hit. The fact that it has such a small possibility for a user base, I think that it will flop! When will HTC learn to make their devices/accessories available to a broader range of customers?? The fact that it doesn’t even work with the HTC One tells me that they aren’t trying very hard to meet their current customers wants and needs, and instead trying to push their customers in to buying their newest phones(which do not have specs equivalent to their latest flagship), means that this device is simply destined to fail. This accessory should at least work with their most recent flagship, at very minimum. This really is a shame, as HTC is my favorite phone company (even though I now have a Note 2) and I would really like to see them climb out of this hole that they are in. To do this though, they’ve got to make their products available to a wider range of potential customers! Otherwise they are simply driving the nails in to their own coffin. A company with excellent products and opportunities, failing to deliver on a regular basis. I’ve been an HTC customer since Windows Mobile, and I’ve owned 8 HTC phones over the years. I bought nothing but HTC phones for many years. In fact, the Note 2 is my first Android phone that isn’t HTC! It’s honestly very sad to watch the companies future go down the drain, right in front of my eyes…

      True true! I’m interested with the Mini+ because it fulfills a lot of my needs. Sucks that it’s limited to a few phones.
