It turns out Verizon is not the only one releasing an HTC One M8 with Windows Phone. Also, Omate and Google are not staying behind!
Verizon took all the fame and glory with today’s announcement of the HTC One M8 for Windows. It was an exclusive launch, but this doesn’t mean it will be an exclusive device. In fact, AT&T has just announced they will also be carrying the novelty device.
Opinion: Sadly, that is all they have to say for now. They simply wanted to take some of Verizon’s thunder, we assume. AT&T says they will announce more on proce and availability at a “later date”.
Omate TrueSmart was a unique device with much to promise, but the manufacturer’s 2014 winner. A new teaser has just shown up, showing the Omate X’s release date as September 1st. The device is being advertised as a more stylish product, offering good looks as well as functionality. There is a bit of an odd situation going on, though. Thise smartwatch is said to come with a $129 price point, easily beating the competition.
Opinion: Omate’s smartwatches are unique in that they function as standalone devices. You can literally make calls with them, but this full functionality often proves to be more confusing than helpful.
Apple may have many camera features, but Google aims to one-up them with an app dedicated solely to taking Photo Sphere images. These are Google’s 360-degree images, which offer a complete view of a specific location.
It works just like the Photo Sphere function on Android, so go get it from the Apple App Store if you want to check it out!
Opinion: Why would Google introduce such an app? Well, Photo Sphere is all about compatibility with Google’s services. Namely, Google Maps. iOS users are an important crowd, and it would only make sense to try and benefit from their contributions.
