Looks like HTC is getting into the accessories business — well, at least making a bigger push into it. Now that they’ve launched their One line across multiple carriers and countries around the world, it’s time to dress up those sexy devices in some stylish cases, starting with the One S. It’s been talked about time, and time again in Android circles. Probably the most lustworthy feature in a phone isn’t the display, it’s not battery life or even “teh corez.” Ever since the introduction of the HTC EVO 4G almost 2 years ago to this day, the world has been clamoring for a… the kickstand.
Well, for HTC One S users, it seems Peter Chou and Co are bringing their dreams a little closer to reality with these stylish, protective cases for the One S featuring that oft requested kickstand. The case itself is a plastic hard shell case with soft touch finish ($25) and comes with the optional, spring-loaded aluminum kickstand version for $40. Not much protection across the top/bottom and front, but that’s often the price we pay for added pleasure.
HTC also revealed plans for a variety of TPU cases (my personal favorite form of protection) for the HTC One X which should be made available around the same time as these One S versions. HTC says, “soon.” Anyone thinking of picking these up?
