HTC 10 Kitchen Shot

The new HTC 10 is definitely one of the better releases in the company’s history. However at $699 and up retail price, not everyone can clear the space in their budget to get the sharp-bezeled unibody wonderphone. To that end, HTC is currently giving a few users the chance to win a free unit and the rules are simple. Snap a selfie (it probably won’t hurt if you use one of HTC’s previous models like the A10 below), send it over, you’re entered to win a free HTC 10…

HTC's failed Facebook phone

HTC’s failed Facebook phone

Because apparently it’s what the world needs, HTC is reportedly developing a phone that will be marketed as the “ultimate selfie phone.” According to the normally reliable evleaks, the device is codenamed Eye and will be coming to AT&T with a fourth quarter release. Other details are still sparse, but the big thing is, it’s a sefie phone, capable of taking the ultimate selfie.

Back in 2011, HTC released the ChaCha, better known as the Facebook phone, that failed miserably. It appears, more than two years later, that the company learned absolutely nothing with that device and is going to continue to make gimmicky phones that no one will buy.

Nevertheless, if you, for some reason, want a phone that’s capable of taking the ultimate selfie and other phones just don’t work well enough for you, wait until Q4 for the HTC Eye. It’s unclear what the device will have that makes it better for selfies than other devices, but presumably we’ll see a few leaks between now and the launch to tell us.

But first….let me take a selfie.
