Is HTC Planning an Excursion into GoPro Territory?

By Gary Cutlack on at

New rumours regarding the content of HTC's imaging-themed event have emerged, with sources suggesting it's about to reveal some sort of Bluetooth GoPro competitor to enable wide-angle remote capture via a paired mobile.

According to a Bloomberg staff member, the HTC offering will be "rugged", with a wide-angle lens, Bluetooth connectivity and a 16-Megapixel sensor. If, by using a paired phone to store captures and display the results, it can be substantially cheaper than the GoPro, it may stand a small chance of being something other than a novelty buy for existing HTC enthusiasts.
