HTC revealed its plan to turn Sense feature Zoe into a full-on social network a couple months back. Today, the company announced that the photo and video-sharing app is exiting its open beta, and is available for compatible Android devices (4.3 and above). If you’re in need of a refresher, Zoe lets you turn snapshots and video clips into highlight reels (Zoes) with music included. It also allows your pals to “remix” photos and videos with yours for collaborative efforts that can now be 7, 15 or 30 seconds in length. And as you might expect, Zoe works with footage from the company’s newfangled RE action cam to produce the final product, should the need arise. So what about the iOS app? While the Android faithful can nab the software today, HTC says that the version for Apple’s gadgets will arrive “later this year.” For now, the curious can take a closer look at the iOS app in the gallery down below. %Gallery-slideshow231391%0

The company has posted both a RECamera teaser site and a video (below) which not-so-subtly hint that the adventure-oriented shooter should launch on October 8th, the same day as HTC’s “Double Exposure” media event. While there aren’t many giveaways in the clip, it shows both a swimming pool dive and a wide-angle lens — this is undoubtedly a waterproof device meant to take on the likes of GoPro. There’s nothing here to confirm rumors that the camera will have a 16-megapixel sensor and wireless networking, but you’ll only have to wait a couple of weeks to get the full scoop.

The HTC One M8 running Windows Phone is real, and you need only follow a Verizon URL to prove it. HTC hasn’t yet announced the rumored device, but a photo sitting right on Verizon’s servers seems to confirm that the phone is indeed coming and likely soon. WP Central‘s original report says the “One (M8) for Windows” will be available from Verizon on August 21st. Hardware-wise, it’s probably the same M8 that’s been running Android for a few months now, but this one’s clearly aimed at fans of Microsoft’s OS.
When reached by The Verge, HTC declined to comment on the photo’s authenticity. The company is hosting a press event on August 19th, and it’s likely we’ll hear confirmation of the new, aluminum-clad Windows Phone on that date. The…0
