Now that the HTC One S and One X are available from T-Mobile and AT&T, HTC has launched two new videos on its YouTube channel which highlight two of the accessories that they initially announced at Mobile World Congress. The HTC Car and HTC Media Link HD accessories enhance your HTC One’s multimedia capabilities by allowing easy wireless integration with your car stereo and any HDMI enabled display.
HTC Car is a Bluetooth adapter which plugs into your car’s 3.5mm auxiliary input and detects your phone automatically to stream your music through your car stereo. To make your hands-free experience even better, you can buy HTC’s car dock which is made specifically for your handset and automatically launched car mode on your device.
The new HTC Media Link HD does beyond DNLA media streaming by enabling full wireless screen mirroring when connected to an HDMI enabled display. HTC Media Link HD allows you to stream your music, pictures, presentations and movies by using three fingers to swipe up on your display. But the real magic starts when you start up a movie. Rather than being forced to put down your phone so that everyone can enjoy a full length film, the HTC Media Link HD allows you to press the home button and continue using your phone and even make a call or two while the movie continues to play on the big screen.
AT&T has the HTC Media Link ($90) and the HTC One X car dock ($60) listed on its website, but neither of them are currently in stock. We’ve seen a few of the HTC One S accessories ilisted in T-Mobile’s inventory system, but none of them are yet available on T-Mobile’s website. If you simply can’t wait for AT&T and T-Mobile to get their acts together, you can always find everything you need on HTC’s official accessory store.
