Cancer Awareness Month is going full throttle and HTC simply couldn’t stay out of the loop. The Taiwanese manufacturer is not only donating $25,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in an effort to eradicate breast cancer. As it goes with these social struggles, though, they are not trying to do it all alone. HTC urges its customers to support in a few ways.
For starters, the phone maker is trying to lure its customers into donating whatever cash they can to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They have a link for it in their dedicated web page, where you can also find a few other goodies. Customers can help promote awareness by buying one of HTC’s pink cases, which are all offered on a 30% discount right now.
Those itching for something a little more interesting can also purchase a limited edition, all-pink HTC One M9. These devices will definitely stand out in the crowd, and if you want to make your support more visible it’s also possible to get a phone with a pink ribbon painted on the back.
Either version of the device is priced at $649. This is not exactly a deal, but you would be putting your money behind a good cause. And it’s a plus if you just so happen to like the color! If that’s not enough of an incentive, you should also consider that HTC is throwing in a free pink Dot View case and $100 in Google Play Store credit. That would be a $150 value! Of course, you also get free ground shipping. The offer is available only until the end of the month and sales close on October 31st at 11:59 PT (while supplies last).
Are any of you thinking of getting one of these? The HTC One M9 may look awesome in pink, but that is not its only lure; it happens to be a great handset. The device features a 5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 20 MP rear camera, a 4 MP front shooter, a 2840 mAh battery and a design that is second to none.
