Early last week, I wrote about the appearance of the HTC Mini+ software update on the HTC One mini and now it seems that a European launch is indeed confirmed. As Clove wrote on its blog today, the British online shop is already accepting pre-orders, even if a launch date is yet not confirmed. Clove describe the HTC Mini+ as a "a Bluetooth Media Handset that can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth and be used as a smaller and more comfortable handset on which to take telephone calls". Furthermore, the product page highlights, that it built-in CIR (consumer infrared) allows you to control the TV and your HTC Media Link HD with the HTC Mini+". That's exactly the case I've also seen described with the HTC One Mini HTC TV update.
As said, Clove is already accepting pre-orders and the HTC Mini+ is set to be priced at £64.99 including UK VAT, or £54.16 excluding taxes.
