You've seen notification window technology before, but this is something else altogether. Meet Dot View - an ingenious new solution from HTC for receiving notifications with your case cover still closed. Hundreds of perforations allow your display to relay information to you through the case cover, so you can respond to calls, alarms and calendar alerts and see notifications without opening the case. Stylish dot matrix retro look and design Not only is Dot View brilliant in terms of function, it's also brilliant in terms of form. Remember those dot matrix displays on machines, clocks, railway departure indicators etc.? You will be filled with feelings of nostalgia when you view your notifications in this style. Full front and rear protection? Case closed! That is to say, you don't have to open your case on the move if you do not wish to, therefore your HTC Smartphone is fully protected front and rear.
