Though every time we talk about the HTC Rhyme we mention it is designed especially for women, neither Verizon nor HTC mentioned anything about what kind of people it’s targeted at. Anyway, the phone went on stores today and now it can be purchased for $199.99.
The price is more expensive than we expected, because it is difficult to call the Rhyme a high-end smartphone, but there are three stylish and innovative accessories making the price reasonable. I mean the headphones, the charging docking station, and the Charm call indicator accessory.
Other features include a 3.7-inch S-LCD capacitive touchscreen, 4GB of internal memory, 768MB of RAM, an 8GB chip included in the box, a 5MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash, a 1GHz processor and a 1600mAh battery. The Rhyme runs Android 2.3.4 with the latest version of HTC Sense UI, v. 3.5.
The carrier didn’t change its usual conditions, so consumers have to sign a two-year contract with the carrier. Truly, the phone may seem expensive, but we must remember that its really unique.
