About HTC Rhyme

Marketing whiz-bang gadgets to girls has always been a bit of a fool’s gambit. The assumption from marketers is that girls want less industrial design, no talk of specs or operating systems, and plenty of media features- cameras, video, music and radio. A budget price never hurts either.

Thankfully in the current smartphone market many high-end components are cheap and easy to pack in, so these phones need not be low-powered or light on hardware. The HTC Rhyme packs plenty of processing power, with a 1GHz…with a fast processor and a decent camera on board. Less impressive is the 4 gigabytes of storage, but that’s where the accessories come in.

The Rhyme comes with a hearty amount of swag in the box, including a velvety pouch to protect from scratches, ‘tangle free’ headphones, a docking station, and a very impressive 8 GB micro SD card. Also included are the requisite USB cables, and a purple charm that lights up when a call or text is coming in.
