HTC has made an official announcement this afternoon regarding the HTC Rhyme, known as the HTC Bliss by codename. We can confirm that we are expecting the first stock of the Rhyme to be available on October 8th. We will confirm a price shortly and make it available to pre-order on the Clove website.
The Rhyme is a handset that is tailored towards the female audience, coming complete with a glowing ‘charm cable’ that alerts the user of incoming messages, calls and updates. Other accessories available for HTC’s new device include a sports armband, docking station and Bluetooth headset. The main features of the HTC Rhyme are as follows:
- Android Gingerbread 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.5
- 3.7” WVGA display
- 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash
- 1GHZ single-core processor

HTC has already released several demo videos for the Rhyme, which was unveiled at a New York Press event a few hours ago. Checkout the glowing charm video below.
