More HTC Phones To Receive Ice Cream Sandwich

Well it appears that HTC isn’t done reviewing and determining which devices will be receiving the update to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Today they took to Facebook to announce some additional devices that will be updated to the latest version of Android. Last week they announced a group of devices that were going to be updated, and Motorola announced more devices of its own this week. As much as we like to see phone makers announcing that they will be updating their devices, we do wish they’d tell us when we’ll be getting the latest and greatest.

Todays news from HTC confirms that they will be updating the Rezound, the DROID Incredible 2, the HTC Thunderbolt and the HTC Rhyme. Also HTC will be updating the HTC Raider, for Rogers and Bell networks.

It’s nice to see HTC finally acknowledge the Thunderbolt especially considering it was the first 4G LTE phone for Verizon and a lot of people jumped on the opportunity to purchase it (cough cough, me) so knowing that it’s on the upgrade path is good news. Interesting to see the Rhyme on the list, mostly because it’s a funny purple phone marketed towards “women” the others on the list are pretty much straight forward.

So what do you think are you happy with the additions to the list? Is your device now on the list?

HTC Rhyme smartphone now available from Verizon Wireless

The HTC Rhyme, HTC and Verizons smartphone that is targeted towards a female audience , is now available for purchase from Verizon Wireless. For $199.99 and a new two-year contract will get you a mildly updated Desire S complete with tangle-free headphones, a wireless docking station, and the glowing charm notification dongle. The Rhyme sports Android 2.3 Gingerbread and HTC’s new Sense 3.5 interface, with new widgets and a redesigned app tray. As we’ve mentioned before there are plenty of better options in Verizons line-up if you’re looking to upgrade your phone so we recommend passing on this one and spending your hard-earned money on a more top of the line device that will cost you the same.

HTC Rhyme Officially Announced, Verizon Exclusive Release On September 29

 

As we expected HTC announced a phone today, unfortunately it’s just that, a phone. The phone they announced unsurprisingly is the HTC Rhyme, the Verizon Android device targeted specifically at the finer sex. The device itself isn’t bad but it’s certainly no monster phone that a lot of power users would like. It is sporting HTC’s new Sense 3.5 skin which is nice. All in all it’s a mid level phone, sporting a 1 Ghz processor, 5 mp rear-facing camera and 3.7″ WVGA screen. The real sell on this phone is that it comes bundled with three accessories, the “Charm”, dock, and headphones.

I like the idea of including the dock and headphones but the charm to me seems like a stretch for a user and an easy thing to lose but I’m sure some people will live by it. For what it’s worth there are plenty of better phones on Verizons network that are better suited to get your $199 and 2 year contract commitment, but everyone makes their own choices now don’t they.

Press Release:


HTC UNVEILS HTC RHYME™, AN ELEGANT
 NEW PHONE EXPERIENCE

HTC Rhyme integrates sleek new design, a refreshed HTC Sense™ experience and a family of integrated accessories with advanced smartphone features
HTC Rhyme to be available globally in October; exclusively in the U.S. from Verizon Wireless in the coming weeks

NEW YORK CITY – September 20, 2011 – HTC Corporation, a global designer of mobile devices, today unveiled HTC Rhyme™, a new kind of phone created for people who require advanced features but want a phone that is sleek and fits seamlessly into their lives. The result is the elegant HTC Rhyme that delivers a fresh approach of integrating distinct colors, HTC Sense™ and complementary accessories for a natural personal experience.

“HTC Rhyme represents an entirely new approach, based on recognition that there is a substantial group of consumers who want their phones to be more personal and complimentary to every moment of their day,” said Scott Croyle, vice president of design, HTC Corporation. “HTC Rhyme is focused on delivering this through a fresh new style and experience that includes a family of innovative accessories like the HTC Rhyme Charm and Docking Station that are meant to naturally integrate into people’s lives.”

Sleek, Fresh and Stylish
HTC Rhyme offers a smart, elegant unibody design with every detail carefully crafted to deliver a unique sensory experience. The materials, the curves, and the dimensions are all designed to feel great in your hand, without sacrificing advanced features. HTC Rhyme comes in three colors: Clearwater, Hourglass and Plum, the color Verizon Wireless will be offering in the U.S.

“The HTC Rhyme is an exciting new approach to the mobile lifestyle that integrates hardware, software and accessories in a unique way,” said Marni Walden, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. “We believe this clean, intuitive experience and signature design is a testament to HTC’s ability to interpret what customers have said they want in a mobile device. We are thrilled to offer the HTC Rhyme exclusively on the nation’s largest, most reliable network.”

HTC Sense
HTC Rhyme is not only defined by its soft, simple design and distinct color scheme but by the refreshed HTC Sense experience. This unique twist on HTC Sense carries over the visual language of the hardware design and includes an all-new home screen that provides a clean and uncluttered way to interact with the essentials. The home screen enables quick, uncluttered previews of your appointments, messages or whatever is important to you. HTC selected custom wallpapers to offer a variety of original art to complement the HTC Rhyme experience.

With a beautiful 3.7-inch WVGA, super LCD display and high-quality stereo sound, HTC Rhyme also offers advanced imaging capabilities that begin with its 5-megapixel camera that includes auto focus, power LED flash and instant shutter for capturing those memorable moments whenever they arrive. In addition, the camera features a number of photo-taking and sharing elements, including face detection, which ensures that friends are always in focus, action burst scene, which automatically takes five consecutive shots of a scene, and panoramic mode, which lets users stitch several photos for those larger-than-life views. The HTC Rhyme’s locked home screen can be customized to display the most important content, making it quick and easy to see social updates, photos, snapping a photo or the weather forecast by simply turning on the display.

HTC Rhyme makes entertainment come to life through HTC Watch, which features a wide selection of movies and TV shows that can be downloaded for instant viewing.

Integrated Accessories
HTC Rhyme’s suite of accessories is designed with the same sensory focus in both function and style. Created to help you experience HTC Rhyme as a natural part of your life, the integrated accessories make your phone more personal than ever before.

· HTC Rhyme Docking Station – The Docking Station simultaneously recharges the phone while turning the Rhyme into an alarm clock and music center so you can wake to your favorite songs played directly from the built-in Bluetooth capable speakers.

· HTC Rhyme Charm – The Charm is an innovative approach for discretely alerting you to incoming calls or messages while the HTC Rhyme is deep in your bag. The Charm is a small light-emitting cube that attaches to the phone by a cord that can dangle from your bag and also be used to quickly pull the phone out of your bag. It also makes it easy to find your phone buried in your cluttered purse or backpack.

· HTC Rhyme Sports Armband – The Sports Armband allows you to work out in style while keeping your apps and music close to you.

· HTC Rhyme Tangle Free Headphones – The Tangle Free Headphones take the hassle out of listening to your favorite music.

· HTC Rhyme Bluetooth® Headset – The wireless headset follows the same design cues as the phone itself and enables for easy hands free use.

· HTC Rhyme Bluetooth® Car Speaker – The wireless speaker clips onto sun visor in your car for easy and safe driving.

Availability
HTC Rhyme will be available in the coming weeks in the United States, exclusively with Verizon Wireless, and across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific in October. In the U.S., the Docking Station, Tangle Free Headphones and Charm will be included in the box.
