While the device in question has been running around the Internet as the HTC Bliss for a few months now, the manufacturer has finally decided to pull the curtain off their brand new, accessory-focused device, and have changed the name. It’s now known as HTC Rhyme, and just as we’ve heard in the past, it is indeed coming to Verizon here soon. It will also be launched in Europe and Asia next month.
The device itself features a 3.7-inch WVGA display, with a resolution of 480×800. It has a 5MP camera around back, 768MB of RAM, and a 1GHz processor. It will be running Android 2.3 right out of the box, and it will indeed be featuring HTC’s Sense 3.5 user interface, which has broken cover in the past few weeks thanks to leaks. The accessories are really what matter here, though. There’s a charm that you plug into the 3.5mm headphone jack, and when you do it will light up when you get a text message or phone call. Basically, it’s a glorified notification light. There’s also the sports arm band, the Bluetooth headset, and the plugless charging dock. All of these things share the same purple color scheme as the Rhyme itself, which means you’ll be color coordinated all day long.
The device will be launching for Verizon on September 29th for $199.
