A few days ago we told you all about the HTC Rhyme specs, its Verizon price and its O2 release date – in these posts we briefly mentioned some pretty cool accessories which are unique to this new smartphone, today we will look at these in more detail.
Before talking about these accessories we must point out that the HTC Rhyme seems to be a smartphone which will appeal to females more than males, it has an elegant design and a quite feminine purple finish – also one of the accessories, the HTC Charm, is designed to be used when your smartphone is in your handbag.
Let’s start with two pretty self-explanatory accessories, these are the HTC Rhyme Bluetooth headset and the Bluetooth car speaker – HTC heavily promoted that these are clean and tidy ‘cable-less’ accessories which allow you to talk when you are on the go with your hands free. Full details have not been revealed, however you can get a glimpse of both products below.
The accessory which we like the most is the docking station, instead of a charger cable which looks messy and gets tangled up easily you can charge your phone by your bed at night neatly and easily with this docking station (see bwlow), not only will it charge your HTC Rhyme, but it also converts it into an alarm clock and music centre – we think it looks the part to.
Finally the most innovative and unique accessory is the HTC Charm, this plugs into your HTC Rhyme (via the 3.5mm jack plug we presume) and dangles out of the top of your handbag, the charm on the end glows when you get a message / phonecall and you can simply pull on the cable to get the smartphone out of your bag easily, rather than having to rummage around – my partner needs this!
Below we have embedded a video showing you all of these accessories in a bit more detail, sadly we have no idea of what accessories will come with the HTC Rhyme as standard and which we will have to pay extra for – we think all of the accessories which we have spoken about in this post will be optional extras – therefore we are a little worried about pricing. As and when we hear more on the situation we will keep you posted. You can order your HTC Rhyme from Verizon via this link.
