HTC Rhyme: Verizon price high considering mediocre specs

Lately we have seen lots of smartphones arrive which are slightly more impressive than the last model, however HTC has taken a different approach with a new smartphone which was unveiled yesterday – this is the HTC Rhyme and we can’t work out whether it is a genius idea or lackluster.

If you go over the tech specs with a fine tooth comb here you won’t be blown away by its 3.7-inch display, 5 megapixel camera or 1GHz single-core processor. Also as this is Verizon-bound you will notice that there is no 4G LTE connectivity, which is a shock considering it will cost $199.99 as part of a two-year deal (according to Engadget), so why should you not be put off?

Well, this is going to be regarded as a premium smartphone and below you can see some of the accessories which have been designed specifically for the HTC Rhyme, we are currently unsure about which accessories will come with the HTC Rhyme as standard – however we are planning to speak about these accessories in more detail later today.

If you check out the product overview over at you will see that HTC is pushing the Rhyme’s stylish, slender unibody design, its best-in-class camera and its accessories which will ‘fit your life’, at the bottom of this post we have embedded a video which introduced you to the HTC Rhyme – we are just a little sceptical about how this smartphone fits your life more than current HTC smartphones such as the HTC Sensation. Perhaps lots of accessories will come with the HTC Rhyme as standard – this could be its real claim to fame.

Are you won over by the HTC Rhyme? Let us know in the comments section below.
