Offering a smart, elegant unibody design with every detail carefully crafted to deliver a unique sensory experience, the Android-powered HTC Rhyme for Verizon Wireless features a fast 1 GHz processor and beautiful 3.7-inch multi-touch display. In addition to Android, it also offers the next-generation HTC Sense user interface experience, which includes quicker startup times from hibernation mode as well as a consolidated view of your favorite social networking sites.
The stylish HTC Rhyme.
With the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, you'll get seamlessly integrated access to a wide range of Google Mobile Services, including Gmail, YouTube, Google Search, and Google Maps, as well as access to more than 250,000 apps available to download from Android Market.
It comes with three accessories so you can immediately set up your system. When you open the box, you'll find a pair of tangle-free headphones, a multifunctional docking station, and a charm call indicator. The docking station wirelessly charges your phone and activates Dock Mode, making your HTC Rhyme an all-in-one alarm clock, music player, and picture frame. The stylish Charm call indicator goes with anything, and it sits atop your bag and alerts you of incoming calls, missed calls, and messages.
In addition to 3G connectivity, you can also share the built-in Mobile Hotspot via Wi-Fi among up to five devices--laptop, another phone, MP3 player, and more (additional service charge).
The HTC Rhyme has a 5-megapixel rear camera that also captures HD 720p video. Shoot professional-looking portraits with the Portrait scene, which makes skin look smoother without significantly altering other parts of the photo, or capture life on a grand scale with the Panorama scene. When life is in motion, savor it with slow-motion video or capture the perfect moment with Action burst. The phone also includes a front-facing VGA camera for video chat.
Other features include Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, included 8 GB microSD card (with expansion up to 32 GB via optional cards), GPS for navigation and location-based services, full HTML browser with support for Adobe Flash, access to personal and corporate e-mail, and up to 7.3 hours of talk time (see full specs below).
HTC Rhyme Experience
Boasting the latest HTC experience, the Rhyme features a customizable active lockscreen that transforms the lockscreen into a real-time window to the most important information and content, such as social updates, photos, weather or stock updates that are viewed by simply waking up the display.
Additionally, the new active lockscreen becomes a customizable gateway that lets your quickly jump to your most used features--whether it be making a call, sending an e-mail, or taking a picture. For example, the camera can be launched right from the lock screen with a single motion, saving precious seconds when you're trying to capture the action.
The HTC Rhyme weighs 4.77 ounces and measures 4.69 x 2.39 x 0.43 inches. Its 1600 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 7.33 hours (440 minutes) of talk time, and up to 410 hours (17+ days) of standby time. It runs on the CDMA 800/1900 frequencies as well as EV-DO, Rev A 3G frequencies.What's in the Box

Verizon Wireless Services
Reliable 3G Network: With support for the EV-DO high-speed data standard, you'll enjoy fast access to the Internet and Verizon Wireless multimedia services (additional charges applicable), with average download speeds ranging from 400 to 700 Kbps and peak rates up to 2 Mbps. (Learn more about where EV-DO coverage is offered.)
VZ Navigator Capable: With this GPS-enabled phone, you'll be able to access the Verizon Wireless VZ Navigator service (additional charges applicable) for voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions, heads-up alerts, local search of nearly 14 million points of interest in the US (such as landmarks, restaurants and ATMs), and detailed color maps.
Visual Voice Mail: This innovative service enables you to delete, reply, and forward voice mail messages without having to listen to prior messages or voice instructions. Visual Voice Mail is the ideal tool for the busy mobile professional who may need to prioritize which messages he or she listens to first. Features include on-screen access to voice mail message status, save up to 40 messages for 40 days (or archive permanently), create up to 10 different caller ID-based greetings, and reply via call back, text or even voice mail.
VZW Backup Assistant: Automatically back up your mobile contacts to your online address book. If your phone is lost, stolen, or damaged, or you decide to upgrade, easily restore your saved address book to your new phone. You can also add, delete, edit, and print your contacts online and send the changes to your mobile phone.
Android Gingerbread Operating System
The HTC Rhyme runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The HTC Rhyme also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Top Customer Reviews
For the past two weeks, I have been reviewing the newest smartphone from HTC on the Verizon network - The HTC Rhyme. This is the first smartphone that I know of that is squarely marketed at women. When I first saw the TV advertisement for the HTC Rhyme, I was spellbound in front of my TV. The ad shows a woman with 6 arms which is suppose to visualize how the HTC Rhyme's many features work together to make life easy for busy women.
I have found the HTC Rhyme to be a very "smart" smartphone that is stylish and comes with lots of useful accessories. It runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on a powerful 1GZ processor and comes with a 5mp rear facing camera and a VGA front facing camera for making video calls. The phone can also be used as a Mobile Hotspot for up to 5 devices. I have always loved the HTC Sense experience and I particularly loved the interface of the HTC Rhyme where the phone figures out and displays a tab of apps that you use the most. The phone also makes scrolling through the list of apps easier by scrolling a page at a time instead of a row at a time.
5 Cool Features...
This smartphone has a lot of great features, but there are 5 things in particular about the HTC Rhyme that I think women will really love:

Hopefully we can figure out this VM message issue, if not, we will have to try a different phone and I have to now figure out what the Amazon return options are just in case.
11-4-2011 Update: Spent a long time on Verizon tech support, level 2 even, and it seems the problem of the notifications is with the account setup, so not a phone issue. It has been a couple days and they are still working on it, but hopefully this will get resolved.Read more ›
