Ladies smartphone
HTC officially announced its latest Android based phone, the HTC Rhyme. Almost instantaneously named as the "ladies' smartphone", the HTC Rhyme has quite a few interesting specs and features that will cater to the female part of the market and probably end up being as one of those special Christmas gifts.

Based on the Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon platform, the new HTC Rhyme features Scorpion 1GHz single-core processor paired up with Adreno 205 GPU and 768MB of RAM. The HTC Rhyme will run on Android 2.3 OS backed by HTC's own Sense UI 3.5. It features a 3.7-inch WVGA (800x480) capacitive touchscreen display, 4GB of internal storage paired up with microSD card slot (8GB card included), a 5 megapixel rear and front VGA camera, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, HSDPA and a 1600mAh battery.

The HTC Rhyme will ship with earphones, Bluetooth headset, docking station and a "charm cable" that has a cube, which lights up when message or call is received.

Europe should get the Rhyme in October while the US Verizon should have it as of tomorrow with a US $200 price tag with a 2 year contract. We managed to dig out the European price that should be €479 without contract.
