HTC Rhyme ADR6330VW coming to Verizon on Sept 29?
One month ago we learned about four new phones coming to Verizon that was listed on their MAP sheet. It showed the Motorola DROID BIONIC XT875 (which comes out on September 8), the LG Revolution 2 VS920, HTC Vigor ADR 6425LVW, and a HTC ADR 6330VW that we never even heard of - until today.

Two of our Verizon insiders tipped us, indicating that the HTC Rhyme is in fact the ADR 6330VW and is now listed in the company's internal system. Even though there are no specs or pictures (yet), it is showing an anticipated release date of September 29 and a price of $199.99 with contract. As of now, very little is know about the HTC Rhyme, but it has shown up on the Bluetooth approval site supporting Bluetooth V3.0 and the US Trademark office.

We'll keep you posted when we learn more.

Thanks to our tipsters!

UPDATE: A noble anonymous tipster now shared the latest MAP sheet for Verizon with us, and as you can see, the HTC Rhyme has been added to the bottom of it, along with the said $199 price and September 29 release date. Additionally, we also notice the presence of the Motorola XOOM LTE, which we heard was added to the MAP sheet some time ago.

If you have some interesting info that you'd like to share with us, feel free to Tip Us!

He just posted a screen shot of MAP. Even the indirect reps have access to those. If you want to try and get your foot in the door, check out the job listings available.

Tips??? well it helps you leave close to a store or call center, gotta have a spotless background, gotta have a college degree, and just plain luck. Right now there seems to be thousands of applications whenever a new class is hired. The great thing is Verizonwireless IS hiring. No easy way in here though....gotta apply online. Dont apply if you worked for another cell company is the past since you are pretty much already "tainted". Then again Im just an unregistered dude......what do I know?

you don't need a college degree and you could have worked for a competitor, i know first hand about both of those

VZW corp stores require a college degree. Indirects don't. That's what I've learned from my experience anyway. The Full on Corp. Stores usually require a bachelor's degree of some kind.

it launched at $250 and it's an LG. i promise you HTC will charge higher than $200 for a new 4G LTE phone.

The Thunderbolt is $250, HTC will not offer something newer than this for $200. Just common sense

if the name is any indication it may be a mid-range Beats by Dre phone.

I would love if it is a Wp7 phone. Verizon seriously needs more. But it'll probably be just another good-but-not-good-enough android phone like most of them on Verizon unfortunately.

ADR means its android.

I am guessing, Its a 3'8 inch HTC phone, with Beats audio, Android 2.34 1.2 ghz, dual core
