HTC Rhyme goes official: landing on Verizon Sept 29th, to woo ladies with a Charm indicator and plum colors
After a couple of leaks here and there, the HTC Rhyme, formerly referred to as the HTC Bliss, has finally been officially confirmed and it’s coming on Verizon on September 29th. Other markets among which Europe and Asia are to get the Rhyme in October.

Initially, the HTC Rhyme was thought to target mostly the female audience with its plum-colored body and a Charm indicator which would blink whenever the phone needs your attention. You just have to plug it in the 3.5mm headset jack and it goes active. The whole idea is to have it clipped on your bag, ladies (or maybe men too), so you don't have to go exploring the contents of that new huge bag full of who-knows-what.

In addition, the handset will come with a handful of accessories including a docking station, tangle-free headphones (not Beats Audio, sadly), a sports armband and a Bluetooth headset matching the plum phone in color.

Specwise, the HTC Rhyme is not breaking new ground, but has some pretty decent hardware inclunding: 
- 3.7 inch WVGA display,
- Single-core 1GHz Qualcomm S2 MSM8655 processor, 768MB of RAM,
- 5MP rear autofocus camera with LED flash, front-facing camera,
- Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread skinned with Sense UI 3.5,
- 3G HSDPA EV-DO, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack,
- 1600mAh battery,
- HTC Watch.

We don’t know the exact price just yet, but rumors point at $50 with a 2-year agreement on Big Red. Does this sound reasonable and are you getting the HTC Rhyme?
