HTC Rhyme with Android Gingerbread announced for Verizon

Initially known as HTC Bliss, the HTC Rhyme has been finally announced by the Taiwanese company, which unveiled that the smartphone would be first released by Verizon Wireless in the US.

Verizon will offer the Rhyme starting September 29 (for an unknown price), while other markets – including Europe and Asia – are expected to get it in October.

As previously reported, the HTC Rhyme comes with Sense UI 3.5, and runs Android Gingerbread. Its other features include: a 3.7 inch WVGA display, HTC Watch, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, and a 1GHz processor (single core).

As you can see in the photo above, there will be lots of exclusive accessories for the HTC Rhyme, including a docking station, a “Charm cable” (which is “connected to the phone and has a protruding small cube that glows” to warn users about incoming calls or messages), a “sports armband”, and a  Bluetooth headset – most of them dressed in the same color as the handset (lavender in Verizon’s case, although we’ve seen a sliver version of the Rhyme, too).

Update: Verizon will sell the HTC Rhyme for $199 on contract.
