HTC Rhyme lands in the UK via O2, free from £24 per month
The HTC Rhyme, the company’s first device aimed primarily at women, was announced last month for Verizon in the US, however we quickly heard that it would be making its way to the UK too. Over there, O2 was supposed to start selling the Rhyme on October 17 (so ten days ago), but when that didn’t happen, we got to thinking that the Rhyme was delayed in the UK.
We’re happy to report that there was in fact a delay, but a rather short one, for the Rhyme is now safely in stock at O2. The ‘plum’ color will be exclusive to O2 in the UK, and, as usual, the phone is being offered with a myriad of different contracts.
The cheapest monthly contract is £13.50 and nets you 50 minutes, 250 texts, and 100 MB of data, but you’ll have to shell out £104.99 for the phone upfront. The cheapest plan that allows you to get the Rhyme for free costs £24 per month and comes with 300 minutes, unlimited texts, and 100 MB of data. That said, there are other options, so make sure you check them all out before hitting that all-important Add to basket button.
The HTC Rhyme has a 3.7-inch 800×480 touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing camera for video calls, 4 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, 768 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, HSPA, and a 1,600 mAh battery.
