HTC Rhyme launches in the Philippines (Php25,000)

Much awaited HTC Rhyme now in the Philippines!

HTC Rhyme now in the PH for Php25,000

The HTC Rhyme strays from the usual smartphone spec horserace. Instead of hyping up what’s inside the phone, HTC is focusing on the peripherals, design, and complimentary accessories. This is definitely refreshing and it gives the company more leeway for marketing, branding, and positioning.


Before we go to the accessories let’s just quickly go over the specs. The HTC Rhyme has a 3.7″ capacitive touchscreen (480×800). It has generous servings of RAM at 768MB and it packs a 1GHz Scorpion processor. You also get a 5MP camera that has auto-focus and LED flash. It has decent specs but definitely not top-of-the-line.

The HTC Rhyme!


Like what we said above the highlight of the HTC Rhyme is actually the accessories that you can get for the phone. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • HTC Rhyme Docking Station – The Docking Station simultaneously recharges the phone while turning the phone into an alarm clock and music center so you can wake to your favorite songs played directly from the built-in Bluetooth capable speakers.
  • HTC Rhyme Charm – The Charm is an innovative approach for discretely alerting you to incoming calls or messages while the HTC Rhyme is deep in your bag. The Charm is a small light-emitting cube that attaches to the phone by a cord that can dangle from your bag and also be used to quickly pull the phone out of your bag. It also makes it easy to find your phone buried in your cluttered purse or backpack.
  • HTC Rhyme Sports Armband – The Sports Armband allows you to work out in style while keeping your apps and music close to you.
  • HTC Rhyme Tangle Free Headphones – The Tangle Free Headphones take the hassle out of listening to your favorite music.
  • HTC Rhyme Bluetooth® Headset – The wireless headset follows the same design cues as the phone itself and enables for easy hands free use.
  • HTC Rhyme Bluetooth® Car Speaker – The wireless speaker clips onto the sun visor in your car for easy and safe driving.

The following accessories come complimentary with the HTC Rhyme here in the Philippines: HTC Rhyme Docking Station, HTC Rhyme Tangle Free Headphones and HTC Rhyme Charm.
