Stylish HTC Rhyme Is Priced Upscale

The Rhyme, HTC's newest Android Gingerbread phone, has color-coordinated accessories aimed at consumers. The phone is available on Verizon Wireless and has excellent battery life, but it's priced a little high for the features it offers.

The HTC Quick Launch interface makes for a lighter, faster-functioning device. Its pop-out trays make it a cool alternative to working with other widgets. The Rhyme's corporate focus, with Exchange-based email and calendar shortcuts, help make this a strong messaging device for busy female executives or support people.
