HTC has officially released Rhyme in the Indian market today. Priced at INR 27,499 (MRP – 29,990), it has been available for a much lower price of INR 24,800 for quite some time. But, we believe that it going to change soon. All the major cellphone manufacturers are correcting their pricing to take the increasing load of poor rupee value and it has impacted the pricing pattern deeply.
Results are clearly before us, a single core Gingerbread smartphone with 3.7 inch display has been priced in the range of some time old Samsung Galaxy S II, which features a dual core processor and 4.27 inch Super AMOLED Plus display along with several other great features.
To refresh your memory, HTC Rhyme features a 5MP rear camera, 0.3MP front shooter, 768MB RAM and 1GB internal memory with 1600 mAh battery. Rhyme package in India comes with Charm indicator, and tangle free headset in the box.
“HTC Rhyme represents an entirely new approach, based on recognition that there is a substantial group of consumers who want their phones to be more personal and complimentary to every moment of their day. HTC Rhyme is focused on delivering this through a fresh new style and experience that includes a family of innovative accessories like the HTC Rhyme Charm and Docking Station that are meant to naturally integrate into people’s lives,” said Faisal Siddiqui, Country Manager, HTC India, in a statement.
