A new Minimum Advertised Price list for Verizon devices has leaked out, and while a lot of it is old news, the list tips us off to the existence of a device referred to as the HTC Rhyme. Now we’re just left to wonder: what is it?
The leak has the Rhyme coming out around the end of September, going for about $200. Based on the model number, it looks like we’re dealing with an Android here.
We first saw this model number ADR6330VW pop up in a pre-MAP leak that came out this time last month. At the time, we were left scratching our heads as to what the device would be. This time, there aren’t many more conclusions we can come to, but at least we have a name for the handset.
If we want to make associations based on the model number’s proximity to other HTC Androids on Verizon, it’s not too off from the Droid Incredible 2. Just how much in common it might share with that smartphone, though, is a tough call.
Considering the phone’s name, it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the Rhyme released as part of HTC’s Beats partnership, maybe coming packaged with a pair of the company’s earbuds. Ultimately, we’re just going to have to wait for more information to come out before we can pin-down the nature of the HTC Rhyme.
