According to the image above, Target Mobile (Radio Shack) is going to have the HTC Rhyme/Bliss ready for a September 21 pre-sale, followed by a September 22 release. Apparently, the version offered will have a plum shade, pretty much like the initial renders we’ve already seen.
There’s more to the Rhyme than the phone; apparently it will come with a “charm” which will glow whenever you need to be notified of incoming, missed calls, or text messages. It plugs in the 3.5mm headphone jack but there might be some other surprises in the box too (maybe a dock or a Beats by Dr. Dre pair of headphones?).
Spec-wise, the HTC Rhyme will pack a 3.7-inch WVGA screen, a single-core 1GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, five-megapixel camera with 720p video recording capability, VGA front-facer, and will be powered by a 1,600mAh battery. The platform is Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC’s own Sense 3.5 on top of it.
On the official Verizon channel, the sign-up page for the phone is live over at the carrier. If you want to be notified of new about the device (such as launch, release, availability, etc,), head over to the source link and sign up.
