The HTC Rhyme is a new device, designed for the more stylish and fashionable Android user. This device packs a sleek punch with a nice purple detailed casing and strong durability.

Just two weeks after Apple released iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S, Google and Samsung took center stage with their Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Galaxy Nexus–both of which can potentially make Apple’s goods turn Android-green with envy.
