It was just a couple of weeks ago when the women-focused HTC Rhyme was officially unveiled on its way to Verizon. The smartphone arrived in stores late last month, and has been selling for $199.99 with a new two-year contract ever since.
If you thought (like we did) that $199.99 was a bit too much for what’s basically a midrange Android-powered smartphone underneath all that female-focused glitter, then here’s some good news. If you wanted to get yourself a Rhyme but were holding back because of the price, there’s no need to do that anymore.
The HTC Rhyme can now be yours for just $79.99, courtesy of Amazon. You’ll still need to sign a new two-year service agreement, yes, but let’s not pretend we can ignore a $120 discount which comes so soon after the phone’s release.
In case you forgot, here’s a quick refresher of the HTC Rhyme’s specs. It has a 1 GHz single-core processor, a 3.7-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, 768 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,600 mAh battery.
