HTC Rhyme/Bliss press shots leaked with Sense 3.5

German website HTCInside recently leaked press shots of the HTC Rhyme, currently codenamed HTC Bliss, which HTC is might unveil during a press event in New York City next week. Unfortunately, specs are still very slim at this point. The HTC Bliss was originally rumored to be a smartphone that would be specifically targeted at women, but HTCInside says that won’t be the case when it breaks cover as the Rhyme. The Rhyme runs Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) and may be equipped with a 3.7-inch display. It is possible the Rhyme will be offered in a variety of colors including blue, silver/white, yellow and pink, although that is still unconfirmed. We’ll be reporting live from HTC’s event on September 20th so stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, read on for two more images of the Rhyme. More →

Verizon roadmap shows Galaxy S II, 4G Curve, HTC Vigor, new 4G Galaxy Tab, more

Verizon Wireless has a blockbuster smartphone and tablet lineup planned ahead of the holiday shopping season this year according to a purported leaked roadmap. Published on Wednesday by IGN, the roadmap reveals numerous previously unheard of devices. While details are scarce for the time being, several highly anticipated phones are mentioned on the document as well, alongside launch dates. The following are highlights from the document along with launch dates and some available details:

  • September 8th: Samsung Stratosphere (presumably Verizon’s Galaxy S II) — 4G LTE, Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • September 8th: Motorola DROID BIONIC
  • September 8th: BlackBerry Curve 9370 — 4G LTE
  • September 8th: 4G Motorola XOOM
  • September 29th: Samsung Illusion — Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • September 29th: HTC Bliss — Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • October 5th: HTC Vigor — replaces the HTC Thunderbolt
  • October 20th: LG Revolution 2 — replaces the LG Revolution
  • November: Galaxy Tab P8 — 4G LTE

The document also mentions a Samsung Plato, though it says the device’s launch has been delayed until January, and it states that Verizon will launch RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook at a date to be determined. None of this is confirmed for the time being, though if accurate, Verizon Wireless subscribers can expect quite a lineup this fall straight through to the holidays. More →

LG Canada outs LGBliss and Keybo2

LG Canada outs LGBliss and Keybo2

Oops. While neither handset is due for launch until this Friday, apparently LG just couldn’t wait to take the wraps off either of these puppies. Both handsets are now fully detailed on LG’s Canadian site and, despite their humdrum specs, we just can’t resist it when a company leaks its own handsets. Beginning with the LGBliss, pictured above left, we’re looking at an August 7th launch from Bell with pricing coming in at $79.95 CAD on a 3-year contract. In terms of specs you’ve got a full 3-inch 240×400 pixel touchscreen, 2 megapixel camera, video capture capability, 4 1/2 hours of talk time and a UI that even looks terrible in the marketing renders. TELUS’ Keybo2 will also launch on August 7th and will be priced at $129.99 CAD on a 3-year contract. Here we’ve got a dual-keypad clamshell with a 2.6-inch 320×240 pixel internal display and a 1.56-inch 160×96 pixel external display. Other notable specs include a 3 megapixel camera with video capture, stereo Bluetooth support and up to 5 1/3 hours of talk time. There’s still no word on whether or not we can expect either handset to launch elsewhere in the near future, not that you care.
