For all the ladies out there who've been eagerly awaiting the HTC Bliss - looks like it's not going to be coming after all. That's because it's now been renamed the HTC Rhyme instead.
German site HTC Inside has leaked a photo of the newly renamed handset not only boasting a less obviously feminine name, but also a surprisingly neutral silver colouring too. Seems HTC has figured girls are capable of wanting normal gadgets like everyone else too.
We'd originally been expecting the Bliss to arrive in a sea green hue, or at least had been told to expect as much anyway, so seeing the colour change is a surprise, especially since it isn't in the direction of bright pink, which would be our first guess from a device named Bliss, anyway.
That said, we're still led to believe the Rhyme, if that's to be its final name, will arrive with a patronisingly named "charm indicator" you can put on a keyring or the outside of a handbag, say, which will glow when texts, calls and emails come in.
For the rest, the handset is expected to feature a 3.7-inch screen, along with a 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording. And of course Android Gingerbread.
Whatever it ends up being called, we're expecting this feminine-focused phone to go on sale along with the scarily big-screened HTC Runnymede between now and the end of the year.
