HTC Rhyme and HTC Radar
Roaring in the Lion City
HardwareZone Philippines recently flew to Singapore this week to cover HTC’s regional launch that was held in the luxurious Marina Bay Sands. A gathering of different media organizations from the ASEAN, HTC proudly introduced four new smartphones that are slated to take the region by storm this final quarter of 2011 – the Rhyme, Radar, Explorer, and the Sensation XE.
The HTC Rhyme comes bundled with a dedicated dock that instantly switches the smartphone to alarm clock mode. Apart from time, the Rhyme can tell you the weather in your home country as well as in other parts of the world.
A handy imaging device, the HTC Rhyme’s camera features an easy-to-use panorama mode and super-fast bust mode. The panorama mode is apt when shooting landscapes, whereas the bust mode, with the capability to capture five consecutive images with just a click, is ideal when taking photos of sports activities and other fast-moving subjects. The Rhyme’s camera is also great in shooting portrait or group shots, thanks to its face detection feature.
Aside from the dock, HTC also bundles the Rhyme with a headset and a portable speaker, both of which can be wirelessly connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth.
Here is a hands-on demo of the Rhyme during the event:
Amid the Android smartphones that were showcased during the event, the HTC Radar stood out as it is the sole offering that runs on Windows Phone 7.5, more known as Mango. The Radar, like its Android-based contemporaries, espouses a unibody chassis. The smartphone comes with a 5-megapixel camera with F2.2 lens, LED flash, and back-illuminated sensor.
