HTC Rhyme gets a software update

Ladies and yes, some gentlemen, who own an HTC Rhyme will be happy to know that there’s a software update. Unfortunately it’s not Ice Cream Sandwich, and I doubt the Rhyme will ever see ICS, but nevertheless, who’s going to turn down some extra enhancements?

Hit the break for the full change log:

Device Features

  • “Ringtones” has been replaced with “Edit Home” when the Menu key is pressed on the home screen.
  • Updated signal strength meter to 5 bar Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).
  • Mobile networks no longer disabled when using Power Saver.
  • Device is enabled with the Wireless Alerting System.

Device Dock Features

  • Default applications in Dock Mode have been changed to “Phone” and “Calendar”.
  • In-call volume control has been added to Dock Mode.
  • “All Apps” option has been added to Dock Mode.
  • Resolved issue of dock volume changing to 20%.

Applications & Widgets

  • Device displays available music on the device and provides an option to purchase ringtones from the MOD application when a user is attempting to set a new ringtone through a prepopulated list.
  • Mail shortcut now shows unread mail count.

His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
