Full HTC Bliss Specs Revealed, Charm Indicator For the Girls in the Building

The HTC Bliss has been featured in the rumor mill for months now as one of the first Android devices developed specifically for the female crowd.  With its odd green exterior and the possibility of a female-friendly set of apps pre-loaded, it’s an interesting idea, but one that just turned whacky thanks to a look at its accessory list.  Anyone interested in a “charm indicator”?  According to the This is my next crew, this charm indicator will act as an attachment to the phone that can light up during incoming calls or texts.  The point being, that if the device is in a purse, murse or other bag, this charm indicator could hang outside to let you know when your phone is receiving some action.  Kind of a cool idea…time or bust out a fanny pack.  

Other than the fancy charm indicator, we also get a look at the internal specs which included a single-core 1GHz processor, dual cameras, and 768MB of RAM.  It’s a next-gen phone, but it’s also up there with the Thunderbolts of the world.

We are also pretty positive that this device will become the HTC Rhyme on Verizon here in the states.  The Bliss, as listed above, is headed to Europe with HSPA radios, but we have this mid-range ADR6330 (Rhyme) smartphone that has for the most part eluded us.  Here’s to hoping they ditch the moldy wheatgrass color scheme when it makes its way over.

HTC Runnymede specs were also revealed – we will have them at Android Life shortly.

  • I must say I really  like it. Your imformation is usefull. Thanks for share.

  • that HTC was conducting focus groups with women in their 20s and 30s.
    The manufacturer was gauging interest in a device that would potentially
    feature preinstalled apps for calorie-counting and shopping.

  • This is another hit-in-the-making for HTC. I’m just curious how this charm indicator would work. There should be like a toughness indicator for boys, too. Hehehe. =)

  • the Bliss will inevitably become the Rhyme once it hits stores — which plays right intoHTC infatuation with beats, though the tech probably won’t be incorporated here.

  • is a pocket PC from HTC that offer a comprehensive office solution for
    people on the move. Efficient document management and 3G capabilities
    make it an ideal choice for the travelling folks.

  • interesting. I love the charm indicator feature. I hope it will be accurate

    I also find it funny that manufacturers just assume women don’t care at all if their phones are old technology. That indicator charm is the shit though, marketing wise, if I know anything about asian women they will go crazy over that.

  • wait how can this phone be coming to verizon with Hspa and GSM tech in it, i see no CDMA radio listed so this has to be going elsewhere

    I am bracing myself something fierce for the day where I go in to check out the Prime and someone tries to sell me a Bliss.

    And by “bracing myself,” I mean preparing to ask for a supervisor if they don’t respect what I’m shopping for. Bad enough how sexist the enthusiast community is. I shouldn’t have to deal with it from my vendor, too.

    I hear the Vibrate feature on this phone has been optimized for her pleasure!

  • Will it have an app to make her stop complaining?

    Considering my best friend (female) went and got the PoS that is the HTC Status because of facebook and buttons on a phone, I really wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of clueless teenage girls pick this up just because of the charm indicator.

    • lmao who bought that crap? (besides your fried of course)

  • Kierra

    For serious? As a proud vagina carrier I’m offended…

      3.7 inches? Get out

    The male version of this are those watches that connect to your phone via bluetooth. I don’t see the complete usefulness for these, since I’m constantly using my phone anyways.

    We’ll see if this marketing scheme works. Do they think that females are dumb enough to buy a low end specs phone, when they could very well customize and download apps of their own liking on a much higher ends specs phone?

      “Do they think that females are dumb enough to buy a low end specs phone”

      Yes.. it’s pretty 

  • Dshudson

    Does it come with something to make her leave the house once and a while, especially on Sunday?

    HTC My Boudin 😛

  • The name of the phone is the Bliss. You can figure out what part of the market the phone is aimed at by the name alone. Same as you can figure that the Thunderbolt and Bionic probably aren’t aimed at the grown up My Little Pony crowd. Given that, the charm thing is probably a good idea.

    • Mimeo Ink

      Is this the part where a bunch of 18-21 year old bronies stampede in to inform everyone that the new MLP series is just as much for them as the Thunderbolt?

      (For serious. The target market for high-end Android devices sure overlaps the adult MLP:FiM fandom lately.)

    Does the HTC Bliss come with the Dildroid app?

    I just got a $ 830 iPad2 for only $ 105.39 and my mom got a $ 1500 HD TV for only $ 253.94, they are both coming with FedEx tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 39″ HD TV to my boss for $ 600 that I only paid $ 80.23 for. I use http://alturl.com/zdw4k

      “I would be an idiot…” That ship has already sailed.

    Slap a blue skin on it and give it a TARDIS “charm”.

    I want a charm in the shape of a skull… that’s cool.
