The plum colored HTC Rhyme over on Big Red is set to receive an update soon according to the folks from Verizon. The documents have just been released detailing the upcoming update although it’s not actually available yet. While this isn’t Ice Cream Sandwich or anything major it does bring some improvements and new dock features.
Sadly this isn’t Ice Cream Sandwich like many other HTC devices have been receiving as of late, and it doesn’t really bring anything all that important either. Oddly the update is quite large though. This new version is build 2.20.605.3 and the update comes in around 67.8MB in size. For those that love using that Rhyme dock for playing music, or hands-free calling it does have some new features worth a quick mention.
All the details from the update can be found from the image in the gallery below. Things like changes to the signal bar indicator and strength, bug fixes, and battery improvements — but those are all minor things most updates contain. The big fixes and improvements come to those who use the included dock, and here are the changes:
– 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%.
It’s nice to see the dock wont be cranking volume down to 20% on its own anymore, making it hard to listen to music or hear people while on calls. For the rest of the changes see the Verizon update page linked at the top of the page. The update should start rolling out this week to users. Let us know when you get it, and how it works out.
