HTC trademarks HTC Enamor and HTC Rhyme

Is a HTC Surround successor on the way?

We are expecting a few new HTC Windows Phone 7 handsets this autumn, so the two new HTC device names just trademarked may be relevant to our interests.

HTC has asked for protection for two new devices, which may be smartphones or tablets.

One is the HTC Enamor (presumably a device aimed at women?) and the other the HTC Rhyme, clearly a music focussed handset, possibly like the HTC Surround. HTC’s merger with Beats Audio of course makes another music-focussed handset much more likely.

We should see the first new HTC Windows Phone 7.5 handsets within the next 6 –10 weeks, so all mysteries will be revealed soon.
