If you needed further reason to plunk down cash on phones like HTC's recently-announced Rhyme, HTC and Dropbox want to give it to you. The two companies are teaming up to give owners of HTC's Android phones a free 3GB of storage. Coupled with the 2GB that Dropbox already gifts its new users, and you have a solid 5GB to play with.

The only catch is that the deal only affects phones running Sense 3.5, which are so far limited to HTC's purple and female-focused Rhyme. Of course, that limitation is certain to abate a bit as HTC announces more and more new Sense 3.5-equipped phones. It's also possible that HTC will give owners of its older phones the bump to both Sense 3.5 and the DropBox deal, but the company hasn't confirmed anything quite yet.

    What makes the Rhyme female focused other than being purple (which is an awesome color, btw). Not being inflammatory, it's just the first I've heard of it.

      They made it a bit smaller for the female customers hand. They Aaded some more colors to the body instead lof the more masculine black or grey. They gave it color cordinated bluetooth accessories for car use and overall a more feminine feel to th its look.

    Please give me a phone with working radio code so my phone doesn't crash all the time. Google can't fix it since HTC licenses the code from Qualcomm.

    HTC customer support can't or won't fix the problem.

    Nevermind, I'll just wait for the next generation Motorola or iPhone5.

      Why don't you just get a Blackberry and be done with it if you want a reliable, productive device.

      Plum will go over well with the ladies buying them.

  • Only if HTC has fixed storage location

    I have an HTC Droid Eris (worst phone in the history of mankind) and was using Dropbox a few months ago. The problem was, HTC wanted to load the Dropbox files on the resident memory and wouldn't let me save out to my memory card. Consequently, my phone was always out of memory and I had to delete almost all of my apps to accomodate Dropbox, until I had enough and deleted Dropbox off my phone.

    Is this really that big a deal? You get (as mentioned) 2GB free but you can also refer other people and you get something like a 500 MB or more bump whenever they sign up for Dropbox.
