The HTC Rhyme is in line to receive a minor update that will bring its version number to 2.20.605.3. The 67.8MB update won’t bring any major changes but does tweak a few things here and there. Pressing the menu key while on the device’s homescreen will now provide users with an “Edit Home” option, dock behaviors have been modified, an unread mail counter has been added to the Mail shortcut. Users hoping for Ice Cream Sandwich will have to keep waiting. More details can be found at Verizon’s support site.
