Aimed at the ladeez, HTC Bliss to land at Verizon

HTC Bliss, found by This is my next in May.

Rumors of the HTC Bliss have been floating around since May, but new details have emerged regarding the phone aimed at girls. The device is no powerhouse, reports HTC Inside. On the software side the device will feature Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) with a HTC Sense 3.5 as an overlay..bleh. On the hardware side the device will reportedly ship with a Qualcomm MSM7x30 processor running at 800 Mhz. This device will likely be a mid-range phone, like the Desire Z, and will most likely land at Verizon next month. Now for the girls part…

The device will come preloaded with apps aimed at women — like a calorie counter and a shopping app. More interestingly, as an accessory  there will be a charm that will hang off the phone and lights up when you have a notification (seen after the break).

Does the world really need a phone aimed at girls? TechCrunch’s Sarah Perez weighs in..

Why does Android have to be pitched differently to men and women? Last time I checked, women want the same things men do in their devices: power, performance, great hardware, great software, plus lots and lots of apps.

And not just the dieting ones.
