HTC Rhyme old android market?

So I purchased an HTC Rhyme for my wife (she liked the charm it came with) and was going through it the other day and noticed it still uses the old android market, she is running the most up to date version of android available to her phone and I have tried going into the market and updating all applications and then going to the home screen in hopes the market would self update. All to no avail..

 

So is the Rhyme just supposed to use the old android market or has it just not been released for the Rhyme yet, or am I doing something incorrectly in the update process?

 

Thanks in advance!

It might not have updated either. Try opening the Market app and leave it open for a few minutes.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Just go to this link on your phone and download the new market.  Make sure you go to Menu>Settings>Applications and check Unknown Sources.  Then open the web browser on the phone and go to this link http://goo.gl/SdTKL and download then install the new market to your phone.  Hope this helps :smileyhappy:

I tried what was suggested & it did work, it installed an apk app which I didn't even think about when was previously trying to update Market. Thanks for the suggestion :smileyhappy:
