Mobile City Online Posts Samsung Hercules For Preorder With Great Photoshop Job

When this came across into my inbox just now I almost fell out of my chair laughing at the Photoshop job because it’s both awesome and ridiculous at the same time. What is clearly an Infuse 4G shopped with a T-Mobile logo is now available for pre-order as  the Samsung Hercules at MobileCityOnline.com. Am I the only one who feels it’s a little premature to have this posted for preorder with such a steep price when the existence of the phone has yet to be confirmed?

While I trust MobileCityOnline as a place to order unlocked equipment I can’t recommend providing any sort of funds for a preorder on this device until we can nail down some concrete information. Hey, the photoshopped picture is still fun though.

Thanks Marcus!

In case anyone wants to check it out, here’s the original picture!

    I can’t wait till next week’s Samsung event and I really hope there’s a T-Mobile phone announcement.

    Are they going to release SGS2 for a T-Mobile? Sorry if someone answered this question. I am new and looking for phone like SGS2 or similar but I am really like one above :)))

      No one knows yet unfortunately. It is assumed that this bigger “SGS2″ will be our SGS2

        For some reason I don’t like this phone,

    On that website it says, “Technology:
    4G US T-Mobile Standard , Quad Band 850/900/1800/1900″.  Clearly they don’t know what they are talking about.  Those are the 2G bands, not 3G/4G.

    Hope this is not coming until christmas time. My SGS2 that I will be using on my tmo account is arriving Tomorrow.

      Did you get that unlocked then? I’m waiting for the Hercules because the Sensation was a total let down in my opinion.

    Ugly!

    Although i does have a lot of problems it still is a flagship device, thus pulling it off the shelves would be a suicide for the company! They’ve created a help page in the old Streamline (new “Community”) to help people deal with G2x’s shortcomings. 
    Also, did you know that they’ve named it “G2X” so customers would associate it with the T-mobile G2 by which increasing sales cause “LG”, in many cases, is associated with something unreliable, cheap, etc. I remember when I used to work for one of the authorized T-mobile dealers (even ATT, heh) we’d always refer to “LG” as “NG”, which stands for something broken, abbreviated from “no Good”. I knew that G2x would be a fail, as a matter of fact I’m a bit impressed! The original Optimus T had very little to offer,  except for the 1500MaH battery and a very, very low price. Otherwise not very flashy and the colors are really friggin ugly.

    I checked out the infuse 4g yesterday… it’s big! Vibrant size is just perfect, infuse size is bigger, Hercules i can only imagine is gonna be bigger. I don’t think I can put it in my pocket… if this one turns out to be too big for my taste then I may hold off and just wait for something else, besides my contract won’t be up until next year..

    I’ll see..

    does anyone know how much this phone will be? we were going to switch from Verizon to tmobile because tmobile is a little cheaper family share wise and we’re going to sign a 2 year contract. any idea on the 2 year price?
