We’ve already discovered the HTC Ruby in the wild a few times so the first press shot uncovered by the folks at PocketNow won’t provide any new information. Still, it’s the first press image although without T-Mobile branding we’re still inclined to think the T-Mobile will arrive with the white shell.
The Ruby and it’s 4.3″ qHD display, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel with dedicated camera and video record buttons are likely to put this phone in neck and neck competition for your dollars against the Samsung Galaxy S II. We’re still shooting for an October 19th or October 26th launch with the latest evidence pointing toward the 26th. We’ve have heard the possibility that date has been moved up a week but with nothing concrete we’re just saying circling both weeks on our calendars.
