It’s been an odd journey for the HTC Ruby. It was originally dismissed as a codename for the HTC Arrive, essentially the US version of our QWERTY-rocking HTC 7 Pro.
But it seems that the HTC Ruby is, in fact, very much its own beast, boasting a spec sheet that threatens to punch most other smartphones in the gob, with a kick to the groin thrown in for good measure.
A previous leak showed the HTC Ruby in white, but it appears to have done a reverse Michael Jackson. Fortunately for the HTC Ruby, if you wanna be my smartphone it don’t matter if you’re black or white.
And what of these specs? How does a 4.3in 960 x 540 qHD display with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor sound? Throw in an 8MP camera, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage and Android 2.3 with Sense 3.5, and we’re sold.
