HTC Ruby, Samsung Hercules Tipped for October 26 Launch

A leaked internal T-Mobile presentation slide has provided what looks to be solid evidence of release date for two of the carrier’s next big Android releases.  According to the back-to-school screenshot you see above, the HTC Ruby and Samsung Hercules are expected to arrive on October 26th.  Both are high-end 4G handsets and offer cutting-edge technology, something T-Mobile is beginning to get pretty adept at releasing.

Hit the break to take a quick look at the rumored specifications for each handset.  The two match up quite nicely with each other, making for an unenviable decision come Halloween.
