T-Mobile Planning Big October-November: Android, WP7, BlackBerry
Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices are all in for T-Mobile as the carrier prepares its October-November period of releasing smartphones. November 2 seems to be the big day but there will be phones both prior and after this date, according to a leaked screenshot of the carrier’s roadmap.
The October 19 date, on which we’ll meet the HTC Ruby and the Samsung Hercules, seems to be a bit off as the phones will be reportedly available for preorder on October 10, in store on October 12. You’ll probably know the Ruby as the T-Mobile Amaze 4G; it packs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch qHD screen and 1GB of RAM, plus NFC. The Samsung Hercules is none other than the T-Mobile Galaxy S II.
November 2 is the day on which we’ll see the LG Maxx, LG Maxx QWERTY, HTC Omega, LG Flip II, and Samsung Ancora reportedly join the line-up. The LG Maxx (and its QWERTY-enabled cousin, the Maxx Q) will probably be the new myTouch, this time made by the Korean manufacturer. While still at LG, there will also be the Flip II model, the one with the secondary display.
There’s no doubt about the HTC Omega, better known as the T-Mobile Radar 4G, which has already been announced as the carrier’s Windows Phone Mango device. The Samsung Ancora seems to be nothing else than the Galaxy W, joining the carrier as the T679.
Fast forward to November 9 and we’ll allegedly meet the BlackBerry Dumoine, most probably the BlackBerry Torch with its 1.2GHz processor, 8 GB onboard memory, 768 MB of RAM, and 3.2-inch VGA screen.
