HTC Ruby appears in reflection of HTC Flyer
A new HTC handset, purported to be the HTC Ruby, has been photographed and appears in the reflection of an HTC Flyer tablet in a Flickr photo stream. The poster, Raymi0402, has somewhat oddly, taken the photo in a reflection off the screen of what appears to be an HTC Flyer tablet. All that can be identified from the photo is the top half of the rear of the device, which does in the end reveal quite a decent portion of the device and gives people a sense of what it looks like.
Previously, the Ruby name had been seemingly applied as a codename for what became the HTC Arrive. However, once that phone was released, the Ruby name disappeared off the radar until now.
The HTC Arrive is a Windows Phone 7 handset, and while this new phone could be a replacement model, it does not bear any obvious resemblance to that device. Until more details emerge, it could be either a new Windows Phone 7 or Android handset. [via Pocket Now]
