Handset maker HTC issued an intriguing invitation to its followers on Facebook, inviting them to attend a public event due September 1 in London, just in time for the IFA trade show where giants like Samsung are expected to make major product announcements. The invite simply reads, “Join us to see what’s next” and promises “a few phone treats for you to enjoy”.

HTC will almost certainly pull a series of product updates and announcements at the public event and we expect some new phones to be revealed. First and foremost, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for more information about the Ruby, which is rumored to sport impressive specs and hopefully run Ice Cream Sandwich. The company may also play the safe card with new Windows Phone ‘Mango’ phones, like Samsung, and we’re certainly looking to put our hands on the forthcoming Puccini tablet, which is apparently scheduled to hit the market later that month. Full text of the invitation below the fold.

It’s been a while since we last met, so we thought that we’d invite you to come party – and most importantly see what’s next.
There will be the usual food, drinks, music and a few phone treats for you to enjoy.
It would be great to see you. If you’re planning on attending, please RSVP to let us know. Just remember that it’s an event for people over 18 and it’s on a first come, first served basis.
As ever you can always follow the conversation via our Twitter Tag: #HTCQB
Look forward to seeing you there!
HTC Team
P.S. For those who are a little camera shy, please read the terms and conditions (http://goo.gl/ZBdaX) as we will have the photographers at the event.
