Rumor: T-Mobile ‘Project Emerald’ is Sidekick-Branded Android Product
We reported earlier this week what we believed to be details about T-Mobile’s ultra-secretive Project Emerald. At the time, we suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S was the handset behind the project and it would be coming early July. We still feel very strongly about the actual phone intel, but as for it lining up with the ‘project’, well maybe not so much.
TmoNews and DroidDog are reporting that the phone that’s going to be part of T-Mobile’s latest initiative will actually be a Sidekick. This time around, HTC will be manufacturing the device as opposed to Sharp or Motorola. Rumored specs peg the phone with Android 2.1, a 1 GHz processor (assumed to be Snapdragon), a front-facing camera, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display, and 16 GB of internal storage. Sounds like a pretty grown up Sidekick to us! No firm dates yet, but we’ve learned it should be ‘summer’.
