T-Mobile USA CEO Confirms Android-Based Sidekick 4G, Galaxy S 4G

T-Mobile USA CEO Philipp Humm spilled some official beans all over a few recent rumors.  It appears that not only is the Vibrant getting its 4G successor, but the carrier is ready to refresh their Sidekick brand.  Although specifics were not disclosed, Humm did say that the Sidekick would in fact be powered by Android, something rumored for many months.  According to PC Magazine, these two will arrive in the first half of the year, alongside the Dell Streak 7 and LG G-Slate.

“We will launch as new the Samsung Galaxy S 4G … and coming soon, will also be a Sidekick 4G. Everybody knows the Sidekick, and we’re going to relaunch the Sidekick and bring it as a 4G device, Android based, into the market,” Humm said.

Anyone ready to go back to a Sidekick?

    Can’t wait to see what the Sidekick is gonna look like, I hope it’s a high end device though. I had the Sidekick2 and I love that thing. I can only imagine how much more awesome it will be with Android on it.
