All the hubbub about T-Mobile’s so-called “Project Emerald” was leaning towards the code name having something to do with the Samsung Galaxy S, but new reports over at TmoNews are suggesting that the phone in question would actually be HTC-made. In fact, the phone in question would be dubbed the “Sidekick Twist.” The new Sidekick would be an Android 2.1 device with a 1GHz processor, front-facing camera, and 4.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen. You’d also get 16GB of built-in storage.

Those are some pretty impressive specs for a Sidekick, if you ask me. Is TMo looking to get that brand prominently back out in its line? For the longest time it seemed anyone I knew who was on T-Mobile was exclusively because of the Sidekick, which was the relatively short-lived precursor to the social-networking smartphone heavies we see today. Definitely a big brand for the carrier, and one that could see some real life with Android.
