That didn’t take long. Just earlier, we were hearing about a SideKick 4G that was announced at a town hall meeting. Turns out the meeting was a quiet press briefing at a town hall that featured Deutsche Telekom’s CEO Rene Obermann and T-Mobile USA’s CEO Phillip Humm – a meeting we heard would take place earlier in the week.  Humm confirmed that a SideKick 4G is indeed coming. Refer to the little bit we know about it from the leak earlier: Android 2.3, HSPA+, and a swivel-out QWERTY with a touchscreen, obviously. But that’s all we know for now.

Another tidbit he threw out was that the Samsung Galaxy S 4G – the Vibrant 4G – will be coming soon, as well. We expect that to be one of Samsung’s big showings at their event the night before Mobile World Congress kicks off. We want even more details! We’ll be trying to find them. In the meantime, here’s the report from PCMag.

Update: Now with a pic! Feast your eyes on the two side-by-side below. Grainy, not official-looking, but it’s something. [via PCMag]
