Been a long time since we heard this one. Since T-Mobile killed off the SideKick brand, we’ve heard rumors of T-Mobile wanting to reignite it with Android and a new hardware manufacturer. Those rumors started as early as the beginning of Summer: remember “Project Emerald“? Yea, we haven’t talked about it for months as time has come and passed without a peep regarding a new SideKick.

But according to reports received by TmoNews – from a bunch of people who attended a town hall meeting – there is a SideKick 4G. It’ll don Android 2.3 and HSPA+ radios, reportedly. And in true SideKick fashion, it’ll have a swivel-out QWERTY keyboard. The real story is that all of this was supposedly revealed at some town hall meeting – really? Of all places, a town hall meeting? Whatever. There’s the rumor. We’ll be digging for more soon enough.
