Just when you thought there couldn’t be anything new in the already very busy, competitive and crowded smartphone marketplace, word is out that Samsung will be building the latest Sidekick 4G. Alas, the Sidekick will no longer be a Sharp product – that is, a product manufactured by Sharp Electronics. As far as I’m concerned, this can only be good for the Sidekick line. Having recently personally experienced the wonder of the Samsung Fascinate Galaxy S, I have no doubt that Samsung will infuse their innovative magic and quality into the Sidekick brand.
Introducing The Sidekick Slide
ZDNet recently leaked this as well as the fact that T-Mobile will be bringing several new 4G smartphones to the market. Besides the Sidekick 4G, we can also expect to see the Samsung Vibrant 4G. While the Sidekick seems to be very popular with the younger crowd, the Vibrant is more my cup of tea. The Sidekick will be executed using the slide up instead of the flip paradigm. But wait… there’s more! Powering these babies will be the ever popular and ubiquitous Android OS.
Off To The Show
Hungry for more? As always, the team at MRT is just as anxious as you and we’ll keep an ear to the ground for the latest news on this latest development. And don’t forget that our own Jonathan Long will be spending some quality time at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in mid February. At that time, Samsung is expected to announce the latest on their smartphone devices. Jonathan is committed to feed us the latest news as he sees it and you can expect us to feature dynamic updates right here on MRT regarding Samsung and all the other vendors featuring their latest exciting announcements.
For now, we can say that it is safe to look for the newest Sidekick 4G incarnation as well as the Vibrant 4G to debut in the first half of 2011. I think it is safe to speculate that they will come with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on board. Fingers are crossed .
So how do you feel about the upcoming Sidekick and Vibrant 4G? You know that we always love to hear from you. And don’t forget, we will be announcing details on CES giveaways very soon.
