Speaking at an event, T-Mobile USA's new CEO, Philipp Humm, confirmed that the company plans to launch a 4G version of its Sidekick messenger phones and a 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy S. Humm said, "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 didn't provide specific details about the devices, nor did he say what speeds the new devices would actually provide. Samsung has already hinted that it plans major announcements for next month's Mobile World Congress event, and has a press conference scheduled for February 13.

No surprise here. We all suspected that a phone would be coming back under the Sidekick name, as Tmo owns the copyright, and it confirms my suspicions that it would be Android based. The only remaining question is the form factor... will it retain the classic Sidekick flip, or slide like a CLIQ?
