The news was said to first appear with tmonews. Since the announcement a few days back, the particular post has been filled with almost 200 comments indicating the Sidekick line would be warmly welcomed back if reports were true.
So far, the only established piece of information is that HTC will be manufacturing the next smartphone under the Sidekick line, which eliminated the Samsung Galaxy S. According to the report, it is likely to be called as the Sidekick Twist although that may still be changed over time. The device may sport a 1 Ghz processor, although only time will tell if HTC and T-Mobile will be using a Snapdragon processor or another type. Other possible features on this upcoming device include a Super AMOLED screen display measuring 4.3 inches, a front facing camera and 16 GB of onboard storage.
