Samsung Galaxy S On T-Mobile Coming In July

Folks at Boy Genius Report have noted from sources that Samsung and T-Mobile are working something “major” for the month of July. What is it going to be? It’s anyone’s guess at the moment, but it could be the “Project Emerald” that we have been talking so much all along.

Earlier this month, we had speculated that the Project Emerald could actually be about bringing HTC Sidekick Twist to T-Mobile. Before that, it was speculated to be about a HTC Desire launch. But with Samsung and T-Mobile now noted to be working on something big, it can only be Samsung Galaxy S and this is probably the only other thing that deserves the status of being called “Project Emerald“. Don’t you think so?
