"Project Emerald" floating around T-Mobile's future?

This article contains unofficial information.
The shiny green luster of a an emerald jewel somehow has some kind of ties with T-Mobile's future. There are some grumblings floating around that hint to the notion that this so-called “Project Emerald” has something to do with the fourth largest wireless carrier in the country and something big on the horizon. One of TmoNew's trusted sources has uncovered information hinting that a potential “super-phone,” something along the lines of a “new Nexus One-like device,” is somewhere in the pipelines of T-Mobile's grasp. There are plenty of devices that come in mind, but they allege that it could be some kind of HTC Android device; much like the HTC Desire or EVO 4G. This isn't the first time we heard such interesting code names being used in the past by T-Mobile, such as Project Dark, but the green nature associated with “Project Emerald” does conjure up something big that could land T-Mobile lots of money. Whatever this turns out to be, it'll surely be interesting to see what future high-end offering will come to fruition out of all this.

look for the G2 coming out next month it will be running the new HSPA plus network and will have your keyboard along with 2.2 android. It will be an extremely slick phone

hopefully its something good.. hopefully t-mobile gets a really high end smartphone. because lets be honest look at at&t's, verizon n sprints phone selection they all have awesome phones. then u look at t-mobiles phone line up n err.. well its not that great.... like for example half of the phones t-mobile gets are edge only phones.. and last time i walked in an at&t store 3 days ago all of their phones and i mean all of them even the crappy ones that are free are all 3G phones. only the at&t go phones are edge ...

i also agree with u. i know not a lot of people out there need 3G ... but one thing i still cannot understand why does t-mobile keep getting all this ugly edge only phones??? like for example t-mobile got the crappy sony ericsson tm506 which the design was straight out ugly .. and on the other hand at&t gets alot of good looking phones from sony ericsson i cant remember all of them the only one i remember is the c905a which was an awesome phone.. also at&t n verizon get good looking phones from LG t-mobile doesnt even have LG phones.. and at&t and verizon n sprint get amazing good looking phones from samsung, htc , n motorola n LG n t-mobile always get the phones with the ugly designs ....

Actually, the only phones that T-mobile gets that are Edge only are the entry level flip phones....which are aimed at older customers that could care less about data speeds..the phones you probably look at are little more advanced than that. And the TM506 you mentioned? Loooonnnngg gone....it was replaced by the equinox which I might add is 3G. Are all t-mobiles phones 3G? no. Are they any phones I'd be interested in? No.

i am really looking forward to a powerful keyboard device the mytouch slide is ok but i would love for it to have enough power to do 10.1 flash....not too much to ask is it?.... my guess is they are gonna release a nexus one like device with froyo and with no 3g issues...

The mytouch slide will have enough power to do 10.1 flash. It will be one of the first to have "Froyo" besides the outcome of this "Project Emerald". Galen20K is exactly right.

yeah... tmo needs to step their s*** up... pronto. EVO 4G, DROID incredible, iPhone... theyre all flagship worthy phones... what does tmo have? A waist of good hardware running win mo... c'moonnn. For being the first carrier to have android, you would expect better. get that mytouch bull outta here and give us something worth buying.
