T-Mobile teasing us with launch of new mobile phone, rumored to be “The Vibrant”

T-Mobile is teasing users with a new phone.
The image that you see here come from their site, and these pink blocks are slowly disappearing to reveal a rebus that is probably the name of the new phone. You know what a rebus is, right? I think the last time I saw them was in elementary school, where you add and subtract words, letters, and pictures to solve a puzzle.
I think that you can see that the first few clues are obviously “Samsung”. If that is spoiler to some, then all I’ve got to say is: “you would have figured it out eventually”. I’ve got a major spoiler after the jump.
It would appear that the name of it is the Vibrant, which was leaked on T-Mobile’s Twitter account. It looks like the Vibrant is the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S series. I included a video of the Galaxy that I filmed at CTIA last March. I believe that the AT&T version is the Captivate.
It will have a 4-inch touch screen, 5 megapixel camera, and Samsung 1GHz Hummingbird processor. I suppose we will find out more in the next few days, when the time runs out on this puzzle.
We don’t have the formal release date and pricing of the Vibrant, but there is some sort of launch event planned for June 29.
