Here is the link. Springfield Armory Can't find any info on caliber though. Guessing it will be a .45 compact.
Not to be trendy, but I personally would like more options as far as slim guns go as well. Glock has the G36, Springfield should introduce something slim as well :D.
I think the .45 compact would be the logical guess taking their past release history. A nice, slim single-stack compact would be great though... especially for the Mrs. She loves her XD9sc but wants to start thigh carrying in dresses and the XD9sc is pretty thick and blocky for thigh carry. She would definitely welcome a single-stack I'm sure. My guess is still the .45 compact though.
I would like to see a .357sig in a XDM

You're not going to believe this but it's a .45 GAP!!!!
They offer both a standard length 4.6 inches or an extended 5.3 inch barrel.
With either of those barrel lengths, one would be able to get fantastic muzzle velocities from the .357 SIG cartridge.
It is real easy to convert the gun to .357 SIG. Here is a XD(m) owner who made a real nice video all about doing this:
Bar-Sto is now making .357 SIG barrels for the XD(m) as well. Only standard length offered, and it costs $45 more than the Storm Lake barrel.
Please god make it a 10MM!!! I mean I really need one! a compact 10MM I promise I will be good and never ask for anything else.
To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women
I'd be curious to see if they go the slim 9mm route.

Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
I thought that the compact models had already been announced? Is this really news?
Probably a SC .45 or C .45.
