Man, can’t you just remember the days when the T-Mobile Sidekick was the hottest thing this side of the western world? Teenagers everywhere flocked to T-Mobile wherever they could in order to get their hands on the newest model; only to somehow destroy the hinge and get a replacement.
Well guess what, sidekick fans? T-Mobile is back in action with the Sidekick 4G! They have announced via Twitter that you will in fact be able to purchase your Sidekick 4G April 20th, but made no immediate mention of vendors (although Radioshack seems to have jumped the gun). This delightful re-vamp of the ‘Kick is going for a brave $99 dollars on contract, so expect sales to be somewhat promising.
You have probably seen Elijah’s hands-on with the Android 2.2 device, and from what he said, it looks like it might one again become the ruler of slide out qwerty keyboard fad phones. I mean, there aren’t that many left anyway, right? You can be sure the front facing camera and 1GHz processor will make up for any qualms you might have had in the past, and with Samsung behind this one, you know the GPU might be slightly beefed up from your usual sidekick experience.
