While I'm not a fan of Android and no longer a customer of T-Mobile, I was previously a fan of both and think it's great that T-Mobile will be getting another Android device as well as reviving the Sidekick. While it was low-end by comparison today I loved my last Sidekick even with it only being on EDGE and feel that the Sidekick brand still has a loyal following and has a lot of value as well. I think this could be a really great device, personally.

But its made by sammy n not the original manufactureres wanst it sharp who mdae sidekick?

Sorry T-Mobile but in my opinion your service sucked every time i left Providence.

Think it was Danger

Danger was the name of the OS. Sharp made the phones.

I liked Danger. It wasn't the greatest but it was the BREW before BREW.

Oh wow another sidekick. Ill pass I think the name has some loyal customers as well as scare off others. Sidekicks had a good run and now being android will help but not that much

frozencloud says:

cayce llyn says:

it actually does still have the swivel screen. It doesn't slide up.
