A Legacy Lives On: T-Mobile Sidekick Reborn As The Android-Powered Sidekick 4G
Call me a nerd, or call me nostalgic ? but I loved the Sidekick series. Though that love fizzled over time (partially due to hardware issues in the later Sidekicks, partially due to the fact that smartphone prices plummeted while their user-friendliness skyrocketed), the first three Sidekicks are still some of my favorite devices ever. Today, just two weeks after T-Mobile and Microsoft announced that they're pulling the plug on the old Sidekick cloud servers, T-Mobile is officially unveiling something they (and I) hope can bring life back to the Sidekick series: the Android-powered, Samsung-made Sidekick 4G.
