Starting today, T-Mobile customers can stroll down to their local wireless store and walk out with a brand new Sidekick 4G. As announced earlier this month, the Sidekick 4G is now lining the retail and virtual shelves of the wireless carrier. For those expecting another Danger handset, think again as the Sidekick has been completely overhauled. No more Danger, no more Sidekick cloud service, the new Sidekick 4G is all about Android and Google’s cloud services.
It’s an ANdroid bonanza as the Sidekick 4G joins the G-Slate and the G2x as a trio of newcomers to T-Mobile as all three devices land in stores today. Spec-wise, the Sidekick includes the following:
- 1GHz processor
- 3.5″ TFT display (480 x 800 pixels)
- slide-out 5-row QWERTY keyboard
- 3MP rear-facing camera
- front-facing VGA camera
- HSPA+ connectivity
- 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n
- Bluetooth 3.0
- Android 2.2
This latest addition to T-Mobile’s Android lineup will cost you $99.99 after a mail-in rebate and a two-year customer agreement.
