Review: T-Mobile Sidekick iD

 

It's easy to see why MySpace moppets love the Sidekick: It's cute, uncomplicated, and cheap. It's also an IM addict's dream: The wide, tactile keyboard...

Trackball and icon-based interface make for blissful navigation. Decent gameplay with D-pad. Nearly eight hours of talk time

No camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, memory card slot, or audio player. Stuck in slow gear on GPRS network. Just had its cool factor stolen by iPhone

Sidekick ID

 

The latest member of T-Mobile's Sidekick family of cell phone/PDA hybrids for people who'd just as soon type as talk targets a youthful, budget-minded crowd.

Terrific keyboard Customizable, colorful design

No camera or expansion slot So-so sceen

We'll be testing the Sidekick ID's battery life soon, but as yet I have no sense of how the removable and rechargeable battery will hold up. Still, if you're looking for a deal on a phone with good messaging and e-mail features--perhaps for a younger...

Sidekick iD lowers the barriers to push e-mail and mobile IM.

Extremely easy to use. Push e-mail. Removable, reconfigurable covers. Lower price.

It has the feature set of a 2004 device.

T-Mobile Sidekick iD Review

 

The Sidekick iD is the latest entry in this line of consumer-oriented smartphones. It uses the same form-factor as the Sidekick 3, but to lower the cost many of the features of this earlier model have been taken out.

Landscape-oriented screen and keyboard, Outstanding battery life

T-Mobile Sidekick iD Review

 

Way back in 2003, I reviewed the monochrome HipTop from Danger, Inc., which T-Mobile had just picked up as the Sidekick. Although I was steeped in the Palm OS at that point, I had to admit that the Sidekick was the best fusion of phone, Internet, and...

I'm still thinking about giving the Sidekick iD a place in my pocket, but I may have to check out the Sidekick 3 first. I really thought I'd never settle for less than a Treo, but I have to admit that Danger's simpler, wireless sync approach is compelling

Snapshot: T-Mobile Sidekick iD

 

T-Mobile has brought the Sidekick range to a new market segment with the introduction of the Sidekick iD, a new lower-cost version of the iconic QWERTY messaging device.

Madman for text messages and making

 

From T-Mobile on Sidekick.com video is not difficult to guess: Sidekick iD lock the target user groups in the love life of young people, Sidekick iD Road apparently fine here, so appreciate the Sidekick iD is also not only me one person.

Horizontal screen design and keyboard feel good
