T-Mobile Sidekick Slide mobile phone

 

T-Mobile has launched its third Sidekick device that promises messaging on the go for the "kids". Should you bother, or forget Paris Hilton and grab one sharpish?

Qwerty keyboard, large screen, instant messaging support

Only 1.3 megapixel camera, quad-band, no Wi-Fi

The T-Mobile Sidekick Slide looks to be a good messaging phone for the "kids". The robust redesign, QWERTY keyboard, large screen and instant messaging features will certainly appeal.

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide review

 

Motorola-made Sidekick goes for the youth market

Automatic back up of data ; Qwerty keyboard ; Easy messaging features ; Memory card supplied

Large and heavy ; Low quality camera with no video ; Limited Bluetooth ; Lack of 3G limits multimedia facilities

The Sidekick remains an attractive break from the norm, but it lacks too much by way of features to represent a truly appealing proposition

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide

 

The Sidekick loses its swivel and gains a slide, but will it still cut it?

However, Motorola has retained many of the other features that made the Sidekick unique. It still has a sideways on orientation, which makes it feel more like a games console than a mobile, and means you have to hold it in both hands to use the mini...

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide

 

There are plenty of messaging smartphones around, from BlackBerries to Windows Mobile smartphones, but, with the exception of Palm's Treo 500v (page 44), most are aimed at business users and can be tricky to use. The Sidekick Slide has a proper...

Mobile messaging sorted with a snick. Love or hate the look, it's a neat solution to mobile messaging.

Improved streamlined design. Highly thummable QWERTY. Email set up is a cinch. Incredibly user-friendly. Free data back-up service.

Slowish GPRS download speeds. Average camera. No video capabilities. Limited Bluetooth abilities.

The Sidekick remains the BlackBerry messaging device for the cooler mySpace brigade. But can the new Slide model still keep it real with the young'uns?

The social networking generation are on easy messaging street with the new stylish Slide. Even a half-baked feature set can't detract from this Sidekick being a superb mobile email device for the young at heart.

T-Mobile - Sidekick Slide

 

The Sidekick Slide is a funny old thing. Exclusive to T-Mobile in the UK, it looks like no other mobile phone we've seen - apart from other members of the Sidekick family. And while it does ...

Distinctive, though chunky, the Sidekick Slide is definitely one for a certain type of in-crowd. Just make sure you have a large pocket to carry it in.

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide

 

It's been an ultra-trendy gadget of choice for US hipsters to keep up with their emailing and messaging. But the Sidekick has yet to really make its fashion mark in the UK. But T-Mobile is hoping this slimmer, smarter version will change that

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide Test Report

 

Offsetting the compact, convenient design are a cramped keyboard and smaller screen (in comparison with the Sidekick LX).

Compact for a Sidekick ; One-handed slide design

Cramped keyboard

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide

 

Even with a slightly new form factor and features, T-Mobile's new Sidekick Slide will have a hard time keeping up with other sliders.
