T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 review

 

We're not saying that the Sidekick 2008 is a bad phone - not at all. In fact, we wrote this entire review on its perfect little keyboard (in the body of an email message, of course, since the phone doesn't support Word documents). It's just...

T-Mobile Sidekick Review

 

There's nothing particularly wrong with the T-Mobile Sidekick, but it feels outdated compared with phones like the identically priced LG Voyager, which offers nearly all of the same features but also a 3G data connection, touchscreen, GPS, TV, and an...

Good e-mail interface with POP/IMAP support, Great typing experience, Customizable shells, 3.5mm headphone jack

Poor video recording, Sluggish upload speeds, No Wi-Fi or 3G data, Limited applications

T-Mobile Sidekick

 

At 7 ounces and 2.5 by 4.8 by 1.3 inches (HWD), the Sidekick is slightly larger and heavier than the previous version. Its 65,000-color display has good visibility indoors and out, and the internal lithium ion battery is rated for 3.5 hours talk time...

T-Mobile Sidekick Review

 

While the Sidekick lineup has had its successes, the market now is more competitive than ever with phones from other manufacturers providing the same features. So, does the T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 have what it takes to follow in the line of its...

T-Mobile Sidekick - '2008 Edition'

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't fulfill our entire Sidekick wish list. Still missing are Wi-Fi and 3G support. Those are long overdue, so we hope they'll be added for the next version. And GPS should really be here, too, since the users are going to want to...

Preview: T-Mobile Sidekick

 

T-Mobile has introduced its newest Sidekick. It offers some nice upgrades, and bests previous versions in size. While size matters, so does performance. Does it live up to the Sidekick name? Check out our video preview.

B+...A Good phone, not terrific

 

Buy this phone if you are addicted to text-based communication! (SMS/Text Messaging, Email, Instant Messaging.) It allows you to set up multiple email accounts like Gmail and POP3 access. The full QWERTY keyboard and awesome screen and d-pad/trackball...

Full QWERTY keyboard, brilliant screen, versatility, customization. The Sidekick 2008 is a pretty good phone overall. It is a terrific phone for text messaging, email and the occasional web browsing. (Weather, sports scores, myspace, etc.) I though for...

No Wi-Fi. This for me is a deal breaker. I really regret getting a phone without SOME kind of Wi-Fi, even if it is just 802.11a/b. It also is surprisingly bad at media support. It plays MP3s and WMAs, but only from the SD card (or measly internal...

Close collaboration with Tony Hawk, T-Mobile is providing Sidekick enthusiasts with a limited-edition version of the popular T-Mobile Sidekick LX this summer. Tony puts his personal design on the iconic device by giving it a true skateboard look. The...
