T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Arrives April 20th For $100



T-Mobile has announced via Twitter that the upcoming Samsung-made Sidekick 4G will be hitting shelves on April 20th for a mere $99 when paired with a new two-year contract and an unlimited data plan.

The official announcement comes after Radio Shack essentially ruined T-Mobile’s announcement by revealing that that April 20th would in fact be the release date for the Sidekick 4G. Not the first time a retailer has done this and certainly not the last.

The Sidekick 4G will be the first Sidekick made by Samsung. It is also the first Sidekick with a touchscreen and the first Sidekick with Android on board.

The handset features 3.5 inch screen, the familiar Sidekick keyboard, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, a 3MP rear camera, front-facing camera, and it will be powered by Android 2.2 right out of the box.

The Sidekick 4G release date confirmation comes on the heels of T-Mobile announcing that the highly anticipated G2x would launch online April 15th and hit shelves on April 20th.

T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Hands-On

    I think it is exciting that T-Mobile has used Android as the operating system for the new Sidekick 4G. Sure there are a few things that are missing from this phone such as a flash on the camera, a bigger screen, and the swivel feature, but I am sure these things can be overlooked since there is a lot more that is improving the view of the last Sidekick. I have a MyTouch from T-Mobile so I have been playing with Android for a long time. Sidekick is pretty cool too, so since they combined them into one, it should be an awesome phone. One app that I will be getting on the Sidekick 4G will be the DISH Remote Access app. This app allows me to watch TV anywhere in the world from my 922 SlingLoaded DVR. As a DISH Network customer and employee, I have had a lot of time to use this app on the MyTouch so it should be great on the Sidekick, especially if the phone is on 4G!
