Gigaom Review: Sidekick 4G Is a Teenage Dream

Gigaom: T-Mobile has teamed up with Samsung to revive the Sidekick brand, once a highly popular messaging phone for the hip, younger crowd. The $99 Sidekick 4G (after $50 rebate and with qualifying plan contract) isn’t just a throwback to the old phones, however. The device is built on the Google Android platform, supports T-Mobile’s 4G data network and uses a lot of hardware from Samsung’s popular Galaxy S smartphone, which sold more than 10 million units last year.

The story is too old to be commented.

I used to have a Sidekick before I got my first iPhone. This was back in high school! Pretty sweet that it's running Android now.

Why do all kids have to have smartphones these days? Cheap phones still do the same as they did 10 years ago...
