I can’t remember how old I was when the Sidekick first came out, but my friends who owned one (or several throughout the years) were the envy of my pre-smartphone eyes. How serendipitous it is that the brand should be relaunched with Android calling the shots. It comes a little too late for me — my desire to own a Sidekick has since subsided — but for many the reintroduction of the messaging phone could be just what they have been searching for. Today, the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G has become available for the low price of $99.99 on a two-year deal. You get your choice Pearl Magenta or Matte Black color schemes as well.
Whether you are running out to pick one up or just want to relive the glory days of the Sidekick franchise, head on over to AndroidForums to discuss the new 4G handset from T-Mobile. You can purchase the Sidekick 4G over at TMo’s site now.
