Hopefully they change the design. Previous sidekicks were too large and bulky. They did have a superb keyboard though. As a person who despises physical qwerty's I did enjoy the sidekicks more than any other.

just because it carrys the sidekick brand name, doesnt mean its going to be a crappy teen phone. the sidekick rumors have been around for a while and they all point to a high end android device. basically, the screen spins out instead of slides, and thats how they are keeping the "sidekick" moniker on it. other than that, think 4 inch screen with full sized keyboard according to rumors. does that sound like a crap phone?
