R.I.P. Sidekick?
A new, unproven tipster has just passed along some news to BGR regarding the T-Mobile Sidekick. According to the info, the upcoming launch of the Android flavored myTouch Slide means the end of the road for the Sidekick. T-Mobile is phasing out sales of the Danger/Microsoft device. Will it be replaced by the previously reported on  Zune/Project Pink phone? The myTouch Slide is a physical QWERTY enabled version of the Magic and is also known as the myTouch Espresso or the myTouch 2. You might recall that last year, Sidekick owners found that some of their personal data had  disappeared from their phone and although Microsoft was able to eventually return most of the data, it has left a mark on the handset that it cannot easily wash away.

Haha I just posted a tweet the other day how sidekicks were so high school '06. I loved my sk. Again. In '06. But they ran their course. But I do still love That screen swivel.

Actually the sidekick line was very popular with the deaf community not just the teeny bopers, but yes i do think it has that teenage stigma. If they are phasing out the sidekick line then something is here to take its place keyboard enabled android phones makes sense especially the ones running motoblur.

Who cares if you think the phone sucks. The phone has a market that it draws from. But I think the market is going towards PDAs nowadays. i am seeing more and more kids buying Blackberries and iPhones. There really isn't a need for a "teenager" phone.
