T-Mobile demos Sidekick 4G's social skills on video
The Sidekick was one of the most
popular handsets among heavy texters, but after T-Mobile was forced to
discontinue the crucial Danger network services, it was practically declared dead. We shouldn't lay blame on the carrier, though, as the service was operated mostly by Microsoft. Luckily, it wasn't long until the recently announced Sidekick 4G gave a second life to the ultimate texting
phone, which is now reborn even smarter with Android on board and 4G
HSPA+ support. That should make for a smooth transition, right?
The keyboard is one of the two things that makes the Sidekick a Sidekick, but unfortunately the second ingredient for the magic – the swivel screen – is missing on the next-generation of the phone. Nevertheless, its 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor coupled with deep social integration will turn some eyes. Want to see it in action? Check out T-Mobile's demo video below and let us know what's your opinion about the new Sidekick 4G!

I can not believe T-Mobile would publish this video that has no polish. This person needs to join a Toastmasters Group.
