Android powered Sidekick handset seen in T-Mobile's future?
July 2nd came and went without much fanfare because it marked the last day that T-Mobile would be selling their latest line of Sidekick branded handsets. For a good stretch there, T-Mobile managed to attract younger audiences with their youth oriented line of Sidekick handsets which played to the strengths for that specific demographic it targeted. One would've imagined that all good things come to an end, however, there was an optimistic tone in a recent statement by the carrier as they said, “Stay tuned for exciting updates in the months ahead, which we expect will provide customers with a new and fresh experience.” Word has it that T-Mobile will continue to retain the brand name and may end up bringing it back from the dead in the form of some kind of Android powered smartphone. It's speculated that it would become available as soon as early next year with Gingerbread on board to continue its long and rich history. You really can't count this out especially when the Sidekick name is one of those things deeply ingrained into the minds of owners who sported the handset since its inception – just keep those fingers crossed tightly.
