Samsung confirms that tethering & mobile hotspot will be a go with the Sidekick 4G

Finally seeing a major reboot to the series, Samsung has confirmed that the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G will support tethering and mobile hotpot from the start. Moreover, it will ship with a 2GB microSD card which supplements the built-in 1GB of internal storage. Being an HSPA+ enabled device, the inclusion of tethering and mobile hotspot functionality will undoubtedly be an appreciated thing for potential future owners.
Aside from that, there still isn’t a confirmed date on when the handset will launch. However, it should only be a matter of time before it’s known – even more, we might hopefully hear something about it during CTIA 2011.
If you want a 5mp camera, go talk to canon. Why do you need a 5mp camera on a "non-smartphone". if you want a 5mp camera on a phone, grow up lol. Get out of the sidekick era...Are you going to be editing pictures? I don't understand why people need 15+ megapixel cameras on cellphones....

This phone runs Android 2.2 OS. Your telling me this is not a smart phone??? WOW! And I'm asking for 5mp cam. Its Common on MOST* 2010-2011 Smartphones (Most Androids,Iphone4,Blackberries,all Wp7,Hp Palm 2...ect). I'm not asking for no 8mp or 12 mp OK, just one that is good enough but not overboard.

Right, I'm a douche...Just because a phone is running android 2.2 does NOT mean its a smartphone. Its also whats under the hood....processor, ram, multi-tasking things of that nature...this COULD be a smartphone don't get me wrong. But I'm basing my previous comments on previous sidekick models...and from the specs presented here this looks like a quick messaging device. Sorry if stating facts makes me a douche, have a good day.
