T-Mobile Sidekick 4G successor coming soon?
There comes a moment in the lifetime of every handset when it has to step down and free up space for the newcomers. Such is the case with the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G, which is now getting discontinued after being on the market for a bit less than one year. The carrier itself spilled the beans while speaking with The Verge, effectively confirming the rumors that surfaced a few days back.

However, it seems like a successor to the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G is already on the carrier's agenda. Here is what a company representative stated during that same conversation:

So yeah, a new Sidekick smartphone might launch soon for all you physical keyboard lovers out there. And who knows, instead of a mid-range handset, it could be a high-end device this time with a powerful processor, high-resolution display, and an awesome camera. What do you guys think? Is anyone excited about a potential Sidekick smartphone, or have you already accepted the fact that smartphones with physical keyboards are nearing extinction? Let us know by dropping a comment below.

it will stay a mid-range phone due to its reputation as being a savvy affordable device. unfortunately that means it will have many flaws as this one did...

well i really hope they do come out with a new sidekick, litterally it was a mistake to take away the sidekicks one true unique quAlity the kickflip screen or the customizable lights and vibrations and the cursor ball, thats what brought the attention to the phones most! For the great comeback it actually was a disappointment because, sidekick needs to step it up, and maybe change a few specs on the phone to draw attention, i got a few ideas:)
