The feature set will include a 1.3 megapixel camera, the ability to send/receive email, mobiTV, AT&T Navigator and a touch screen. The device will support quad-band frequencies for GSM/EDGE and dual-band for 3G.
The Sidekick look-a-like will be available in three colors: gray, orange and green. The price point is speculated to be $99.99 after a 2 year contract. It is expected to hit the stores late this month.

y'know, not all of us have to be emotionally unstable...and really, no need to call names. i guess some people have certain appointments to take care of. hope your mom gives you your meds on time or you'll have to have another APPOINTMENT....

You should get the quickfire. Its got wifi internet and the matrix is just a messaging phone (if you are in to the "just messaging" thing). And not to mention its way bigger and it has a touchscreen with the push out querty keyboard, the matrix is $80 and the quickfire is $100, so why not spend $20 more for a way better phone? I agree with what you say about big fingers, the quickfire is made for people with bigger hands. And I also heard it will not be coming out in late october (which is now) but november, hopes its not late november because I'm dying to get this phone!!! So if you ask me, I'd get the quickfire.

It's the AT&T version of T-Mobile's Sidekick! And that's not a bad thing.

u sure it has a touch screen? everywhere else i read about this they didnt mention a touch screen. and i doubt it is considering the price tag.

True, also, people seem to be in this illusion that touch screen phones must cost a lot of money. The truth is that they are very cheap to make, but the hype of the iphone and its pricing just made it the "it" feature. Therefore right now touch screen phones are relatively pricey. They'll come down eventually, as did camera phones. Remember when something like an LG VX6000 cost $150? Its all got to do with what people want.

well, there's more than one type of touchscreen. The screens for the iphone, Blackberry Storm, and Tmobile G1 have capacitive screens that actually do cost more to produce. Most of the other touch screen phones have resistive screens.http://www.phonearena.com/html

not a smart phone, so you can get the 15 dollar data plan, as opposed to the 30 pda plan. also, check out the pantech matrix, we just got it in stores on thursday. and keep an eye out for what htc has for us. (ps, i work at att)
