T-Mobile confirms Sidekick 4G release date

T-Mobile USA has confirmed that the Sidekick 4G will arrive on its network come April 20. The news comes as little surprise, however, since RadioShack already announced the launch date back at the end of last month.

Still, we won't argue with official confirmation, and we know plenty of would-be Sidekick buyers who will likely feel the same way. The original series of devices built up a strong following, though it remains to be seen how many of them will follow the reskinned Android UI and familiar aesthetic over to the new-generation platform.

Pricing for the messaging-centric handset will be from $99.99 with a new, two-year agreement including an unlimited data plan. For more on the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G check out our full hands-on.

    I am glad that they have Android as the OS for the Sidekick. I had an older Sidekick and having lost my contacts because a certain server had gone down for a few days, I think it will be a huge improvement. As soon as this phone shows up in stores, I am going to be getting one for myself. The first app that I will download will be the DISH Remote Access app. Being a DISH Network customer and employee, I have been playing with the app for a long time on my Samsung Vibrant. It is perfect on my current phone, so I am sure it will be awesome on the Sidekick 4G. I can’t wait until this phone comes out!

    I can’t wait to get my Sidekick 4G! I’m currently using HTC’s HD2 and man I’ll be so glad to get away from Windows OS and the HD2’s touchscreen only features. I’ve missed the QWERTY keyboard so much and with Windows OS, I feel like I’m so limited! Although I’ve owned plenty of the older sidekick models, I have yet to own a phone with the Android OS so this should be interesting. Hopefully it doesn’t lock-up the way my HD2 does.
