T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Hands-On and Unboxing [Video]

Looks like we've got the brand new T-Mobile Sidekick 4G in today for our ultimate pleasure and handson-edness! Not only do we have this lovely handset here in full working order, activated, shiny, perfectly lovely, we got the pink edition! Hooray forever! Now let's take a look at what it'll be like for all the consumers of the earth to be unboxing this lovely little beast, piece by piece. Looks like quite the hipster machine to me.

We have had an opportunity to take a peek at this device when we were back at CTIA 2011, clicking about here and there and photographing our eyes out, but nothing beats the ability to carry it around in your pocket. That's what we'll be doing for the next few days and weeks so we can get a good idea on how this device is going to be faring out in the field. Watch out for the custom user interface - heavy scrutiny ahead!

NOTE: this is actually the pink version, I'm just an idiot and didn't realize it in my haste.

See the video here and the close-up photos below, keep tuned to Android Community's front news feed here and our Facebook page at http://facebook.com/androidcommunity.com/ for unique content on this device from each! Then head back to our T-Mobile Sidekick 4G portal for all the coverage your eyeballs can handle!

    I would LOVE to know more about how strong the vibe function is, also. Interesting that it looks like it has TWO speakers – 1 in front and 1 in back!!

    Can u tell if it’s possible to modify the Internet settings for eventually using the phone on another network (after it has been unlocked of course).
