We’ve got the brand spanking new T-Mobile Sidekick 4G in, the pink one, not that that makes any difference (it totally does!) and we’re ramping up with tests galore. The first one we’ve got here for you is the basic speed test, testing ping, upload, and download speeds based on location with T-Mobile’s 4G network. The place we’re testing at is Saint Paul, Minnesota, if you want to know – speedy enough for you?

It’s certainly not a ThunderBolt, that’s for sure, but it’s not the worst we’ve ever seen, certainly. This is only the first of a plethora of tests we’ll be administering to this device as we work out how well it works and how well it’s going to work for you. Flipping around and typing all nice and whatnot aside – will the numbers matter? We’ll see.

Meanwhile check out our unboxing video as well as all the sweet posts we’ve had in the past with this particular device, in particular the massive hands-on experience we had with it back in Orlando. CTIA 2011 was a place of much shininess, let me tell you – both versions of this handset were there to be experienced for us and for you!
