TMobile Drop Kicks Current Sidekicks from Smartphone Lineup
"As T-Mobile looks to further innovate and raise the bar for the next generation of the T-Mobile Sidekick, as of July 2, the Sidekick LX and Sidekick 2008 will no longer be available through T-Mobile, including retail stores, care, telesales, and online," the wireless company said in a statement.
If you're an existing Sidekick customer, no need to fret - T-Mobile says they'll continue to support the device. But is this really the end of the road for the Sidekick brand? Maybe not, as T-Mobile hinted at more products to come.
"Stay tuned for exciting updates in the months ahead, which we expect will provide customers with a new and fresh experience," T-Mobile said.
While nothing is official, Internet rumblings suggest T-Mobile is possibly working on an Android-based Sidekick, which would make sense given the rabid popularity of both the Sidekick brand/hardware and Google's Android platform.
