Sliding Into Scarlet

Slide Picture

It looks like T-mobile is trying to push the Sidekick Slide one more time before excitment starts building over the new Sidekick…oops, did we say that? The original color name reported by BoyGeniusReports was a fierce-sounding “fire red.” It seems that this must have been a bit too intimidating for customers, as seen in this document, fire red has been replaced by scarlet. For those that want to drop your purple slides, and grab a new scarlet one, stop by your local T-mobile store on May 15th.

    I might get one. I need a phone for a minute. What do you mean by excitement building over the new Sidekick. If you have any info email me, or click on my name to go to my Myspace, and Myspace message me. Cause I need to know cause I was waiting for another Sidekick besides these.

  • Vision77

    I want to see what the microsoft danger aquisition will offer…Hmmm finally a “Fully Capable” Sidekick may be offered to Tmo users. Lets see if this next gen Sidekick is worth it.

  • Mystictrust

    I want blue :(

  • http://www.myspace.com/kingomdavid David Washington

    Responding to Mystictrust: To tell you the truth the original one was blue. I had it myself. It was like an metallic blue. Everyone claims its purple thou

  • Bashok

    no, it is purple, metallic purple to be exact

  • red scarlet

    To david washington

    I think this is the same as the other sidekick slide, only diference is that its red.
    I don’t think we will see any changes to the sidekick till the end of this year from microsoft

  • http://www.myspace.com/kingomdavid David Washington

    No Bashok its Blue. I have pictures, you want me to email it to you. Metalic Blue, it maybe be a bit purplelish but its blue. And red scarlet i’m talking about where they say “T-mobile is trying to push the Sidekick Slide one more time before excitment starts building over the new Sidekick…oops, did we say that?”, now, what does that mean. Rumor, and speculation of another Sidekick besides the Sidekick LX, and Slide?

  • Mystictrust

    Technically, the old one was midnight blue, but yeah… it looked like it could double as purple. It should be the shade of blue I see some PT Cruisers in :)

  • http://www.myspace.com/kingomdavid David Washington

    Thanks Mystictrust. Yeah, it could almost double as purple. I just get defensive when people say its purple, when I know I was looking at it, and it was like Mignight/Metallic Blue. Soory, Bashok if I was rude. I’m gone get this scarlet one to hold me out, till a decent 3G Smartphone releases.

  • Bashok

    hey its cool, you weren’t rude at all. But i emailed the TmoNews staff and they said that the new sidekick is something they can’t talk much about because they don’t know much info. (of coarse they not gonna tell us because this site only gives out accurate and definite news about t-mobile). But they did say that the new sidekick will probably, PROBABLY, be released as a back-to-school type of release. so expect it to arrive around the Q4 of 2008.

  • DarkJedi

    Purple, blue…be thankful you guys can see it, I used to work with a guy who was colorblind and he thought it looked gray!

  • http://www.myspace.com/kingomdavid David Washington

    Response to Bashok: What???!!! No!!!!!!!!! Q4 is a while. Well I hope I get this job to get that one too, if its true. Cause I need a phone right now, cause I don’t have a cell phone at all now, and I wanted to get the Sidekick Slide Scarlet. I hope it is true thou, cause I was looking for them to make another sidekick soon. LOL @ Jedi’s statement, but, thats really not funny, cause I thank god everyday, that I don’t have any abnormalities. So, Bashok what phone are you looking forward to?

  • Bashok

    @David: currently i have the Sony Ericsson P1i and im on T-mobile prepaid. But these past couple of weeks i was texting a lot more than usual so i thought that it might be time to get the sk slide since the sidekick prepaid is only $1 a day for unlimited texting. so far i still might get the metalic blue slide because the new sk color looks a little more pinkish than red. (thats what i think).

  • http://www.myspace.com/kingomdavid David Washington

    Oh ok. I didn’t know you could use the Sidekick Slide on prepaid. But, good luck with that. I hope that other Sidekick does come out Q4 this year, it’ll be out just around the right time, “My Birthday”, ^_^

  • http://www.myspace.com/kingomdavid David Washington

    Is the Sidekick Slide (Scarle) coming out the 12th or the 15th cause on the Upcoming phone calender for May it says the 12th; but, on this post it says the 15th?

  • Bashok

    the 15th

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/David_Undeniable_Washington/663495317 David Washington

    Ok, thank you Bashok.

  • Bashok

    oh im sorry David, it is actually on the 12th, as i have confirmed it by contacting TMonews.

  • David Washington

    Oh well thank you. Thats even better

  • http://Tmonews.com Richard Gray

    i already have the sidekick slide and i was wondering if i could trade mine in for the new color or does any one know where i can get it done

  • yoitzfresh

    i email t mobile like different times with different emails to see what they no.

    Most of them clam yes there is a Scarlet coming out soon.

    some say they dont know squat.

    Most say Mid-May.

    Some say they have no idea.

    Im really pissed ooff because i was about to get a new line with the purple/blue slide but i cant because im waiting on this.

    lord knows how long im going to be waiting.
