(Updated: New Pic!) Sidekick 4G In The Wild!

Update: A couple of things have been pointed out, one it absolutely looks like there is a front facing camera present. Secondly, you can clearly see the Samsung etched logo on the back of the device. Most important, it seemingly retains the same form factor as the original Sidekick, happy face! This device is running Android 2.2.1.

Just three-seconds after we posted word of the upcoming Sidekick 4G being manufactured by Samsung, in the wild images hit our inbox! Oh how we love in the wild images and we are hopeful that our ninjas can send in a few more images of the homescreen and give us a good look at any possible Sidekick-only Android skin. Until then, just enjoy the pics!

    if its touch screen its gonna be weird…. the sidekick was a amzing phone and does not have to change the original factors of the first sidekicks it looks as though there trying to compete with other brands like at&t. But the sidekick was wildly popular and i hope that this one wont break… i mean really a kick stand? really? thats just unnecessary, but i am a 12yr old that loves sidekicks and has since i was at least 7. So i will be buying one an trying it out. :)

    If those keys on the keyboard are rubber — I’m out!! I have the sidekick LX and these rubber keys are awful! They are literally wearing away and I haven’t had this phone a whole year yet. I’ve been patiently waiting to upgrade to wait and see if I want to stick with the sidekick or move on to a different smartphone. I don’t know, the pictures aren’t doing much for me. But I guess they say don’t jude a book by it’s cover!

    SK4G LOOKS MAD UGLY

  • TeetsMagee

    I swear after so many Sidekick models and such a following, if the SK4G doesn’t have a camera WITH FLASH, I am going to LOSE IT! It is 2011, people! Put a damn flash on these cameras!

    • TallulahJac

      hell even the lx 09 had a flash please don’t go backwards!

    • mattac

      The SK LX-09′ has a flash

      • Shortypants1976

        ya that was a great feature and it also had a better camera megapixel. there isnt a flash on the sidekick 4g witch means they totally downgraded the sk lower megipixels and no flash. well i am waiting untill march to get my sidekick and ill get it although all the reviews i look at make me think twice about it. i loved my sidekick lx 09 and miss it i wasnt planning on upgrading my phone after that and they forced me to. i got the nokia nuron and let me tell you never ever ever ever buy the nokia nuron have had nothing but issues with this phone. the only thing i liked about it was the apps but it has many issues. i got a new one comming in the mail we will see if it does the same. i cryed the day i got the letter they were stopping danger because the phone was me it was what i wanted with a smart phone. i loved the sk lx 09. RIP sk lx 09.

      Idk where you’ve been but the sidekick lx 09 has flash bud lol

  • sidekicker4life

    the “camera” in the front isn’t a camera its the BALL or maybe its censored, who knows but if you look closely to the image of the back there is the camera!

    • AidenDior

      There is a Camera on the front. Look @ the top right corner of the screen.

      • Sarah

        The thing in the top right corner is a logo! The top left is the ol’ light sensor. The middle right is the track wheel. The camera is clearly seen on the BACK of the phone.

        • Matt

          your not looking in the right spot; on video calling phones, their are 2 cameras (front and back), the one in front is used to video chat while looking at your screen to see the other person, the one in back is used to take pics and videos while viewing what your capturing on your screen.

        • Tito!

    • Tito!

      • Leviwarfel

        It’s a ‘pop tilt’ screen.

    There’s no flash on the camera on the back which sucks!! If they are going to make a sidekick 4g why wouldn’t they put a flash for the camera!?

It’s might be a tv channel, Game video, text messages, video chatter anywhere in these device. I’m Deaf has be objective that sidekick 4 the 4G wireless as well same Galaxy S some II what these point different insurance the prices. it’s national in server device…as good image artist deign the sidekick idea T-mobile technically.

    Give me digits, or give me death!

    QWERTY+DEDICATED NUMBERS!!! This is all I want from an Android (well 512MB+[768MB] and 1GHz+ CPU also 5MP+).

    Once it is “working fully,” I hope it drops VANILLA! I’d pay early termination w/verizon TODAY for Vanilla Android with this beast if the specs are up to par!

  • Joemsnicky Trasher44

    i want a signature one, not the sLider one.. ..xDD

  • Eric Energy

    As long as current sidekick users keep there unlimited data plan they get 50 bucks rebate when getting the new phone. The new phones cost? 150 :) so 100 with the rebate, it should be released before they shut off service to the old sidekicks using Microsofts servers , theirs a app in the store that will save all contacts to ur SD card thats free

  • Tabasco1tx

    Yeah if its Samsung I’m not interested. No Samsung,no way.I’ll buy a iPhone first and jailbreak it and use it before I get another Samsung phone.

  • WSKID

    Looks Really Nice Can’t WAIT!!

  • Ladybug Rock101

    looks cool

  • Faye chassis

    if anyone has facebook i will post a discussion about the new sidekick my friend and i are having a disagreement he says the new one is still catered to kids. I would love to get some input my user name is Faye chassis

    • http://tmonews.com David

      Catered to kids? No. Built with a younger generation in mind? Absolutely. Perfect for adults who crave a hardware keyboard? Hell yes.

  • Shantel

    I dont like it because the swivel screen is what made the sidekick unique and they took it away!

  • Bladeofhonor123

    will there be a sidekick plan for t-mobile now?

  • Calib74
