We thought we’d have to wait until today to get a first look at the Sidekick 4G but the lucky folks at Laptop Mag have managed to get the very first hands on. Unfortunately without an available data connection they weren’t able to see just how well the phone holds up on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ 21 network but it’s always nice to get a look at the phone that isn’t a marketing video.
While no release date has been announced ,T-Mobile says the Sidekick 4G will land at $99.99 after a $50 mail in rebate when signing up for a two-year unlimited data package. If you want to take advantage of T-Mobile’s less advantageous data packages, you’ll pay a little more (no rebate) for the Sidekick 4G, $149.99 to be exact without the rebate.
Stay tuned for our very own hands on later today!
