Well, there was some pretty bleak news in today’s Q1 subscriber report but there was a bright spot for the G1.

Reports are coming in strong and steady that April 21st is definitely going to be a Sidekick launch party. All that hope for the next Android device needs to get swept aside for the moment and focus on the Sidekick line, still a T-mobile staple.
