Sidekick Has No KINs?


A while back, there were several rumors floating around of Magenta supposedly discontinuing the Sidekick line. Many thought that the T-Mobile Sidekick would be replaced with the rumored Microsoft “Project Pink” handsets for Verizon Wireless. Today, April 12, Verizon Wireless and Microsoft announced the KIN ONE and the KIN TWO which are devices targeted towards the younger social networking crowd. T-Mobile states that, even though these new devices are very similar to the T-Mobile Sidekick handset, Sidekick devices and the Sidekick brand will continue to be owned and supported by T-Mobile, and T-Mobile only. Additionally, there were also rumors of the upcoming myTouch Slide serving as a replacement for the T-Mobile Sidekick. Does this mean those rumors were incorrect? The world may never know. We’re currently looking into it and we’ll keep you guys updated! Leave your thoughts in the comments!
