In a brief follow-up to our story earlier this week on the discontinuation of the Sidekick 4G, T-Mobile sent The Verge a brief statement about the Sidekick 4G.
While the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G is being retired, it doesn’t mean we are discontinuing the T-Mobile Sidekick line. T-Mobile continues to update and expand its 4G product portfolio and we’ll keep you posted when we have news to share on T-Mobile’s latest 4G devices.
This confirms our intel that the Sidekick 4G is in fact being retired and our assumption that T-Mobile hopes to continue the Sidekick line down the road. There is a lot of nostalgic value for Sidekick owners and we imagine T-Mobile will look to continue improving the Sidekick hardware and Android overlay. The Sidekick 4G remains one of the best QWERTY devices I’ve ever used and while it’s a mid-range device, it’s a great value. You can still pick up the Sidekick 4G on T-Mobile’s website for $329.99 or free on contract.
