The T-Mobile Sidekick 4G continues the Sidekick's legacy as an excellent messaging device and also serves as a great entry-level smartphone.
E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, highlights the latest in interactive games.
With the design improvements and addition of features such as 3G and GPS, the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 graduates from a simple messaging handheld to a real connected, all-in-one communication device for the younger crowd.
Pricing not available
Fans of messaging phones will appreciate that the reasonably-priced Optimus F3Q carries out the basics without breaking a sweat. Its unfortunately scant on-board storage is not a deal-breaker.
With the new features, extra level of customization, and affordable price tag, the T-Mobile Sidekick is a good choice for the carrier's younger customers looking for an all-in-one communication device.
The carrier's new "Never Settle" promotion will give Verizon customers a free phone to play with for 14 days and then pay Verizon's early termination fee for customers who switch over permanently.
Its pitch to consumers pays off with a gain of 1.2 million customers to hold T-Mobile at bay. Still, Sprint's aggressive promotions have also brought mounting losses.
The answer is a little complicated, but T-Mobile will almost certainly officially eclipse Sprint in the current quarter.
The smartphone, which is Sony's answer to popular Android-based devices, mysteriously disappeared from T-Mobile a month ago, and neither the carrier nor Sony would say why.
No reasons for the discontinuation have been given but Sony cannot be happy that its flagship handset is down to one major US carrier.
The Uncarrier march continues to pick up steam, but the growth is coming at a cost as the wireless carrier posts another loss because of its aggressive promotions.
