FCC Reveals Motorola Sidekick Slide for T-Mobile
Sep 18, 2007, 8:54 PM by (staff)
Documents seen on the FCC site today show the new Sidekick Slide manufactured by Motorola and likely bound for T-Mobile. The most noticeable aspect of the Sidekick Slide is that the screen slides up rather than spins around to reveal the five-line QWERTY keyboard underneath. Otherwise the form factor is similar in concept to the Sidekick 3. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE radios, as well as Bluetooth 1.2. It packs a 1.3 Megapixel camera, music player, and microSD slot for added storage. It also has a host of messaging applications, including email and instant messaging. Based on screen shots in the user manual, the Slide has a refined interface and higher resolution screen. It is compatible with T-Mobile's MyFaves program. No word on when it will go on sale or how much it will cost.

The other Sidekick is called the Sidekick LX, manufactured by Sharp, the orginal maker.
the LX seem to be a little better than the slide when it comes to many things. It also keeps the flip up screen function as well, opposed the the slide.
