Side Kick

Garbage is: Rolling Eyes The QWERTY keyboard is a disappointment. The keys are small (even for a smartphone), slippery, and hard to press.

Dialing a phone number is garbage. You have to slide the screen open and enter the number using the keyboard. (If you've already entered a contact into your address book, you can initiate a call with the phone closed.) Once the call is connected, you can close the phone--and to talk, you'll have to. This additional step isn't a deal-breaker, but it’s a pain. The sidekick is also bulky and heavy when on a call.

The Slide, supports the EDGE data network. This is not a true high-speed, 3G data network, and it shows: Pages and images can be slow to load.

Software is a true weakness for all Sidekick...

Perfect summary of the Sidekick Slide. The phone being reviewed, though, is not the Slide. Wink

All the new sidekicks(except for the slide) use rubber keys. And I get a lot of customers tell me its the best keyboard they've used because the keys are spread out unlike some smartphones.
