Today T-Mobile announced the newest version of the Sidekick. The 2008 model has a smaller footprint than previous generations of the Sidekick, but it retains the familiar, swivel-out screen, controls and track ball. The stand-out feature are the Sidekick's interchangeable shells. Customers will be able to use the T-Mobile web site to design their own custom shells ($15) or pick from pre-designed shells to personalize their Sidekick. The Sidekick 2008 has quad-band GSM/EDGE radios, as well as Bluetooth 2.0 with support for stereo Bluetooth playback. It ups the camera to 2 megapixels with video capture, and has a microSD card slot for additional media. It is boxed with a 512MB card. It can access T-Mobile's MyFaves calling plan, as well as multiple email and IM accounts. The screen is a 2.6-inch WQVGA display, and the Sidekick 2008 uses USB for data transfer. It will be available online and in select stores for $150 with new agreement.

Change the name to Sidekick 2006?

Who wants this POS. Do they really think people are going to ditch their lx just for changeable plates. I'm not understanding. And I hardly find this phone to represent 2008. 2008 is about 3g, wifi, touch screen, 3mp camera or higher, and etc. Welcome to 2006 Sharp. Sorry for ranting but I love my sidekick II and I feel like the new sidekick are progressing slowly.
Well my store sold out in less then 10 min so guess some peopel like it.
I agree! I'm sooo leaving T-Mobile as soon as this contract is over. Hell I think it is worth it just to pay my way out of the contract. I don't give a crap about other sidekicks! Can we get something NEW and FRESH?
If you don't care about the Sidekick than it's not your thing. Spend a day working in telesales and you will realize that there are more than enough people who do.
