AT&T and Sharp today announced the addition of the FX to AT&T's collection of QWERTY-equipped quick messaging devices. AT&T says that this is the first device from Sharp to be added to its roster of phones.

For $10 per month, FX users will have access to live TV on ABC Mobile, Adult Swim Mobile, CBS Mobile, CNBC, CNN Mobile, COMEDY CENTRAL, Disney Channel, ESPN Mobile TV, FOX Mobile, msnbc, MTV, NBC 2Go, Nickelodeon and the movie channel Crackle. The FX is a slider with a full keyboard for messaging. It has a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, Bluetooth 2.1, HTML browser, AT&T Social Net software, and AT&T Navigator. AT&T said the FX will go on sale July 25 for $100 after mail-in rebate with new agreement (requiring $20 minimum messaging and/or data plan).

Is this literally the same phone, or is this the sequel, or spiritual successor? Did the same company make the hardware? (Don't anyone say "PCD made the quickfire" because PCD is a marketing company not a manufacturer)

I'm not a GSM handset expert, but at first glance it appears as though they just took the quickfire mold and made it out of black plastic instead of gray. All I remember about the quickfire was a recall early in its life.

Anybody know more about this?

Sidekick wannabe?

Since T-Mobile stopped selling the Sidekick's, looks like AT&T is trying to get in on things.
I wouldnt say wannabe because Sharp is the maker of sidekicks
Loos more like an updated to the AT&T Quickfire which failed about two years ago.

That IS a Sidekick--Sharp just doesn't call it that.

does this craptastic phone need a data plan?????

It's not going to perform like an iPhone 4, data speed wise. So why not lower the price for data? EEEEEEEEVIL 👿 🤣
That doesn't make sense. What does a $20 data and/or text requirement have anything to do with an iPhone 4's data plan?
The $20 feature requirement can be any combination of text OR data features. (i.e. even $20 unlimited texting, with no data)

Sharp isn't giving up so easily (even though they probably should) 😛
Sharp is a step below keyocera in quality, ugh i feel sorry for anybody who gets stuck with this junk.
