Isn't Sidekick data plans already the same as a smartphone? ($24.99 data, $34.99 data & text)
Blackberry, Android, and Windows Mobile already does this stuff without the montly $5 fee.

So your gonna have a phone that does a fraction of what a PDA does and cost $5 more a month to do it?

Whats another option? Buy a smartphone just so you can use Microsoft Exchange Email?

Why bother when you (the sidekick owner) can simply get the update and keep it moving?

Dash 3G is $169.99 with the same options

HTC G1 is $149.99 with the sa...

You continue to talk about new customers and their options. Meanwhile I'm talking about existing customers who want more out of their sidekicks.

If you already own a sidekick and can not upgrade nor have the funds to buy a new smartphone, here is a update for you.

If you don't want all the complications a smartphone can provide you along with its many functions, then a sidekick could be for you also.

Last but not least; it doesn't matter how much you might dislike the sidekick nor does it matter how much better a Dash, Blackberry or G1 are. We have options. There is no 1 better phone, there is only personal preference. I could lay down all 4 phones (Dash, Blackberry 8900, G1 and Sidekick 09) with the price right next to them and fe...
