Hands on with T-Mobile’s Sidekick 4G, again [video]

March 23rd, 2011 at 4:41 PM

We swung by Samsung’s booth at CTIA Wireless on Wednesday to get some more hands-on time with the Sidekick 4G, soon to launch on T-Mobile. Somewhere in the back of our minds we still had the stigma that the Sidekick was a dead messaging phone of yesteryear, but that’s not really the case. The Sidekick 4G rocks Android 2.2 (Froyo) with a custom user interface that has more neon than a 1980’s themed frat-party, and, believe it or not, that’s actually what makes the phone pretty compelling. The screen is bright, and the colors remind us that the Sidekick 4G is all about being a party in your pocket. The keyboard was easy to type on and Sidekick fans will definitely feel right at home. The device’s pop-out hinge felt sturdy and has a nice snap to it, and we really like the overall build quality. Seriously, if you’ve been missing your Sidekick like the deserts miss the rain, this handset is going to be right up your alley. For a more in-depth read, check out our hands-on from Tuesday. Otherwise, hit the jump for a video tour of the Sidekick 4G in action.
