Likely due to the recent introduction of the oh-so-mediocre Sidekick 2008, the Sidekick Slide appears to have been unceremoniously removed from T-Mobile’s catalog. Online stock is completely depleted, with stores selling off their limited inventory to the final few customers that are foolish fast enough to get there in time. The Slide was Motorola’s first entry into the Sidekick world, and was plagued with problems from launch. While this handset was by no means one of Moto’s biggest sellers, it can’t help the ailing company’s bottom line or morale. Sad, as despite it’s myriad flaws we kinda liked to odd little bugger. Just don’t expect anymore Motorola Sidekicks. We think Danger is going to stick with Sharp, a proven manufacturer for their Sidekick line for a pretty long while.
