Two new Sidekicks coming to T-Mobile this summer?

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 5:59PM EST

TmoNews is claiming to have the scoop on not one, but two new Sidekick devices. The first, codenamed the SK Gekko, is scheduled to launch on the 27th of July, while the second, codenamed the “Sidekick Aspen”, is currently slated for a July 30th launch. We’re not betting one of these will be the red Sidekick Slide we told you about a little while ago, so yeah. While we wouldn’t put it past T-Mo and Danger Microsoft Danger to launch a 3G-capable Sidekick, it seems unlikely given the recent LX and Slide releases. That said, we’ll continue to dig up more info on these as it becomes available.
