    Texting dangers real, not funny

    Because looking both ways before crossing the street is harder than following laws, Illinois has introduced a bill that would ban texting in intersections. Ken Dunkin, the representative who introduced the bill, says texting in the street is no laughing matter: “This legislation is not laughable. On the surface it’s like, ‘Oh wow, what is this?’ But it’s becoming more… Read More

  • Sidekick Gecco will actually be named Sidekick 2008?

    Sidekick Gecco will actually be named Sidekick 2008?

    Word on the street is, and by street I mean Cellphone Signal, that the Sidekick Gekko/Gecco has been officially dubbed the Sidekick 2008. Hiptop3 points out that this should be a red flag considering it’s July of 2008. If you’re familiar with Sidekicks then you know that the back of the swivel screen clearly states what model it is and according to the last thumbnail it just says… Read More

  • Sidekick LX OTA rolling out June 25

    Sidekick LX OTA rolling out June 25

    I’ve been a fan of the Sidekick for years now and, like everyone else, I was disappointed when the latest devices (LX and Slide) from T-Mobile were sans video recording capability. It was basically a slap in the face if you ask me. Who releases four new devices in the span of a year without video recording on any of them? Hello! It’s 2008 not 1998. In any case, Sidekick LX owners will… Read More

  • Rumor: Tony Hawk T-Mobile Sidekick LX being announced tomorrow? [Update]

    Rumor: Tony Hawk T-Mobile Sidekick LX being announced tomorrow? [Update]

    It is according to the BGR, but it won’t be available until mid-July. The Birdman’s limited edition Sidekick will supposedly have a “skateboard look and feel with a grip-tape-texture and his well known hawk graphic.” Stoked for the signature Hawk graphic since it’s something I mentioned that I’d like to see on this limited edition SK from T-Mobile.

  • Scorpion logging machine will eventually kill us all

    What a pleasant, soothing video of a graceful, six-legged stinger-tailed killing machine used for “logging,” whatever that is. All that needs to be done now is to equip these things with front-mounted lasers and let them loose in a big city. In a non-paranoid world, this machine is a logging prototype made by John Deere in cooperation with Plustech Oy. It’s not new, either, as… Read More

    Screenshot of T-Mobile's Sidekick Gecko browser [Update]

    Sort of a disappointment, but at least we know it’s out there. Doesn’t look much different than what’s on the LX right now. More Gecko details here. Totally fake! Read More

  • Sidekick LX getting A2DP

    Sidekick LX getting A2DP

    I’m beginning to wonder whether or not I really want to switch back to the Sidekick after spending the last few months with the Curve. I can’t handle these tiny upgrades that should have been there to begin with. Nevertheless, Sidekick LX owners will be getting A2DP during the next OTA says Hiptop3. Read More

  • T-Mobile Sidekick Gekko revealed

    T-Mobile Sidekick Gekko revealed

    Well, here it is, folks, the Sidekick Gekko/Aspen. It’s still unclear which name T-Mobile will be going with, but it’s clear that they’re the same device. From the looks of it it’s pretty obvious that the Gekko takes design cues from the iD and you may be able to customize the bumpers. Hiptop3 also has word that the screen on the Gekko will be the same Sharp AQUOS LCD that… Read More

  • Rumor: Tony Hawk Limited Edition Sidekick LX coming mid-July

    Rumor: Tony Hawk Limited Edition Sidekick LX coming mid-July

    Today is chock full of Sidekick rumors and this one seems a bit more plausible than the prior one. Hiptop3 is claiming that the Birdman is getting his own Limited Edition LX on July 16th, which is two days before the start of Tony Hawk’s Boom Boom Huckjam presented by T-Mobile Sidekick. There are no other details at the moment so we’ll take this with a grain of salt as well, though… Read More
