    Photobucket teams up with T-Mobile and Danger to create mobile apps

    Understatement of the day: Apps are in. Having already released an iPhone app, it should come as no surprise that Photobucket has teamed up with T-Mobile and Danger to create mobile Photobucket apps for select T-Mo handsets and Danger’s Sidekick. Read More

  • Rumor: T-Mobile working with Danger on 3G Sidekick?!

    Rumor: T-Mobile working with Danger on 3G Sidekick?!

    Ahhh, the rumormill.¬† Nothing like the smell of freshly minted bs theories and speculation. The latest “hot tip” comes in the form of a supposed Sidekick refresh a la 3G flavor. If T-Mobile is serious about keeping this fading classic around amongst the likes of the G1 and other recent releases, 3G is an absolute must at this point. What will this new high-speed update look like? Read More

  • HTC Dream: Sidekick-like keyboard and trackball?

    HTC Dream: Sidekick-like keyboard and trackball?

    Rumor! Grains of salt and whatnot. Forward-looking statements, etc. Thinking caps on, pencils down and what have you. Gearfuse apparently got a tip from an insider close to the HTC Dream saying that the device “will feature a keyboard and trackball almost identical to the Sidekick.” If this is true, fine by me. The Sidekick’s got a nice keyboard. I’m not… Read More

    [Updated] Soulja Boy gets a sort of special Xbox 360 themed Sidekick LX

    YOUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! Besides being a master lyricist with such classic lines as “Gurl B Double O-T-Y-M-E A T You Know It Dats Dat Bootymeat”, Soulja Boy also happens to be a cell phone aficionado and a super amazing gamer. Knowing this, Danger apparently sent him an otherwise unreleased Xbox 360 themed Sidekick LX, which he in turn filmed and put online. Update: And by that, of course… Read More

  • Video of HTC Dream running Android?

    Here’s an apparent video of the HTC Dream running Google’s Android operating system. The video looks to have been shot at incredibly high altitude, as even the most basic and delicate hand movements have left the guy working the camera completely out of breath. This looks a little clunky for an HTC device so I don’t want to say that this is definitely definitely definitely… Read More

    Sidekick 2008 goes for $1,000 on eBay just one day before it's $149 in stores

    Between 2 thousand dollar PS3s and 30,000 thousand dollar hoverboard props, eBay is no stranger to things selling for absurd prices. However, most things that have any value on eBay are those that are .. you know, hard to find. Someone probably should have mentioned that to the winner of this Sidekick 2008 auction. Just a day before the new Sidekick was readily available at T-Mobile spots… Read More

    T-Mobile's Sidekick 2008: Yes, it kicks ass and yes you can have ours

    Good morning from CrunchGear. We have the new Sidekick 2008, a svelter, sexier version of everyone’s favorite messaging phone here in the office in a sexy shell from SidekickShells.com. The phone itself is $149 with a two year contract and shells are $14.99 for one and $20 for two. The shells are probably the coolest thing about the new phone, aside from the amazing size and weight.

  • This is what would happen if a PSP and Sidekick got it on

    This is what would happen if a PSP and Sidekick got it on

    A designer by the name of Samuel Lau has created a concept for a new Sony PSP. The idea blends together a Sidekick Slide and a PSP slim. Samuel has made a video of his creation and hopes its gets 50,000+ views. Once it does, he will send a proposal to Sony asking them to pay for half his education if they like the idea (no joke, that’s really his plan). The design itself looks pretty… 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… 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… Read More

    T-Mobile officially announces Sidekick LX Tony Hawk Edition

    It’s official. The Birdman has landed his own Sidekick. I wants it. Gallery after the jump. 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.

    T-Mobile Sidekick Gekko manual leaked

    There isn’t anything new revealed in the manual pages that Hiptop3 managed to get a hold of for the upcoming Gekko aka Aspen Sidekick, but here it is anyway. Photos taken with the 2-megapixel camera can be stored on the device or microSD and videos (.3GP format) can only be stored on external memory. Nothing exciting. Read More

    T-Mobile Sidekick Slide Scarlet now available

    The T-Mobile Sidekick Slide, my last one, has gotten itself a nice little body mod and is now available in scarlet red for $199 from T-Mobile. Hopefully this one doesn’t have that pesky rebooting issue. 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 getting video capability, finally

    T-Mobile Sidekick getting video capability, finally

    Hey Danger/T-Mobile- It’s nice to finally see you bringing video playback and capture capabilities to the Sidekick LX. That only took 6-million years to do, but as the clich√© goes, better late than never. According to Hiptop3, it’s unclear which video format the LX will support. So it could be H.264 or H.263. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be H.263, though. Don’t… Read More

    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… Read More

    Rumor: T-Mobile Sidekick Gekko to replace Sidekick iD


    Flickr’d If TmoNews is to be trusted and something tells me they should be then here’s a bit of info on the Sidekick Gekko I told you about the other day. It will be an entirely new device and not a limited edition LX or Slide like Tony Hawk’s forthcoming model. It will, however, replace the iD with a few major upgrades. Does anyone else feel like the Sidekick gets refreshed… Read More
