The Sidekick, she is dead

None more black

Friends, I freaking loved the Sidekick. Seriously. I would have married it. I carried it from about 2004 until 2007, almost all versions. It was literally the best messaging phone I ever used.

Well, all that’s gone, my friends, because as of July, T-Mo is pulling the plug on the device. They write:

As T-Mobile looks to further innovate and raise the bar for the next iteration of the T-Mobile Sidekick, as of July 2, the Sidekick LX and Sidekick 2008 will no longer be available through T-Mobile, including retail stores, care, telesales and online. While we work on the next chapter of our storied Sidekick franchise, T-Mobile will continue to provide our loyal Sidekick customers with product service and support. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the months ahead, which we expect will provide customers with a new and fresh experience.

Goodbye, my friend. Goodbye.
