T-Mobiles a popular firm in Mobile industry has officially the next iteration of T-Mobile’s popular messaging device — the Sidekick 4G. The mobile is featured by Android 2.2 Froyo operating system. The Sidekick 4G has the familiar rectangular shape with a “pop-tilt” hinge that flips the phone’s screen up and out to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. When the keyboard is open, the magenta paint job of the screen’s back and sturdy hinge is hard to ignore. The same goes for the all-white color of the handset’s backside, which contrasts with the front’s jet-black shade. Those who want to keep things more conservative can opt for the matte black finish.
Users can also program the phone’s LED light to blink in red, blue, or purple for specific notifications such as missed calls and new messages.
