T-Mobile Cutting Off Sidekicks

Posted Jul 2, 2010

Starting today T-Mobile is discontinuing sales of the Sidekick. This means that the Sidekick LX 2009 will not be available for purchase going forward. Sidekicks were developed by Danger Inc., which ended up being acquired by Microsoft. This is the second line of phones associated with Microsoft that has been ceased this week, the first being the Kin. Sidekick fans should not be discouraged because T-Mobile said that they are working “on the next chapter of [its] storied Sidekick franchise.” T-Mobile owns the Sidekick brand. Rumor has it that they plan to use Android for the next line of Sidekicks. [Engadget]
