T-Mobile's Sidekick is one of the most popular, celebrated feature phones out there. Its unique design and awesome keyboard make it just about perfect for fast, on-the-fly messaging. Even in this age of smartphones, the Sidekick has managed to hold onto a comfortable little niche for itself. Sadly, if BGR is correct, the Sidekick may not be long for this world.
This has yet to be confirmed, but the launch of the (also unconfirmed) T-Mobile myTouch Slide is supposed to signal the beginning of the end for Sidekick sales. After the Slide launches, T-Mo will begin phasing out sales of new models. Again, this has not yet been corroborated but it certainly has the ring of truth about it. We all knew this day was inevitable.
