T-Mobile and Samsung have teamed up to revive the Sidekick line of social-networking devices. The Sidekick made waves in the early days of the mobile phone revolution, offering streamlined access to all of your favorite instant messenger services and text messaging options right in your pocket, allowing you to stay connected with your social life on the move.
This time around, the Sidekick 4G is made by Samsung and is bringing Android along for the ride. Let’s take a closer look at the Sidekick 4G and hopefully make the decision-making process a bit easier for you as you look at this device as a potential purchase.
In The Box
The Sidekick comes out of the box with everything you need to be getting along with and in contrast to devices like the Atrix 4G, accessories for the Sidekick are pretty much limited to carrying cases and screen protectors.
Inside the box you will find the Sidekick, an AC wall charger, a USB data transfer cable and a 2GB microSD card with standard-sized SD adapter. Also included is the obligatory Starter Guide; nobody actually knows the contents of the guide because they have never been read before. The box itself is actually designed in a similar way to that of the Sidekick itself, tying the Sidekick experience together nicely.
