If you’ve watched any of the NBA playoffs (or any TV in general) recently, you’ve probably seen an ad or six for one of T-Mobile’s hottest new phones, the Sidekick 4G. The Sidekick 4G is the latest and greatest in the Sidekick line, and the first to pack new features like Android, a 3.5 inch touchscreen, 4G and a 1 GHZ processor– all while still keeping that flip-out full QWERTY keyboard Sidekick users know and love.

While this all sounds great, you probably wondering how does this latest Sidekick 4G hold up in real life? Well, we’ve taken it for a spin the past few weeks and we’ve got everything you need to know after the break in our full teen review. Read the rest of this entry

Remember those rumored pricing and release dates for two of T-Mobile’s hottest upcoming phones, the LG G2X and Samsung Sidekick 4G? Well, we just heard from T-Mobile and guess what, it’s now official. Starting in twelve days, April 20th, both of these sick new phones will be available at your local T-Mobile store for $99.99 on a new 2 year contract and $30 a month unlimited data plan for the Sidekick 4G (or $149.99 with new 2 year contract  and T-Mobile’s much more affordable $10 250 MB plan. This plan is great for light email, updating your Facebook or some quick browsing of the web but not a lot of video watching over 4G. If you do plan on watching a lot of video, web browsing or constantly checking Facebook over 4G we’d recommend the unlimited plan) or $199.99 with a new 2 year contract and unlimited data plan for the LG G2X.

We checked out both of these beasts down at CTIA last month and we were very impressed with both. We found both to be extremely fast and we really loved the large screen on the G2X and the awesome keyboard on the Sidekick 4G. For all the details and our full first impressions on these bad boys see our first looks here (G2X, Sidekick 4G).

So T-Mobile users, if you’re looking for a new phone what’s it gonna be: Sidekick 4G, G2X or some other powerful 4G phone like the Galaxy S 4G or myTouch 4G?
