Sidekick Slide – Why is it called a “Sidekick”

T-Mobile officially announced the Sidekick Slide, now I don’t know exactly why the Sidekick was originally called the Sidekick, but I think that it had something to do with the idea of using your thumb to flip the screen up to reveal the keyboard. Sidekick is a horrible name for the Slide, but I guess I can let them get away with it.

The Sidekick Slide will be available on October 24th for $199.99 with a two year contract. The screen is much brighter then the previous Sidekick and it features a 1.3MP camera.

T-Mobile has also announced the Sidekick LX which is slightly thicker then the slide, features media playback and has a longer battery life then the Slide.

I’ve never been a big fan of the Sidekick because it has always been too big for my taste, and even though these Sidekick’s are the best yet, I’ll still stick with my iPhone.

  1. I always thought they called it Sidekick because it was your digital sidekick, like a Superhero has a sidekick.
