A new device will join T-Mobile’s sidekick portfolio and will come with absolutely original design features, something you don’t see every day. T-Mobile is the fourth largest US mobile phone carriers. The device comes unexpected as just not long ago other devices in the same series have been unveiled. The Sidekick LX, Sidekick Slide and the successful T-Mobile Tony Hawk will have to make some room in the portfolio for the new Sidekick.
What is definitely interesting about this new device is the fact that you can fully customize its design. Don’t exaggerate by thinking you can make it look like a ping-pong ball but its ‘Shells’ can be customized by preference. T-Mobile Sidekick allows users to absolutely customize its look.
The new device has its own Sidekick Shells website. This means that on that website more that 100 models are ready to be purchased for about $15. This enables users to choose from a great variety of designs and to pick one up that completely suits his preferences. There are eight categories of shells including fashion, sports and politics. Actually there is a Barack Obama themed Shell. To be completely customizable, users can create their own designs which any color and pattern they like.
The new T-Mobile Sidekick is already available for purchase. For a two-year contract agreement, people can get the device for about $150. This not a big price considering its features and what can do for its users.
The Sidekick comes with a 2.6 inch display with 400 x 240 pixels camera, the device has also quad-band GSM (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz) with GPRS and EDGE. Writing emails and using its Instant Messaging service will be made easy thanks to its full QWERTY keyboard.
The handset comes with Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, music and video players, a 512 memory card and a 2 megapixel camera with video recording, myFaves, Quickfind. The device weights about 147 grams, which is pretty heavy and it measures 111 x 58 x 17.8 mm.
As said before, its price is about $150 with a two-year contract agreement with T-Mobile and the custom Shells cost about $15 per piece. The Sidekick is out and available for purchase.
