T-Mobile Sidekick

A number of websites are reporting first-hand that the T-Mobile Sidekick will rebirth with Android. The Sidekick itself is a brand-name owned by T-Mobile but the device everyone is familiar with stopped selling on the 2nd July. But unlike what you would expect from the death of a popular brand, T-Mobile remained fairly upbeat. “Stay tuned for exciting updates in the months ahead, which we expect will provide customers with a new and fresh experience,” T-Mobile said in a recent statement.

Tmonews and mocoNews are both reporting that T-Mobile insiders say that they’ve been working on an Android device for some time. Could it be that the Sidekick is set for a rebirth with Android, perhaps even Gingerbread sometime early next year? After all, it was the first carrier in the world to launch an Android phone.
