T-Mobile Sidekick 4G video
T-Mobile really wants you to know the Sidekick 4G is coming. In a new video, product manager Joe Fernandez shows off the phone's sliding mechanism and Android interface. We've captured some images from T-Mobile's video for your viewing pleasure below.
The new Sidekick interface is definitely based on Android 2.2 and Samsung's TouchWiz, although it has some unique Sidekick touches, like those links on the right-hand side of the screen. Samsung's "Feeds and Updates" social-networking widget appears in the video, though.
The screen slides up with a click to reveal the 5-row QWERTY keyboard. The black version of the phone is made of a matte, soft-touch material, Fernandez said.
Also, according to Phone Scoop, the new Sidekick will offer a mobile hotspot and tethering mode.
The Sidekick 4G is supposedly coming out "this spring," but we're sure to learn a lot more about it at the CTIA Wireless trade show next week.
