So T-Mobile is bringing back its Sidekick line…you remember the sidekick. It was, for most of us, our first phone with “real internet”. (I think the browser on the Sidekick is actually better than the BlackBerry…) T-mobile is looking to strengthen the Sidekick line by having it on Android (and made by Samsung) instead of the propietry Danger OS (which is now owned by Microsoft).
I have a few questions:
1. Will people feel comfortable buying a Sidekick after what happened in 2009? If you don’t remember its when the Sidekick servers crashing causing people with Sidekicks to lose all their data and making their phones very cool looking paper weights.
2. Who is the Sidekick going to be marketed towards? T-Mobile’s consumer brand is the MyTouch. The G series (G1, G2, G-slate) is the higher end series.
3. Would YOU buy a Sidekick? (Why or why not)
