T-Mobile Danger Sidekick

The Sidekick is supposed to be the spiritual brother to the Sidekick iD. The reason for that is because the Sidekick has interchangeable "shells" and custom made that you can make yourself online. It is shipping with all of the Sidekick LX updates and with a 2-year contract is a relatively cheap $150.Design (and more ;)The Sidekick closely resembles the LX except it is smaller and lighter. Its comfortable in the hand and has a durable feeling; whether its true we have to find out ;). To pick new or create your own shells go tosidekickshells.comThe new Sidekick has a 2.6-inch WQVGA which is slightly smaller than the LX. But it still has the same resolution. The Sidekick doesn't have a touch screen but it still has the same traditional: jump, done, cancel, menu, talk/end keys, trackball navigator, and shoulder buttons (and a power button). There is a mini USB port to connect the Sidekick to the computer to upload/download pictures, songs, and videos. I personally would like (I don't know if they allow it) but for the Sidekick to be used a modem. The Sidekick only has 64mb of internal storage and 128mb of RAM. The Sidekick comes with a 512mb microSD card and supports up a 8gb microSD. The music playback lacks bass so they provide a 3.5mm headphone jack. The top number buttons will be a little hard to use for adults because they are a little close to the screen. The Sidekick's screen swivels to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. There is an onscreen number pad (you use the trackball).
