Sidekick 4G retired but Sidekick line will live on

T-Mobile USA has confirmed with PhoneScoop that the Samsung-designed Sidekick 4G has been retired.  This doesn’t definitively mean that the brand has been given the axe though as  T-Mobile was quick to clear the air.

…Sidekick 4G…retired (but)…it doesn’t mean we are discontinuing the T-Mobile Sidekick line.”

It will be interesting to see if or when the Sidekick returns now that we’ve become so enamored in touch-only devices.   Will it ever find its way back to the top of the heap where it was once considered a killer handset experience?
