T-Mobile Halts Sales of Sidekick Tomorrow

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

It’s been a good run Danger Sidekick, but T-Mobile says you’re done.

“As T-Mobile looks to further innovate and raise the bar for the next generation of the T-Mobile Sidekick, as of July 2, the Sidekick LX and Sidekick 2008 will no longer be available through T-Mobile, including retail stores, care, telesales and online.”

This doesn’t mean that the Sidekick service will be stopped on July 2nd. T-Mobile hasn’t said anything about the longevity of that. This just means you’ll have to buy a Sidekick elsewhere. But there are hints that the Sidekick line may carry on (at least in name). Everyone’s chattering about this Sidekick Twist, which may be what T-Mobile has up their sleeve.

Oh, and for those that haven’t been following the news elsewhere, the Kin is done for as well.
