Another Sidekick 2009 Picture

Sidekick 2009

We’ve got another mock-up of the Sidekick 2009 sent in by a reader (who even watermarked for us!). If anyone thinks this thing isn’t confirmed by now, they aren’t paying attention. Now we’re just waiting for a photo of it in the wild.

    I agree. Danger was not even making aprofit on thwir product even with the high prices the charged for their devices. Microsoft has a lot more capital, so they should be able to put more money into a better product as well as keeping the price down.

    If the phone and USB ports are going to be below, well to me that kinda cramps my texting style.

    I have always needed to send a text or something while charging my phone and I know this is gonna be a problem.

    But thats bad for u cus putting tooo much on an electronic while ur usign the electronic and charging at the same time could casue harm to u or the electronic

    ok so this phone looks nice and im def gonna be copping one…but for some reason this mock up don’t look much like the other ones…aside that this one is more animated than the others, it looks like in this version the material will be that plastic **** but the other ones show more of a metallic material…aside from that im glad danger and microsoft joined cause now they can provide more higher quality sidekicks….excitement begins now!

    Okay — I love my LX — been using the SK since I abandoned the Blackberry the 3. I’m a 29 year-old business owner and it does everything I need it to. I can sync my Gmail up (to which all others forward to), use it for task management, alarm, it’s second to none where messaging is concerned and is a great overall phone. I text a ton, so it’s raised keys are perfect. I can almost type on it accurately without even looking at the thing. I have yet to jump ship for the G1 because I love it so much.

    The Blade looks sleeker and even better than the LX — but here are my quips:

    * Why isn’t this the SIDEKICK TOUCH??!?! All they’re doing is recycling the body and making the camera a tad better at 2.3mp (when there are phones that now have 5-8 megapixel cams). This should’ve been the SK Touch — not what I was expecting at all.
    * The browsing experience has to be better. I’m a graphic designer, in front of my Mac most of the day — so I don’t use the browser features a ton, but I use them enough when I’m out of the office. The inclusion of GPS is a plus, though!
    * The OS is antiquated — they need to update it significantly.
    * Hopefully the speaker has the capacity to be louder.

    Not much complaining — the SK is a messaging phone and always will be! The capacity for multimedia is there (did you know if you have a male/male aux cable, you can plug your SK into your car and, not only play MP3s off of it, but also talk through your stereo? dope…)

    I haven’t jumped to the G1 because I hate the flush, lowered keypad — I can’t feel the keys (as great a phone as it is) — and though I’m an everything Mac type dude, I won’t head over to the iPhone because AT&T’s plans and service are both MAD suspect. I’ve been with T-Mo since they were Voicestream and have NEVER had an issue, on, with service. I had some bugs on my SK3, but got them taken care of easily through Customer Care.

    The Blade looks dope and I’ll ride my LX until it drops in a few months. I just wish they’d hurry so I can get my hands on it and test it out before I upgrade.

    [Setnakt says]
    This is inaccurate in both regards. All Sidekicks are well insulated, I’ve never heard of anyone ever getting any “harm” (shock I’m assumeing) from using one while charging. And they are specificly designed to be usable while charging~ALL SIDEKICKS! If they were not I would not be a SK user, mine is on the charger IN use almost all the time I’m home since I only get maybe 7 hours use on a charge. 7+4 (charge time)= 11, last I checked there isn’t an 11 hour day or a way to schedule use and charging around cycles of 11 into 24 hours (24 doesn’t divide by 11). So untell there is a FREEKING BETTER BATTERY(!!!) mine at least will HAVE to be used on the charger and usually over the time! I don’t even go see a friend or go to work without bringing my charger otherwise I KNOW I’ll have a dead phone.

    well my bad im jus saying

    Think of the SK (all of them) like a mini-laptop and you got the idea. Runs and works as well and safely while on charger or not. It’s designed to stop charging at the correct time automaticly, no over-charge, no worries, and safe to both user and device. Also (as a side note) Sidekicks make the LOWEST EM (microwave radiation) of any cell phone made. That is except the Slide. All other Danger and Sharp models are hardly registrable. Of course Motorala phones make the MOST EM. Good thing no more Motorala SK’s

  13. justin Says:

    This phone looks hot!! I wonder if the screens bigger than the Lx. It sucks that you need a twitter aplication for youtube, etc. , but its looks really nice, Its thin and i hope the video is better than the Lx and 08 . It would be cool if it came in different colors like silver , black , and blue. I hope its built like the Lx , because than it would look like a very top of the notch fone.

    all i kno is Tmobile said nothing.

  15. me Says:

    A touchscreen sidekick with all of the features mentioned it is supposed to have and a larger screen would be wayy better than a g1. ..imo. A touch screen would allow users to use their sk w.o swiveling the screen which would be pretty cool. Also, sk’s data plan is cheaper. I have the sk prepaid plan. Do u think it would cost more to use youtube and gps wen it is added to the new sk??

  16. Pedro Says:

    This is ugly as sin, if that’s what the final product will look like, I think I’ll stick to my lx.

  17. Felix Says:

    I cant wait till it comes out in April!

  18. me Says:

    Hey felix, how do you know it comes out in april?

  19. SK2_Tank Says:

    Anyone know if they’re returning to the Rubber Edges (like in the SK 2) ??

    Slow as the SK2 is, it never falls from grasp because the rubber edging makes it so GRIPPY … the rare times it slips your grip, it just bounces on that rubber – thing is built like a tank anyways.
    Contrast that to the SK3, which is a shatter-queen.

  20. Connie Says:

    i totallyyy agreee nizzle.

    nothing reallyy wows me about the new sidekick..
    like oh finally 3G whatever
    GPS>? i have a great gps system i dont need that
    i rather have things lik the G1 has with all the free
    applications and being able to put mp3s as a ringtone
    and all that fun stuff. idk it looks rly nice and the new
    resolution seems rly cool but idk i guess well have to
    see when it finalllyy comes out haha

    wen d0es this c0me 0ut ?

  22. Mike M. Says:

    wtf haha i sure hope the screen isn’t really risen that high popping out of the device and such, seems to me like that could cause problems like the sidekick opening in your pocket maybe.

  24. ALEX Says:

    SK were cool but its time to move on to better stuff. Check out engagdget.com and read about the Toshiba TGO1, HTC Diamond II and the HTC Pro 2 if you want a serious touch screen phones with all the bells and whistles. The teeny-boppers will eat this up when it drops. Does look better, even more so than my LX I had. I hope this can be upgraded to WinMo 6.5, that would be huge for a SK running this.

  25. Setnakt Says:

    ALEX, I tried all 3 of those in the engagdget.com search and got a bunch of results for sites and stores that sell electronics (and also for pizzahut.com weirdly), but NOTHING on those devices. Do you have a direct link to data on these devices, or just the site link which appears to not acknowledge they exist?!

    its one of those features that is nice to have besides im pretty sure android needs a touchscreen and really flipping open a sk just to type an “ok” or “alright” is useless an onscreen keyboard would make that much easier

    I totally agree with you nizzle.

    The only reason I’m still with the SK is for the keyboard, the speedy interface, and the back end that saves everything. (Iphone has mobile me back end for an extra fee)

    I tried the G1 for the 2 week trial but I only got 4 hours of battery life with the GPS off!

    This new SK looks like it is on the same platform as the 2008, and the screen protruding out is a BIG design flaw.

    The SK is basically for teenyboppers and wanna be ghetto gangsters.
    Who cares about twitter and myspace!

    I will be waiting for G2

    BYe SK

    lantiz man dude ur a lame. SK is 4 folks n da know. All them other fones is SK followers, u knw SK was probly the 1st wit the big screen, querty key board data planns…etc. Everyboby else came out 2 shut SK down…so buzz of go play wit ur lil i(beatoff)phone and get a life. If teenie bobbers is the only SK market y r u here…duh

    I am in Australia, and still using the Pearl White Flip Screen HipTop2 from 2007 and paying $30 a mth. Which covers anything I want datawise, I just pay extra for phone calls. I am never going to re-contract cause the unlimited data is more important to me than a fancy new phone. This one does most things I need it to do, but the web browser could use some better java capabilities. The rubber keyboard is still in as new condition and I have used it heaps writing poems and emailing them to myself at home for backups. My idea for a new hiptop/sidekick would be something like a chrome ciggarette container that splits in half to open the led backlit lcd screen with 800×600 rez and full shockwave abilities. The bottom half is the keyboard. It would look sweet and be accident resistant too. Plastic is so 2007. 2010 is the year of Chrome. Demand Chrome for your next phone. Also because the screen is so thin, you could make the phone battery flatter and wider to sit behind the lcd and another one under the keyboard, making battery life under load at least 12 hrs. Even on this old hiptop I can do 12hrs on Patient Protection on it all night and it just starts bleeping at me after I get home. I don’t bring my chatger with me. And it’s nearly 3 years old now, and on since I got it, except for the occasional restart lol.
