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.

    Niiice! tmobile and danger dont drop the ball by forcing us on the higher data plans if we update phones!

  7. Joekido Says:

    Sweet, hopefully we get a close-up on the keyboards

  8. Spencer Says:

    Its nice but they better not make it out of the plastic like the 2008! It better be quality like the sidekick LX or better!!

  9. ReBeLR Says:

    That’s exactly why I hate buying new phones. As soon as you get it they bring out something else ******* new! UGH! But it looks tight! lol

  10. Antonio Says:

    I wonder how many people jumped to the G1 that are gonna find themselves back on the kick.

    The new device looks awesome!! The white part kind of reminds me of an ipod, idk why. I really hope they decide to keep the same keyboard as the LX. But either ways im getting it and im gonna love it. Even if the keyboard is smaller than the LX

    they prolly will, simply because its 3g enabled…..just like what happened with the data plans on the ipone when the 3g came out

  17. daniel Says:

    Is it just me or is the screen risen from the device, similar the the sidekick 1?

  18. Jube Says:

    Man that tx return is going straight on that

  19. Setnakt Says:

    The LX was not made of “cheap ‘***'(?)”, Moe. Thanks. And I’m not commenting on the rates again becides I find it strange how only I can dial 611 and ask about it. Weird. And I find it humorious that anyone can even compair T-Mobile to the bottomfeeders at AT&T (AllTreason&Terrorism), their not even in the same league, but WHATEVER….

  21. Alex the PI Says:

    damn that needs to come out SOON

  22. Nizzle Says:

    I don’t know. I know everyone on here think it looks hot, but honestly it looks just like the others except now the screen looks to stick out a little more, like the old Sidekick Color.

    It just looks the same aesthetically as the previous models. I don’t think this is the change that T-Mobile needs in the Sidekick department. Other than the Sidekick faithful (which are dropping left and right for newer phones) I don’t see this being a huge seller.

    The data plans are on par with the G1 and the Blackberry. Other than a few stupid parents who will pay for that for their parents (I’m sorry, no under 17 year old needs a 35 dollar data plan on a phone no matter how much they may think so) I don’t see this as a seller.

    Those that are going to spend that kind of cash are more than likely going to go to a more business-like/capable phone (G1, iPhone, Blackberry, Wing 2, etc…).

    With all that said, I want the Sidekick to succeed. I just think they need to sit down, stop cranking out new iterations of the same old stuff with a couple added programs and figure out what market they want to hit and achieve it. One with better, more focused devices and two with a more reasonable data plan.

    What the *** are you talking about the LX has been out for 2 years and 08 has been out for a year, you just now getting it? That’s YOUR fault.

  24. atlantiz Says:

    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

  25. FEZ Says:

    this phone is beastt lmao.

  26. meme Says:

    does anyone know how the speaker is going to be? MY sk lx speaker is really quiet and it definitely is not as loud as every other phone out in the market.

  27. Tom J Says:

    Is it slide or swivel?

  28. Antonio Says:

    From what I can tell swivle, there is a small thumb lift to the bottom left part of the screen when the device is closed, and when open the little thumb lift is to the top right of the screen, so I would say its swivles. (That’s if these mock ups hold true to the device)

  29. Ramabama Says:

    Only reason i am sticking to the sidekick is because i still have the 19.99 data plan. if the g1 had the same data plan i would have left when it came out.

  30. Cheif Dan K Says:

    ill never leave sk life i love mine and this new one just puts a bright light for me to look forward to so i can **** on all the g1 and crack berrys hahah fucka crack berry sk for life holla!

  31. Cheif Dan K Says:

    der der its a sidekick why would they cange how it swivels then it wouldnt be a sidekick 09/blade it would be another slide or something ***

  32. KoloheBoy Says:

    whoowhoo hell yeah looks good..

  33. john nissan Says:

    The phone sounds great. It seems to be right there with the G1 and iphone. My two concerns are 1. How the brower will look and run. And 2. Will they ever get applications worth a damn. Cus that’s where the iphone kills other phones….

    I def agree with what you’re saying.I hate how T-mobile caters to little kids who want the shittiest things on sidekicks, (I.E youtube,twitter,myspace,facebook,touchscreen.)but **** it business is business I would put ****** features too if thats what the Sk fans want and are willing to pay for.I just can’t see sidekicks being anywhere close to top sellers anymore I personally am no longer faithful to the Sk fam since these phones upgrade to a decent feature every what like 3 years?Naw that ***** not my style…. by the time sidekicks get touchscreen or @ least a flash player there’s going to be phones out there that are holograms or something….. I just find it funny how some sidekick users think with this new phone coming out they’re going to be considered high end phone users along with the iPhone and G1 users like really……… you think your mobile youtube will be hated on by anyone out there “Cheif Dan K” ?You’re also a slow one john nissan to think this phone is up there with the iPhone or G1 this phone is still down there with the Nokia Ngage and AT&T Firefly….. Sk’s are for kids…. make Sk’s for men…… WTF!!!!

  35. Antonio Says:

    The only thing that’s child like about a sidekick is how user friendly the UI is. Go check the link for Danger 101 on poweredbydager.com to understand a little on how the device works, and tell me if there is anything child like about it.
    No major upgrades in the past 3 years? Yes I agree with you, but, you also need to understand that the sidekicks strengths are also its weeknesses. The back end server has to be upgraded before any major handset upgrade in order for the device to work properly. Have you ever wondered why sk1,2,and 3 had the same screen resolution? Its called compressed files by the backevd server sent to your device.
    Danger has been in debt since ’05. Im shocked they made it to 08. Now that danger is out of debt, and Microsoft restructured the contract with tmobile, I don’t think you can call the sklx09 a kids phone

  36. Dannyb707 Says:

    OMFG THIS PHONE LOOKS SO AWSOME!!!!!! I HOPE ITS SWIVEL SCREEN NOT SLIDE!!!!!! I HAVE AN IPHONE 3g NOW I WENT FRM A SK3 TO THE IPHONE 2g THN TO THE IPHONE 3g BUT I ALREADY TOLD MY BRO HE CAN HAVE MY IPHONE WEN I GET THIS NEW SIDEKICK CUZ THE DAY IT COMES OUT IM DEFINATLY GNA GO TO TMOBILE N GET IT!!!!! I HOPE IT DOES HAVE YOUTUBE THOUGH CUZ THTS THE ONLY REASON I GOT AN IPHONE BUT IF THIS NEW SIDEKICK HAS YOUTUBE IM DEFINATLY SWITCHN TO TMOBILE!!!! N HOPEFULLY ITLL LET U USE THE WHOLE SCREEN TO WATCH YOUTUBE VIDEOS CUZ NOT BEING ABLE TO USE THE WHOLE SCREEN TO WATCH VIDEOS MIGHT BE A DEAL BREAKER 4 ME SO FINGERS CROSSED THT IT DSE!!!!!!!!

  37. Setnakt Says:

    Many/most of the SK applications aren’t that great but nether are the iPhone’s. I’m shocked at how many (probably most) are frivlious **** designed for ether/or air heads looking for fluff (like the Lightsaber app/screensaver/whatever), or crutches for morons who need directions to find/do/go anywhere. I don’t know how the latter group maniages to wipe their arses without an “app”!

  38. bryans Says:

  39. Setnakt Says:

    Those are the new rates, you can only have/keep the old rate of $19.99 if you had it before the rates went up and didn’t flip to another phone/provider.

  40. stephy Says:

    aww that sucksssssssss
    $35!
    i hope they change that.
    also for the new sidekick i really hope it doesnt feel like super cheap and plastic like the ’08 does.
    the lx feels alot better and sturdier.
    also if it has youtubee i will start screaming like an insane kitty, because seriously this is a neww sidekick it has to at least try to compete with everyone else by putting youtube or else its just some crappy overpriced phone.

  41. bunny22 Says:

    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.

  42. Setnakt Says:

    I also like Bunny use my phone while charging a lot, email, texting, all that. But I don’t see how the USB port’s new location would be a problem. The cord would just be going through my right hand, take a minute to get use to but not actually blocking usage. The charging port on the SK II on the bottom right side made that one basicly impossiable to use while charging. I screwed up the port on several phones because of that poor choice in design. But best solution is to finally give us, a BETTER BATTERY! At LEAST the option to buy an alternate better long life battery! I mean come on, what’s up with that?? Most data phones offer such an option. And T-Mo/Danger would make more $, and the damand is there, so I don’t understand them not wanting more $! Makes no sence.

  43. Trian Says:

    Just chipped in to say that next time guys please make sure you site logo is more prominent on an image. It was such an eye-sore trying to discern the actual pic below it, that I bothered to come here and write this to you.
    Thanks

  44. Moe Says:

    At bryans

    No the sidekick data plan has been priced up to 24.99 or 34.99,only people who can take advantage are grandfathered customers who have not changed their plan,once they do and try to switch back they won’t be able to keep the 19.99 data plan

    And I gurantee you that the new sidekick will only have the higher price plan,so every one switching will have to pay more,plus buy game ringtones etc

    so does anyone have any estimates if what month it might come out

  47. orion Says:

    Soo it looks to me like the trackball is made outta titanium or something. Kinda like the marble thing in the mousetrap game? Lol that’d be nice. So is that why there are lights on the top?! To alert you when the device is sleeping? Will it blink blue on the top now????!?

    Haha I want one.

    [Setnakt says]: I disagree with that no offience. I had the 1 and 2, skipped the 3 (no real update there IMO), got the LX now. I believe the LX has the best keyboard so far. The 3 I did try, keys were too hard to press for rapid typing, I could type fastest on the 2 but the cheep rubber keys literaly fell appart over long use (at least I could super glue them back~pain in the *** but worked), the 1 keyboard sucked because the letters/numbers/symbols wore off and there was no way to prevent that. I even tried over-coating them in clear paint and no dice, still wore through because of heavy use. I guess the 1 keyboard was ok….if you seldom used it, lol!

  50. Tico Says:

    Ok for the people sayin that sidekick took too long to enter the next generation of phones, it was cause it was only powerd by danger. Now that its microsoft makin the chages and the advancements I dont think sidekicks will be technologicaly behind.
    Microsoft will prevail and so will sidekick

    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.

    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!

  56. The Kid Flames Says:

    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 ½ 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

  59. Setnakt Says:

    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

  63. 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.

  65. 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??

  66. 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.

  69. 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.

  70. 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

  74. 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.

  75. 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.

    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.
