Microsoft to release “follow-up to Sidekick”

The Wall Street Journal and other sources are saying that Microsoft may not be revealing it’s new Pink phone in Barcelona as previously rumored, just the new Windows Mobile OS. However they are saying the rumored Pink phones will be a follow-up to the T-Mobile Sidekick, it will be manufactured by Sharp, and will be heavy on the social networking side. Carriers rumored to carry it? Verizon and Vodafone are said to be carrying it internationally. One has to wonder where T-Mobile is in all of this. Will Sidekick users have to switch carriers to continue with the latest and greatest Sidekick-like device?

    i love sidekicks, had them for 5+ years… still do.. but have we noticed that t-mo has been putting the mytouch in the spotlight lately? more than any other phone too. With the Fender Mytouch, orig mytouch… or the new mytouch with 3.5mm jack… and the rumored mytouch slide..

    has the sidekick line been replaced by something that is nothing a like?

    I think it has. Microsoft buying danger has had its up’s and downs… unfortunatly more downs.. The LX09 is the best one made by far… but i belive that this is the end… and that mytouch’s will be replacing the danger devices…

    After almost 10 years, this is very sad.

    Amen my brother!!!! Amen!!! The sidekick is the worst phone that T-Mobile sells. Hopefully the sidekick will be MIA in a couple of years.
