Happy Birthday to our dear little friend. That’s right, 7 years ago on October 1st, 2002 the Hiptop was released to the general public in the US. Seven years later and here we are. In some ways the Sidekick has been improved greatly (remember the terrible camera back then when cellphones didn’t have cameras?), and in other ways it’s stayed the same. For better or worse, the Sidekick will always have a place in our hearts.
