Microsoft and T-Mobile Looking to Shutdown Danger Servers?

TechFlash is reporting that Microsoft and T-Mobile are planning to announce a transition away from the Danger servers any day now.

It’s no secret that T-Mobile is looking to relaunch the Sidekick device on the Android platform, but what this relaunch means to current Sidekick users has as of yet been unknown. The Danger servers, now owned by Microsoft, cost resources and money to run. Whether or not T-Mobile and Microsoft are making enough money on Sidekick users to warrant continuing to run these servers is unknown. Regardless, once these servers are shutdown, it means the end of our good friend, Danger.

No official word yet, but when we hear it we’ll let you know.

    This is just two sad for words.

    The Sidekick website was offline for couple of hours this past Friday. Wonder what they are up to?

    What about Telstra hiptop users? Nothing has been said to them

    Nothing has been said to anyone. And the replacement new android Sidekick doesn’t even a release date yet. It would make zero sense to can Danger server support for the only existing Sidekick (unless they have some back-up plan/server/alternate supported OS ready to take Danger server’s place), as Sidekick would be essentially dead. Not to mention T-Mobile would be violating their end of their contracts with all Sidekick users (unless they plan to give everyone equivlant FREE smartphones). Not a lot of this rumor makes much sense, business wise that is.

    It’s being shut down May 31, 2011.
