The bad news is T-Mobile’s Sidekick 4G has been discontinued. The good news, if you’re a fan of QWERTY, is that the Sidekick line is still alive, but in what capacity remains to be seen. T-Mobile made a statement to TheVerge saying there are no immediate plans to nix the beloved Sidekick brand despite the T-Mobile device recently getting the axe.
While the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G is being retired, it doesn’t mean we are discontinuing the T-Mobile Sidekick line. T-Mobile continues to update and expand its 4G product portfolio and we’ll keep you posted when we have news to share on T-Mobile’s latest 4G devices.
We reported earlier this week that the Sidekick 4G was indeed falling by the wayside, but it sounds like there may be an iteration down the line. While T-Mobile’s comments don’t reveal when we’ll see the Sidekick return, hopefully T-Mobile has plans to introduce something soon.
