T-Mobile Sidekick 3

 

In a PDA/phone universe dominated by Palm and Windows Mobile devices, the Sidekick (made by a company called Danger, but marketed exclusively by T-Mobile) has always been a maverick with a devoted, if small, following. To its predecessor's repertoire...

One of the best PDA keyboards around Offers stellar messaging features

Bulky shape Phone is difficult to dial

If the versatility that third-party apps afford and a petite shape aren't priorities for you, the Sidekick 3 is a good connected handheld for e-mail, messaging, and Web browsing. Heavy phone users might prefer a device with more straightforward dialing...

Review: T-Mobile Sidekick 3

 

The Sidekick is just a touch slimmer for this release, measuring 5.1- by 2.3- by 0.9-inches and weighing 6.7 oz. The body feels sleeker, although it's still a large phone. You can fit it in a pants pocket, but not comfortably

T-Mobile sells the Sidekick 3 for $299.99 with a two-year extension, $349.99 with one-year added and $399.99 by itself
