    “As T-Mobile looks to further innovate and raise the bar for the next iteration of the T-Mobile Sidekick, as of July 2, the Sidekick LX and Sidekick 2008 will no longer be available through T-Mobile, including retail stores, care, telesales and online. While we work on the next chapter of our storied Sidekick franchise, T-Mobile will continue to provide our loyal Sidekick customers with product service and support. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the months ahead, which we expect will provide customers with a new and fresh experience.” T-Mobile

    Meanwhile existing customers are being reassured that there will be plenty of product support while they still have their devices, though we don’t know if that will include future software updates.  Speculation had been made back at the start of the year that T-Mobile was looking to phase outSidekick and replace it with Android-based alternatives with hardware keyboards.
