T-Mobile: Sidekick 4G Is Discontinued

Just under a year after it revived the Sidekick line with the Samsung-manufactured Sidekick 4G, T-Mobile is discontinuing the device to make way for newer, shinier things. However, fans of the Sidekick brand and form factor need not fear, as Tmo plans to continue the Sidekick series in the future. In a statement sent to ​The Verge​, the carrier says, "while the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G is being retired, it doesn’t mean we are discontinuing the T-Mobile Sidekick line." So there you go, Sidekick fans. It's not clear when or if we could see another Sidekick debut, but it's good to hear that T-Mobile hasn't decided to discontinue the line. After all, considering how long the Sidekick brand has been around and the fondness that some people have for it, I'm sure there are several folks out there that'd love to see another Sidekick come to market.
