Review: T-Mobile Sidekick 3

T-Mobile Sidekick 3

The limited edition T-Mobile Sidekick 3, which has been
glammed up with Diane von Furstenberg style, is fun and functional. With Diane's signature hot-pink lips, this phone is super sexy, so I'm not surprised Fergie and Jessica Simpson have both been spotted with it.

For my full review,

The Good
The Sidekick three has a super easy to use QWERTY keyboard. For someone like me who is constantly sending IM's, this feature is extremely handy! Other things I liked? This handheld has a good web-browser, simple interface, a music player and the voice quality is relatively decent.
What's also great is that you can call your contacts without having to open up the keyboard as well as using the included earbud stereo headphones instead of holding the handset to your face. Transferring music and photos is also made easy since there are no drivers to install, just connect the phone into an available USB port using the included USB 1.1 cable and your laptop or computer will recognize the miniSD care as an external drive. The Sidekick has the latest trackball for quick navigation - similar to the one found on the latest Blackberry Pearl.

The Not So Good
The overall size of the Sidekick isn't the greatest, and with a 6.7 ounce weight, this phone might not be the most versatile. Don't expect wi fi (although the Blackberry doesn't have this as well) and it is extremely difficult to unlock (unless you get the codes from T-mobile). Other downers? The Sidekick 3 has poor battery life and the camera takes fuzzy pictures.

For more info, visit T Mobile, where you can buy the Sidekick 3 for $349.99.
