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.

Personally, I hate sidekicks... The screen, when compared to say, a blackberry, is horrible and washed out. I personally prefer my Nokia e61 and Blackberry 7130. The E61's screen is AMAZINGLY clear with 16 million colors, and it has wifi! The only thing missing is a camera. But once the new blackberry comes out in a few months, it will pretty much have it all (wifi, camera, full qwerty, etc) except 3G. I'm holding out for that one!

I have a Nokia N70 and it has two fabulous cameras in it, plays MP3s, can do texting, emails, conference calling and it's my daily planner. I love my phone...when the original one was stolen, I got the EXACT same model to replace it because I love it so much.

The Nokia N73 is much better, as a camera phone with its 3.2megapixel Carl Zeiss Tessar camera. It depends on what you want to use your phone for (besides calling and texting), such as the MP3 function (the motorola phones with i-tunes) , camera functions, web surfing, IM etc etc....

A lot of the kids at school have these and they are absolutly obessed with them. It kind of isolates them from everyone else. IT has the same affect as the people who are ALWAYS listening to their iPod on campus (i use to be one of those people)It really closes you off from people (which is nice some times though) I like to go to overseas places- like Canada! -Britney Spears
