The original Danger Sidekick phone was the first cellphone / PDA I ever bought for myself. I’ve been a fan since and have been upgrading religiously with every incarnation (except Sidekick 3, waiting for price to drop).
You might not understand it (at least Singaporeans didn’t), but with unlimited Internet access (built-in as an affordable plan), killer user-interface and a cleverly laid out keyboard, this was my ultimate blogging machine (was flickr-ing photos straight from its camera!) until I landed in Singapore where the service don’t work.
Starhub once sold and provided service for it, but silly Singaporeans didn’t know how to to appreciate the unlimited Internet service and opted slicker looking phones with regular data charges. Citing low uptake on the phone, we ended up with no Sidekick for Singapore. Boo-hoo!
Anyway, Danger Inc (which consists of an ex-Apple engineer team) has released the Sidekick iD which is priced at US$99 (w/ two year T-mobile contract). This affordable version lacks bluetooth and a camera, but it still rawks, especially for kids who just want to get online and chat with their buddies. I’d get the Sidekick 3 if it weren’t for the iPhone now, but I’d get the Sidekick iD if I had kids (which I don’t think I’ll ever).
