T-Mobile Sidekick Slide power off problem – sales suspended

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide power off problem – sales suspended

T-Mobile USA suspended sales of the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide earlier this evening, November 16, after Motorola confirmed that some Sidekick Slide might inadvertently power off when the slide door on the front of the phone is opened or closed.

As of right now, Motorola is clueless as to the root cause of the power cycle issue, but they’re doing everything humanly possible to get to the bottom of this problem.

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile SideKick LX

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile SideKick LX

Alright, so I got the Sidekick LX the other day, and I have been playing with it for a while. The people at T-Mobile were great and sent me the device to toy around with, sadly the service where I live is shoddy at best, but the city where I go to school has great service, so I got to really test it out up there.

First off, let me state that I have never even seen a Sidekick before this one, so, this won’t be a review comparing this Sidekick to other previous Sidekicks, this will be a review about this Sidekick model, with comparisons to other devices I have used where applicable. Let me start by saying that this may not be the best phone if have ever had my hands on, but it is the best everything-else device I have had my hands on.

On to better news, they have decided to give both the Slide and the new LX a “Consumer E-Mail Upgrade” basically it makes it easier to set up and use your public email accounts from companies such as Yahoo! and AOL. Specifically for those two companies, they also support their PUSH email systems.

Well, with Mr. Rubin in the news a lot, one of the creators of Danger, the Sidekick mobile device manufacturer, lets take a look at a Sidekick that wasn’t from his former company, the Sidekick Slide made by Motorola. The Motorola phone doesn’t differ too much in the software department, it still uses the same OS as its Danger-made counterparts, but its screen doesn’t flip, it slides upward.

Overall, they liked it, the main thing they like was the aesthetics of the actual device, the way it looked, was shaped, stuff like that. They had some issues with the keyboard, and they kind of wished they had stuck with the rotating screen instead of the sliding one, but other than that, they liked it.
