One of the mobile phone hardware design that I love is the Sidekick LX 2009. I’m a fan of it’s sleek design. I was sad when Danger got acquired by Microsoft and the platform just sort of slowly started it’s demise. Today T-Mobile announced that it is pulling the Sidekick from it’s list of mobile phone offerings starting July 2 according to the Phonescoop site.
As if the recent problems of T-Mobile with it’s Danger / Sidekick users recently weren’t enough T-Mobile has another bigger problem to solve right now. It seems that all T-Mobile connected phones (at least a good majority of them if not all) is currently experience connection problems as T-Mobile via its Twitter account has posted a status that they are aware of the problem and doing their best to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
It looks like a couple of Android updating issues have cropped up recently. One of them is regarding users of the T-Mobile G1 mobile phone.

Europe is so cool! Well not only do I love all the beautiful places in Europe but they also get to try out the newest connected phones. We all know that the Android G2 aka HTC Magic mobile phone is already on its way. T-Mobile, still not satisfied with a couple has now planned for a third Android mobile phone.
Yup, got that right a G3! It seems the T-Mobile G3 will be coming from Huawei and is scheduled for a July 2009 release. From the looks of it, the G3 will be an Android phone for the low-cost mass market. Although these days, the definition of a low cost phone is also becoming more of what I’d call a connected phone. Initial specs seem to include a 5-megapixel camera, headphone jack and wifi.
T-Mobile, the first network provider to use the Android open mobile platform, has revealed its plans of using Android on netbooks. This will bring us closer to truly blurring the line between a mobile phone and a computer bring the advent of a really connected phone in the horizon.
I’ve read over at TmoNews T-Mobile has released its scheduled phone releases for the coming months. What’s very interesting for me is the May 13 release date for Danger’s newest and greatest mobile phone — the Sidekick LX 2009. Why? As we all know, Microsoft acquired Danger a while back. I would have thought that since Microsoft’s acquisition, people over at Danger was busy porting Windows Mobile to the Danger platform.
