Tmobile did say the Sidekick line would continue, and if they could keep the great keyboard, AND bring up the other specs closer to a high-end device, i would get that.
indeed thats the only thing I didnt like about the sidekick line . it seemed to be not as hardware intensive so kids could have a cool phone that didnt break the parents bank .... although I will say the sidekick 4g stepped it up a bit but if I were to get one id wanna see dual core atleast 8mp cam 1080 you know all the minimum specs to make it a superphone


But I just looked and apparently Tmo is discontinuing the sidekick line

Honestly I think the MT4GS may be the last of the great qwerty's -__-

whoa, you scared me for a minute there, but i think that was just the announcement for the Sidekick 4G being retired. 3 days after that article came this one, where they say the Sidekick line will continue(well, it's a little vague, but...):

http://www.tmonews.com/2012/03/t-mob...will-continue/

but yeah, the Sidekick 4G isn't bad at all, once they fixed some bugs and after i rooted and debloated it... i'm actually using that device over the MT4GS for a few weeks now. the processor is good, the screen is good enough for me, the keyboard is awesome; where they skimped i guess is on the smaller amt. of ROM/RAM, and on the 3 MP camera, which is kinda low for these days. but i really dig the physical design, the way the screen tilts slightly forward, etc.

that would be awesome to see what you described. it seems kinda like a no-brainer that that would be an awesome phone! i potentially wouldn't mind if they also upped the screen to 3.6 or 3.7 in. maybe

We'll find out soon enough. They're doing some new myTouches (including a low-end QWERTY, IIRC).

Hark my dear qwerty loving fellows!
I forecast a neeewww era of qwerty phones, which will work like that:

Buy qwerty-keyboard-equipment specially crafted for your next multi-core, hd display, uber slim device. Since it is so uber slim, it is not a problem to make it a bit thicker by attaching an external USB-keyboard. Also, by not needing any battery it will stay pretty slim and still feel good in your pocket. For the power users who want it, there can be even an additional battery, like for the Asus Transformer. You might also be able to use the keyboard as a charging device/ spare battery, even if you don't use the keyboard. (For trips, e.g.)

USB Android keyboard already exist (http://gigaom.com/mobile/how-to-add-...android-phone/) and smaller ones already exist for the iPhone (blurgh) even if it only works through bluetooth and needs its own battery to work (http://www.gizmag.com/nuu-minikey-sl...phone-4/18612/)

What do you say? U like? Or unrealistic?

No matter what cool QWERTY sliders come out, I'm going to go ahead and assume none of them will make it to T-Mobile. Still, the prices and customer service are great, so I have no intention of abandoning them. Having 4 major phone companies definitely helps keep things competitive. That being said, god I wish for once we'd get something like the Motorola Jet...

My carrier loyalty goes where the hardware takes me. On that account, the only reason I am with T-mo is due to the doubleshot. If this was a sprint device, i'd be with them.

If another carrier comes out with a device with a hardware keyboard and S4 or greater chipset, I'll be on their network in the blink of an eye.

I had a second doubleshot with no sim card or cell service for a while, I can find enough wifi that the carrier is really irrelevant when it all comes down to it .

I envy your ability to be so flexible, not a bad trait to have.

I live just on the outskirts of DC, so I could technically get any carrier. But I previously had AT&T, and their customer service was brutal. Verizon is the best obviously, but it's also too expensive for my taste. And for whatever reason T-Mobile gives me, essentially, unlimited data (I've gone over 8 GB *intentionally* more than one time without being throttled; I pay for 2GB) for dirt cheap and I have perfect service at my house. For me, it's a no brainer.

Very true, that the Wi-Fi infrastructure is greatly improving. Having a signal doesn't mean the end of the world, in most cases.
