RESTON, VA – April 13, 2011 -- Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced that Wirefly customers can now pre-order the T-Mobile Sidekick® 4G on Wirefly.com before it officially hits store shelves later this month – and at a special Wirefly price.
Even with impressive hardware enhancements, the new Sidekick 4G still maintains the innovative and distinctive design synonymous with T-Mobile’s incredibly successful Sidekick dynasty. The 3.5-inch display marks the first Sidekick to feature a WVGA touch screen and its new "pop-tilt" hinge reveals the five-row full QWERTY keyboard that has long been a Sidekick trademark. The new Sidekick 4G powers those familiar features to a new generation. Built by Samsung, powered by Android, and running on T-Mobile’s blazing fast 4G HSPA+ network, the Sidekick4G is a faster, smarter phone with exceptional messaging capabilities.
“The legions of Sidekick fans are going to fall in love with the new Sidekick 4G,” said Andy Zeinfeld, chief executive officer of Simplexity, Wirefly’s parent company. “With the enhancements made to the handset, the move to the Android operating system, and support from T-Mobile’s blazing-fast 4G network, the new Sidekick 4G has solidified its position as the ultimate messaging smartphone and Wirefly is thrilled to help launch the latest version of such an iconic device.”
