A new Sharp Android phone has made its way online, and some of the details are suggesting that the phone could be the next version of the popular Sidekick. Judging by the pictures that have leaked online, it definitely looks as if it could be the next version of the Sidekick, although there is no definitive information suggesting that it is the Sidekick at this time. The reason that many people are doubting whether or not the device is the new Sidekick is because the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G was recently released and has been quite popular for the company that was recently acquired by AT&T.
The phone in the pictures shows a slide up screen in the same way that the Sidekick as used its screen for the last few years. The device will reportedly have a 3.2 inch display and will also have GPS and a HVGA resolution. Everything seems to be falling in line for the phone to be the next Sidekick, but do not expect the company to announce it any time soon.
It would not be surprising to see the next Sidekick be on Android such as Unlocked LG GW620 Eve, Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc etc.., as they are looking to re-enter the US market in a big way. The device will hopefully have some beefed up hardware that will allow the phone to be used with some more popular apps and games.
Do not expect the company to comment on this story at this time. The picture that leaked is probably of a prototype and could be of a completely different phone, even if everything that can be told so far points to the phone being the next Sidekick. At this time it is not completely clear where the picture first surfaced from, which will further add to the speculation that the phone might actually be a prototype.
