    Obviously I photoshopped it (I had a hard time with the tilted tmo logo coming out unblurred).

    But I am hoping that HTC is not wasting time giving us a new Sidekick because I know something like that means a highly customized UI. MotoBlur is already very Sidekick like so why not bring the Flipout over as the new sidekick and have HTC make an EVOish hspa+ handset for Tmobile?

    It already side...... uhhhh...... kicks.

    And Motorola has already produced a Sidekick in the past:

    That's weird when I typed fail there was no description saying anything about photo shop... Lol

    I'd love to see tmobile and htc get a android powered side kick... tmobile needs a high end android phone..
    1ghz+ physical key board of course swype front and rear camera a must amoled screen REAL BLUE TOOTH STACK to allow hid.. Full hdmi out

    Anything else I'm missing...?

    The highly customized UI would mean SLOOOOOWW updates. Tmo is already last to get any updates out of all of the non apple brainwashed carriers. Why slow down an update on a phone made by the only company halfway decent at getting updates out?

    I believe the ui doesn't effect update time anymore... I have an evo just got 2.2 froyo (with sense) this is the 2nd update since phone came out june 4th.. And froyo first even beating it the phones that don't have a ui..
    My wife loves the sense ui I love the sense ui..
    Sense is what is holding me back from getting cm6..

    Ui doesn't effect update anymore..

    How about they reinvent the wheel?

    instead of calling it sidekick, why not call it front kick? or back-kick

    or DROP-KICK!

    whoa , that last one was the money maker!!!

    maybe instead of the screen sliding up in the side kick,

    everything else can slide out making the screen the center point.

    left physical buttons slide out left, then the right side goes out right.
    and the physical keyboard slide down.

    Or may you can push a button and it just all pops out into place. DAMN!!!

    Isn't that what the flipout does? The screen stays in place and the keyboard "kicks" out from the side...........

    It just makes to much sense to make this a sidekick instead of having HTC produce what will probably be a redesigned mytouch slide with a swivel screen and some bs social networking intergrated ui.

    or what about instead of a slide out physical keyboard, the new side kick would have TWO screens.

    The under slide out screen would be used as a touch screen keyboard, and maybe it can be set so that you can watch a video on a bigger-dual screen.

    Hell ya! It would be the nintendo done better.

    Heck there are downloads in the market that let you play nintendo roms and gamboy roms.

    Why not?

    Excpet this would be way better.

    And we could add avatar on there if they like to
