Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile Launch 4G Phones


T-Mobile USA today unveiled the new T-Mobile Sidekick 4G by Samsung. Verizon Wireless also today announced that the ThunderBolt by HTC, exclusively from Verizon Wireless.

Samsung Sidekick 4G

One of T-Mobile's fastest smartphones running on its 4G Network, the new Sidekick 4G is capable of delivering theoretical peak download speeds of up to 21 Mbps.

The T-Mobile Sidekick has long been known for its distinctive design, and the Sidekick 4G does not disappoint. The 3.5-inch display marks the first Sidekick to feature a touch screen and its "pop-tilt" hinge reveals a five-row QWERTY keyboard.

Sidekick's Group Text feature lets users create, name, manage and participate in reply-all group text conversations, enabling them to lead their network in conversation and social planning. Group Text allows Sidekick 4G users to initiate and share the benefit of the application with SMS-capable devices from flip phones to smartphones. In addition, Cloud Text provides the option to text with friends or groups across platforms, whether from the comfort of their PC?s large screen and keyboard, or from their new Sidekick 4G.

The new Sidekick 4G also comes preloaded with Facebook and Twitter applications, and allows users to update their status from the notification pane and browse their feeds from the home screen. They have the ability to sync their social network contacts to the phone's address book, which lets them post to their friends' walls or comment on their status. And multitasking is easier with the Sidekick 4G?s jump key, a physical button that enables users to quickly switch between active applications, even during a phone call, or assign keyboard shortcuts to their favorite functions or applications.

Sidekick's Media Room features one place to enjoy music, videos, movies, YouTube, T-Mobile TV and Slacker Radio, and to search for content regardless of the source. The integrated media player, also accessible through the Media Room, spans across all media including music, video and Internet radio. Users also have the option to rent or purchase their favorite movies and TV programs directly from the Samsung Media Hub, which offers a collection of movie and next-day TV show titles from CBS, Fox, MTV Networks, NBC Universal, Paramount and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. Users also have the option to place Media Hub charges directly to their monthly T-Mobile service bill.

The new Sidekick 4G is also equipped with a VGA front-facing camera and pre-installed T-Mobile Video Chat powered by Qik. The phone is powered by Android 2.2 (Froyo) and an 1 GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor.

The new Sidekick 4G also comes equipped with DriveSmart from T-Mobile, a service that helps prevent distracted driving. When initiated, DriveSmart Basic provides automatic incoming call and message management, sending a customizable note to callers and senders, letting them know that the recipient is driving and will respond when it's safe.

The new T-Mobile Sidekick 4G is expected to be exclusively available by later this spring in two colors.
