Radio Shack Lets Slip T-Mobile Sidekick 4G Release Date: April 20

T-Mobile’s been busy spreading word about the Sidekick 4G, the Samsung-designed Android reboot for the seminal line of messaging phones. The carrier just announced the phone a couple weeks back, and has since been releasing a series of video clips giving potential customers an overview of the phone’s main features. We’ve heard about some potential price points for the phone, but have been left in the dark as to when we might actually see it arrive. It looks like Radio Shack has fixed that for us, tweeting that sales will begin on April 20.

That Wednesday could be a big day for T-Mobile smartphones, as we’ve also looked into it as a potential release date for the G2x, the carrier’s re-branding of the LG Optimus 2X. A simultaneous release would give the company some great market coverage, offering both high-end and affordable options for someone shopping for a brand-new model.

While those with a preference for thin, sleek phones may balk at the Sidekick’s relative bulk, there’s no denying that there’s a demand out there for this form factor, which has only gotten more refined over the years the Sidekick brand has existed. If the phone’s design and focus on social networking and messaging catch you eye, mark your calendar for the 20th; you should be able to pick the Sidekick 4G up for either $100 or $150, depending on contract options.
