The newest Sidekick is in the house, and it's sporting Android!  Aaron unboxes the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G, which is made by Samsung.  It offers a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor (just like the Galaxy S line), 3.5-inch display, 3-megapixel camera, front-facing camera for video calling, and a fantastic five-row physical QWERTY keyboard.  The Sidekick 4G has Android 2.2, though it's a customized version that takes advantage of the Sidekick's history as a messaging smartphone.

So far, it's an awesome device that stays true to its roots.  Is it the best Android messaging phone out there?  We'll try to figure that out in the unboxing.
