The latest Sidekick 4 certainly lives up to all of our expectations from Sidekick. The current selling point for this latest in the line of Sidekicks is the customizable “skin” which can be ordered as a replacement for the solid-coloured ones. Of course, the Sidekick 4 incorporates more than merely aesthetic changes.

Its pocket-friendly design measures 0.4 inches shorter and weighs 0.9 oz lighter than the more expensive LX, and it also comes packed with features which were sorely missing from the more minimalist iD. One of the more notable ffeatures is the 2.0 megapixel camera which can take both still images and lower-quality video clips. The 2.6 inch WQVGA swivel screen has a 400 x 240 resolution, which is an improvement over previous models, which could still do with some improvement, as could the Bluetooth functionality.
