Nearly eight hours of talk time

from Wired

It's easy to see why MySpace moppets love the Sidekick: It's cute, uncomplicated, and cheap. It's also an IM addict's dream: The wide, tactile keyboard lets thumbs fly with precision, and the chat client offers simultaneous access to AIM, Microsoft Messenger, and Yahoo. Add push email, swappable color plates, and that nifty myFaves thing for easy BFF dialing, and OMG, it's just so kewl! Too bad it doesn't do much of anything else...

WIRED: Trackball and icon-based interface make for blissful navigation. Decent gameplay with D-pad. Nearly eight hours of talk time.

TIRED: No camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, memory card slot, or audio player. Stuck in slow gear on GPRS network. Just had its cool factor stolen by iPhone.
