eBay

its about time

from eBay
you may think its silly to have a sidekick that slides but if you think about it the swivel technique easily breaks and this way, you don't have to worry about that. i think its a genious
eBay

Should be called a Slidekick

from eBay
Why do they make the sidekick with a screen that slides? I mean the whole purpose of the sidekick is the nice swivel screen. I would recommend an LX instead of a slide. I have an LX and i think its the best sidekick yet.
