T-Mobie Sidekick

Year released: 2002

Just Blaze: "The Sidekick was ill. The Sidekick was like a hallmark was mobile technology development. I may have been the first device to have its own ecosystem, its own, what we now call apps and app store. Tightly integrated, everything was controlled by Danger. It was kind of the initial model for what we do now with the iPhone. It was the first time you saw all your info backed up onto a server. If you got a new phone it was no problem, all your info would come back to you. As dope as the Sidekick 1 was, it was the Sidekick 2 that really put it over the top. Until this day, the Sidekick had one of the best mobile keyboards ever."
