3:35 PM -- I am testing out one of these new 2008 Sidekicks for a couple of weeks. I always liked how easy it was to type on the old ones and I'm happy to report that hasn't changed -- I'm writing this blog entry on the handset. Gimme this over a touch screen any day! This keyboard -- to my fingers anyway -- is still the best data entry method for a mobile device. I'll report back more on the other features after a more rigorous testing.

About the Author(s)

Dan Jones

Mobile Editor

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.

He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
