Amazon / T-Mobile Will Pay You $50 to Buy a Sidekick II

I’ve never completely understood the whole cell phone industry subsidize handset thing, but I’ll roll with it (ok – I understand it – market share, total value of the customer, service plan lock-in, uplift pricing for additional functionality over time).  I love my T-Mobile Sidekick II (as you’d expect since I’m an investor – but I really do love it even though Amy forbids me from taking it to bed with me).  You can get it for NEGATIVE $50 from Amazon right now.

Paris Hilton loves her Sidekick II also (note to self – don’t use your famous dog’s name as your password).  If you want a demo of how she uses it, click here.
