Amazon.com: Cell Phones: T-Mobile Sidekick with Camera Attachment (T-Mobile)

I'm a sucker for portable computers. I've had my eye on the Danger Hiptop since they were preannounced, and I've decided to take the plunge. I'm way overpaying on my cell-phone plan (since I use fewer minutes now), but I can't change without signing a contract for another year, and I doubt my phone will stand another year.

Since Amazon is selling the T-Mobile version of the Hiptop, called the Sidekick, for $99.99 after mail-in rebates from T-Mobile and Amazon, I'm taking the plunge. Add in a $15 promotion from Amazon on any order over $99, and I'm paying about $85 for the Sidekick and camera attachment.

I'm expecting the Sidekick to drop my "number of toys carried" by one, as the Palm VIIx and the phone morph into one. More when it arrives.
