Sidekick two months in

I'm still liking the Sidekick as a Crackberry equivalent. The phone, however, sucks. My reception is bad at the office, sitting directly in front of a floor-to-ceiling window on the 8th floor smack dab in the middle of Buckhead, with several million square feet of office space. Same story from Miami, sitting on a 19th Floor balcony overlooking Biscayne Bay.

I even like the low-resolution camera, which can send 90 x 120 pixel color pictures through e-mail in seconds. For AIM, for e-mail, and even for web surfing, it does a better-than-okay job. Unfortunately, now that I have a job, the cell phone is more important than I intended it to be.

I suspect I'm going to have to buy a phone, and the existence of the incredibly cool Sony Ericsson Clicker suggests it should have Bluetooth. Is there a Bluetooth phone available in the US besides the T68 and T68i?

Update 3/4/03: Sony/Ericsson have introduced the T610, a replacement for the T68/T68i.
