T-Mobile pulls Slide due to sudden restarts

T-Mobile Sidekick Slide

After some recent problems with the Sidekick Slide that cause it to restart unexpectedly while sliding the screen, T-Mobile has announced that they are pulling the product from its list of offerings. Gizmodo reports that the sliding action causes the device to lose connection with its battery, forcing a shut down, and that a temporary fix is to put a shim in between the wall and the battery. T-Mobile is not the only one listing problems with its hiptop device, as Australian phone company Telstra is noticing the same sort of problem with the Motorola Hiptop Slide. T-Mobile's website merely states that the product is temporarily out of stock, and has not released any further information as to when the Sidekick Slide will be available again.
