No one's going to be fooled into thinking this thing is the genuine article -- but for kiddies asking mom 'n pop for a Sidekick, this might be a decent substitute if actual phone communication isn't a priority. The $34.95 "Slide Click" serves as a super-basic organizer and calculator, while two of 'em can pair up to send text messages to each other within 50 feet. More importantly, with the Sidekick knockoff styling, the young'uns can look just as hip as their older siblings toting the real deal but without that pesky monthly bill.
