If you're not a fan of the color purple, how about scarlet? Today, T-Mobile announced the immediate retail availability of the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide Scarlet.

Let's start with the latter since it brings something new to the mobile messaging device: a slide-up screen (all together now: oooohhh, ahhhh).
