Tech Beat: T-Mobile tokidoki and more...

by Kenyatta D. Pious
Around here we adore T-Mobile primarily because it always seems like the company is always bettering its phones and thinking out the box when it comes to accessories. Sleek phones, chic price points, and smart accessories is what fash-insiders have come to expect and why they (and we) flock to T-Mobile. Here are a few NEW T-Mobile offerings that impressed us:

tokidoki: The popular Japanese-inspired brand, tokidoki, has collaborated with T-Mobile to offer a variety of uniquely designed shells exclusively for the latest T-Mobile Sidekicks. There are four tokidoki shells available now for the Sidekick LX '09 and three shells for the Sidekick '08.
