Sidekick updates…

T02031-01It looks like a lot of users of the T-Mobile Sidekick received a pretty nice “over the air update” Friday and throughout the weekend. AIM was updated, UI evolution arcade was added for Sidekick I users, Yahoo Messenger was added and many navigation, device, web, email and camera enhancements. Overall, looks like a nice update.

    this Over The Air update (or OTA) has been rolling out for the past 3 weeks.

    The process goes like this: for beta testing, it is randomly downloaded to a group of 500-1000 people. Then, if customer support isn’t flooded with calls, they go ahead and roll it out to people, at staggered intervals as to not have the serveers die, randomly (e.g. 500 random phones every hour).

    BTW, UI Evolution game has been around since the B/W sidekick, it just wasn’t available to later models due to licensing issues.
