The FCC has cleared the Sidekick III and T-Mobile is expected to launch the new device June 26th

Danger’s Hiptop 3, better known as the T-mobile Sidekick III, has been cleared by the FCC and is ready for its rumored June 26th launch according to documents recently posted on the FCC website and statements made from “reliable leads” to Mobile Magazine earlier this week.

The new Sidekick III like its predecessor is manufactured by Sharp and will feature:

  • Rotating screen
  • QWERTY thumb keypad
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Mini SD memory card slot
  • MiniUSB port
  • 1.3MP camera with flash

The Sidekick III also comes with all the features we’d expect from the sidekick line including an MP3 player, web browser, calendar, contact manager, email client, IM client and a whole host of other applications.  Pricing is not currently known for the new Sidekick III but it is expected to be the same as the now discontinued Sidekick II which sells for $249.99 through T-mobile with the purchase of a new contract or $349.99 without.

"Paying an extra $500 for a computer in this environment -- same piece of hardware -- paying $500 more to get a logo on it? I think that's a more challenging proposition for the average person than it used to be." -- Steve Ballmer
