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.

For what it's worth, Sidekicks have never been hacked. Someone with access to backend TMobile systems requested a password reset on Paris' account. Her security question was (stupidly) "what's the name of your pet?". Since that's public knowledge, he was able to reset her password, and log in to the web interface, and nab her content. To be clear, this process was not hacking, it was "social engineering" and dishonesty. Hacking would have involved something that would work wide-scale on anyone's account.

even my pc doesn't "lurk" myspace fast... because bandwidth, at myspace, is all kinds of misallocated.

All those damn glitter ridden tinkerbells and embedded-crosslinked videos... And the cute little garage bands that have their entire album available on MySpace Music.

That picture is a bit lossy for a PNG.

They are inherently lossless...

No offense but that made absolutely no sense.
