T-Mobile and Danger Inc. officially launch the Sidekick 3 almost a week earlier then expected

T-Mobile and Danger Inc. officially unveiled the Sidekick 3 today, 6 days earlier then we had expected. DailyTech reported that the Sidekick 3 had cleared the FCC less than 2 weeks ago. The Sidekick 3 will get a swanky debut at The Hollywood Palladium where celebrities and Sidekick fans alike will fawn over the latest in mobile communications. "The T-Mobile Sidekick 3 is a social lifeline; it's a must-have device for those who need to be in touch with their circle of friends on their terms. Featuring new enhancements and added features requested by avid users, T-Mobile Sidekick 3 delivers best on what it promises: a rich, user-friendly communications experience that meets the needs of anyone who wants to be connected," said VP of Marketing Chidam Chidambaram.

The official specs include:

  • 240 x 160 pixel, 65,000 color display
  • ARM9 processor
  • Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Bluetooth 1.2
  • 1.3 megapixel digital camera with flash
  • miniSD Slot
  • 64MB of SDRAM
  • 64MB Flash memory
  • Trackball for one-handed navigation
  • MP3 Player

The Sidekick 3 also comes with all the usual software perks as well, including a web browser, calendar, contact manager, email client, IM client and a whole host of other applications. The Sidekick 3 will sell for $249.99 through T-mobile with the purchase of a new contract or $349.99 without and will be available to current Sidekick owners first on June 28th. It will be released to the general public at T-Mobile retail stores on July 10th.

I had to cross the Motorola Q off my list for the same reason.

You guys looking for Wi-Fi should all go take a look at the Nokia E61.

If only Motorola hadn't been dumb about the MPX300. That thing seemed incredible. Opened two different directions based on usage (phone vs. pc). It had built in 802.11 support. It was GSM (dumb Q) compatible. I think it just needed a step up in the CPU compartment (hell the MPX220 was more powerful) and it sounds like it'd be perfect for me...that and the fact that it wasn't manufactured for any logical reason :-/
