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.

yes, it has its own email address - at least the "2" version of the sidekick. My gf has it, and at first it seemed to be a toy, but it has become quite handy over time. Looking up movie times while outside, taking on aim continuously, checking email while away from computer...

Its one of those things that you don't need, but once you have one and get used to it, it becomes a crutch to not have. Kind of like a cellphone. You learn to depend on it.
