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:
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.
