Sidekick III Coming In July


Rumors of the coming of the Sidekick III have been surfacing on the Web since late '05, but now there are pretty reliable sources reporting that it's coming will be sooner than later. Most reports estimate that July 10 will be the on-sale date. Unfortunately T-Mobile press representatives won't confirm this.

The first tip comes via mobilehipster. Thanks for being kind enough to post the link to the FCC documents about the device, which include the manual as well as internal and external photos of the latest iteration of the Sidekick.

Our second tip comes from viewing a page layout for an upcoming issue of a credible print publication that contained a photo of the gadget and a listing of new features.

Here's what the new Sidekick features:

  • Removable battery
  • Mini SD card slot
  • Music Player
  • GPRS/EDGE, and Bluetooth
  • USB Port

    Here's what the new Sidekick won't feature:

  • Wi-Fi
  • Video
  • Windows Mobile

    Perhaps I should not have been so hasty in upgrading my Sidekick II to an MDA and waited for the Sidekick III release instead. At least I know that the IM features will work.
