sidekick 3

does anybody have new information about the new sidekick 3? I talked to a T-mobile rep. and June is the release month. I've 'googled' the phone, but it's all the same. doesn't have any press releases on their site.

Yeah... I'm jonesin for the new SK3. Especially since I've just bought the MDA and have had nothing but problems. AIM has a major delays and even texting seems to be delayed.

The local tmobile store said could be 1 month to 6.... lots of help there!

well obv., cause they can't give you an exact time for the release since sometimes things get pushed back. So if they gave you an exact date and it didn't come out, well guess what? you'd be back at the store going off. and that is why they can't really tell you the exact release date.

The MDA has a couple software updates that will make your aim and text run faster and smoother. Also the MDA is a Pocket PC first with Phone capabilities built in so that’s why it runs slow, as apposed to the sidekick which is always signed into the danger network and your online actually all the time...

Couple things you have to remember with the Sidekick 3. 1. It’s been a rumor ever since the sidekick 2 came out. People figured since there's a sk2 there must be a sk3 soon. Multiple pictures online have depicted what’s suppose to be a SK3, but it’s nice to finally see something real. So basically, NOT everything you hear about the SK3 is true.

Danger doesn't make the Sidekick either. Sharp does. Only thing Danger does is make the OS.

The rep you talked probably thought you wanted the Sidekick II. Since we should be getting more in stores in June.

We haven't gotten a release date for the sidekick 3 yet. The FCC just cleared it for use last month and it takes another 6 months to a year before the comes out in the stores after that. The earliest it will come out is probably christmas of this year and even that is wishful thinking.

That is not true. When the FCC clears it, that means it can start to go on sale. FCC just means they are giving Sharp, T-Mobile and Danger permission, just like any other company that uses something electrical or with radio waves the go ahead to start getting ready so sell them. They should be out in either June or early July. Don't start that September or around Christmas time frame stuff, since the SK2 is well outdated and should have been replaced last fall.

Yea it doesn't take 6months to a year. As soon as the FCC clears it, it can be sold right there and then. I really hope it comes out in june, lol.. but that's just wishful thinking Sad
