FCC Approves Stripped-Down Sidekick
Jan 19, 2007, 6:20 PM by (staff)
The FCC today approved a stripped down version of the Danger Hiptop. The model, PV-150, has a Sharp model number in-between the Hiptop II and the 3. It will be a tri-band (850/1800/1900) GSM device but it is not clear whether it will have EDGE or simply GPRS. It does not have Bluetooth, and may lack the Hiptop 3's other features like a camera and music player as well. Because most of the documents are still confidential, little else is known about this new Hiptop, including what it looks like and whether it too will be sold through T-Mobile as another Sidekick. The confidentiality request expires in mid-April, so it is likely this new device will be announced this Spring.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.
There's a whole new kind of 5G being launched and talked about in the US in 2022: C Band. It's much faster than existing "nationwide" 5G, yet has better coverage than hard-to-find mmWave 5G.

You are all wrong
It will not have a full browser, just a WAP browser. This is so Danger will not need to provide backend support to the carrier. The unit will also not sync with the Danger servers also. The only thing that will be provided are the core applications and whatever is available in the Download catalog.
Or maybe not. 😁
New device for deaf...???
A camera is sometimes a plus for everyone, so I dont see it a HUGE plus for the deaf community to lose that.
The 850 is something SK deffinetly needs to keep as i service an area that borders 1900 /850. the deaf community traded up all the Sk2's for the 3's when they came out for this feature.
All in all - looking forward to seeing if this is a sexy slimlin...
