Thanks to various leaks, it has been known for some time that Danger, Inc. is putting together a sequel to the Sidekick 2, its popular cellular-wireless handheld. Recently, a possible release date for this device was revealed.

According to, the Sidekick 3 will be released on July 10 by T-Mobile USA.

It is not known, though, what this device will cost.

More Information from the FCC

Several months ago, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) gave T-Mobile permission to release the Sidekick 3 in the United States. At that time, however, the maker of this device asked for complete confidentiality.

Apparently, this handheld was supposed to debut before now, because the 45-day confidentiality request has expired, and the Sidekick 3’s user manual is now available on the FCC web site.

Some Details on the Sidekick 3

This will clearly be a breakthrough model for the Sidekick line as it will include many features not in any previous model.

This includes support for Bluetooth short-range wireless networking and a miniSD slot, something no previous Sidekick has had.

In addition, this will be the first Sidekick with a removable battery and a 1.3 megapixel camera with flash.

Not everything about this device has changed. the Sidekick 3 will apparently resemble its predecessors’ shape, including a color screen that pivots aside to reveal a miniature keyboard.
