Image on Marketing Pic Not Showing New Operating System

It dawned on me this morning that the image of the Sidekick 3 below, the "marketing shot" is not actually showing the latest version of the operating system. It is instead showing the OLD operating system. The new one has a much darker color, a grey hue and different icons on the front with a different logo...and don't forget the mini-menus within each icon. Just wanted to point out this inconsistency with that hardware shot and what will eventually show up on the UI.

Because there would be no reason to develop an entirely new look and feel and functionality of an operating system only to say, "nahhh, lets just use the one that is 3 years old."

hey when it comes out will it have UMA, or should I wait for that one. Same with video, will the first SK3 have all the later functionality?

Everybody keeps saying the background needs to be customizable. It's not gonna happen. The background is the OS. Even through our reports of the sk3 they dont show a background either. It's just images of it off and open etc.

alright, the picture in the marketing shot has the same operating system as the picture lower on the same page

i dont see why you would think that it would be a different operating system if the marketing picture and the "leaked" photo have the same girl

and no its not from the kick2 its different

I dont understand why the sidekick 3 wont be able to record videos. It seems like the Sidekick 3 is going to be all other phones because more and more phones are able to record. I mean for a phone thats going to come out in maybe a month or so, you know how long we would have to wait for the sidekick 4? that one is most likely going to have video recording. im just saying what the hell is stopping them from having the video recorder now?

The background IS different

The whole "wheel menu" thing is the INTERFACE not the OS

And video recording capability is determined by the read/write speed of a cameras memory chip, so i think it is likely that the sk3 (a small brick of a smartphone) will support video recording/viewing

I really don't care about the video capability...I just wan't to use all the new features and also have a new phone..

Is it true that sidekick 2 owners will be offered a rebate if they buy sk3?
Also, will it be possible to watch video clips over the internet on sk3?

damm watching videos would be cool if you could do that on the browser.they should at least have that as a new feature. I cant freaking wait i need a new phone now though. It better be worth the wait.

Sidekick owners do not get a deal. As far as the comment to the background image not being the OS you are wrong. It does NOT support video. It comes with 64mb mini sd. That being said it runs on miniSD.
