Release Date Announcement is Near

I expect a release date for the Sidekick to be announced soon. It's June as far as I am told and I have had more than one T-Mobile Bothan spy tell me it's actually June 26th (Many Bothans died to deliver that information.) Why June 26th? I don't know, but it's all we have to cling to right now. Any ideas? Discuss!

"Man you are great for giving us sidekick lovers the info."

Info? Um, yeah. Any fool out there can make a website and post "info". This "info" is about as valid as what I left in the toilet this morning.

This visual images had us mentally thinking that release is approaching, has anyone experienced this approach with other new releases that took place before?

In the fall... nope.
November? Uh-uh.
By Christmas? Didn't happen...
First part of the year... came and went.
Dude! April 6th! Or not...
June... don't see it happening.

But hey, if you keep guessing dates after the previous guessed dates come and go, sooner or later you'll actually be right.

im pretty sure by reading this blog that the general consensus of sidekick users cant spell for shit.

Or use appropriate grammar, for that matter.

What if it is $349?

I really don't want to spend more than $199 but would still think about it at $249.

If you actually look at the FCC web site you'll see that they are keeping many of the "good" bits about the SK3 confidential until 06/06/2006. (06/06/06????) The SK3 is the number of the beast?!?!

This includes the USERS manual. So early adoption may begin in May but likely wide availability will be late to mid June as already stated here.

Keep in mind -- Sharp/Danger/T-Mobile don't want to hold this any longer than they have to especially given the apparent demand for a new and improved device. With FCC approval granted, mass production can begin in earnest.

May/June seems not only likely, but probable.

June 26th kids. Why do you think the date on the 3's image is the 27th?

Obviously SK2 users would get first dibs on the 3rd. So all this information sounds right.

Any chance that email won't be a walled garden? Biggest reason I abandoned it is the need to integrate with my other pop3 emails.

Also, I live and breathe Skype these days. Any word on whether the underlying OS is Linux, Symbian or WinMobile so it wlil run Skype?

Yah man, i cant wait for the SK3. My friend, An LA laker, Kobe Bryant did a personal favor for me by calling some people, who called some people, who got me an early prototype of the SK3. It was fake, and just a piece of plastic, and was a model of the SK1. I got so mad. We started fighting, and i got mad at him, and decided to give away all of his personal info. His phone # is not an LA number, but a DALLAS area code for privacy matters.
Cell:
(469) 583-4334
Call him, he hasnt changed #s in years.

Something you guys may be interested in. I work for Telstra in Australia - we were on the verge of launching the HipTop II here on the 26th of May (Danger seems to like that date). This has however been delayed due to regulatory issues with the Aus. Federal Police.

Anyway, the fact is we had a training session conducted by a rep from Danger in Palo Alto CA. He informed us to watch out for a 3G device around Christmas 2006, whether he was referring to the Australian release of such a product is unknown, but it would tie in with a May US release - we always seem about 8-12 months behind the rest of the world here Down Under.

All I can say is we receive the sk3 June 1st. Whether or not they go on sale that day I don't know. We had the T509 for 2 weeks before we sold it. Same with the color Pebl it'll be sitting for 1-2 weeks before we sell them. Stop reading false info about the sk3 everywhere else. Whoever runs this blog has the most true evidence. We have atleast 3 PDF's I'm surprised other employees haven't leaked those already. Point in case, expect it in June. Also I haven't been informed about any sk2 trade or anything. You can either take my word or listen to the other ignorant people who know nothing.

 
At 7:32 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Also one other thing. Stop believing the pre-order BS! How do you expect an authorized dealer to have phones faster than us at a corporate store? These people just want your money they can't pre-order anything! That is not how it works. No rep "holds" phones. We have a separate system for ordering our phones which takes even longer.

On about April 7th.

Yes, why take the word of one ignorant anonymous person over another ignorant anonymous person that tells you a date closer to what you WANT to hear?

You all make Mac fans look like paragons of fact-based reporting by comparison.

we have no clue, but the sidekick 3 is coming..and no one can't say it isn't because everything matches up! Look at the fcc label on the sk 3 and then look at the label for the sk3 at the fcc site...it all adds up, just everything, the menu picture is the same in 2 of the sk3 images...the sidekick has always made a summer appearance...

Well I'm the only anonymous idiot with their facts straight. Ask me any sophisticated question about the Sk3. I know all there is to know about it already. The box is black. You're gonna have a gift box option on it. Its $350 with a $50 mail in with a 1 year contract and $300 with a $50 mail in with a 2 year contract. Now stfu and wait until June 1st.

At 7:49 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

i have a question for you the dude who has his facts striaight. does the screen pivot or push up?

I think it pushes up...I like it that way...

 
At 3:41 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

ah fuck i hate the oush up thing. the thing that i think made the sidekick 2 the coolest was the fact that it swiveled up like that

 
At 4:15 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

you are all idiots who belive it pushes up. if you look at the closed picture, the tmobile sign is on the side of the nipple and on the open picture its on the side of the arrow keys. duh

Haha for one you can talk all the crap you want. The files were released for employees to view on 4-4-06. I know more about this thing than anyone on here. Who here knows that its got a 1500 Lion battery? Thanks stfu and sit down. If I said I got the info from a rep it'd be like saying I got it from myself. Do u think I post this to make myself look cool? I'm trying to inform everyone of what the deal is with it. Thanks.

damn, all the times in the above conversations are hella close. maybe its all the same person...? but anyway i actually belive the guy who is supposed to kno a lot. what else do you kno?

 
At 9:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

What else do you want to know? My regional manager was in the store today and he confirmed with me June 1st. But whether June 1st was the day we get them or the day we sell them I dont know. I mean we have the color pebls in store already. Anyone hear of the samsung 609? Ya may 15th we have them already though. Do you get what im saying now? June 1st might just be the day we get them. June 26th could really be the date they sell. Regardless I'll keep you informed as to the day UPS drops them off. Otherwise stop doubting me. You can take the info and do what you want with it. I'm just trying to help out with relevant knowledge.

$500

 
At 2:02 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I already stated it's 300 on a 2 year with a 50 mail in and 350 on a 1 year with a 50 mail in. Yes it is egde (gonna make things way better for browsing) enabled, supports video as well, and it still swivels. And theres a lot of differences between the sk2 and the sk3. You're stupid for saying its " only shinier and maybe a centimeter smaller "

You guys, seriously, come down. For one, it doesn't make anyone cool to cuss eachother out, because that makes everyone think that you're uneducated.
Let me start by truthfully saying that my second cousin is an employee to a main branch t-Mobile store. My birthday is May 28, so I requested a Sidekick 2. Most of you probably already know that the Sidekick 2 is discontinued, and you can only purchase it online. Well, I didn't really want to do that. He told me wait until JUNE 1 and you can get a Sidekick 3. So I thought, hey, how convenient, and that's exactly what I'm doing. Many people might be right, maybe it comes in June 1, but doesn't get sold. Whichever way, I'm getting mine June 1.

it is actually June 28th it will be available exclusively for Tmobile current customers
