Rumors on Sidekick 3 Built in Music Player (Look out Ipod)

As I mentioned a little while back in my review, the Sidekick 3 has a music player. The interface is simple, looking only like a list of songs, not a complex music player, but a clean list with a little green music note icon (like on Itunes) and then the song name next to the music note. The format of the songs is plain and simple. An interesting rumor was shared with me and I wanted to pass it along on the outside chance that someone can add a little credibility to thiss:

"I thought you would be interested to know that Danger and T-Mobile just struck a deal with Beyoncé and the Pussycat Dolls to pre-load some of their upcoming songs in the sidekick's music player when it will be released."

Interesting don't you think? The only reason I am sharing it is because I believe it is likely true because of the Sidekick's previous marketing "friends" Paris Hilton, Snoop Dogg and the host of rappers who love the Sidekick and Hiptop platform. Also, it would make sense that the company would want to market the music application in the new Sidekick 3. If anyone has anymore tips, feel free to email me at sidekicker3@gmail.com

I dont get why everyone needs 12 days for pictures. The ones in this blog are all true other than the phoney OS shot. Unless you're waiting to see the OS then theres no point because you've already seen the sidekick. The release date isnt getting pushed back. They aren't delivering us sk2's anymore, so whatever stores have them have them. June 1st we recieve them but I dont know for sure what day we sell them. Ill be sure to post the day UPS drops them off. By one lucky person in the store im sure gets to use the display model until it's time to put it out.. ::cough:: hahah.

How can a release date be pushed back if hasn't even been formally announced. You all are crazy.

Here's what I can see on this:
1) The SK3 is going to be coming out (no one knows for certain).
2) This site must be legit because I was sent here a 3 weekends ago by a T-Mobile SK2 2nd level tech.
3) When I returned the loaner I was using to a store (my beloved SK2 died on me so I had to get a new one) last Saturday I was informed that no one knows when the SK3 was coming out.
4) Pretty strange the date on the last picture was Jun 26, 2006. (but not stating that this means that is when it will be released.

why put beyonce and the pussy cat dolls on their?..I mean all pretty girls but put something on that will stay on my playlist..I mean I don't know about you guys and girls...but I will quickly delete those songs....and I have one question...When the sk2 was released..did they have a pre-paid plan?..I'm with sprint and have a treo but I want a sk3 for the i.m., so I was wondering if the sk3 will be available under a pre-paid plan....Thanks

Is the sk3 going to come w/ a default sd card (memory card) or will we have to purchase one for music? If it comes w/ one how much memory will it have? I'd rather not walk around w/ a sk3 and an ipod. It would be nice to have everything in one device.

 
At 6:20 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I think that new pictures of the SK3 will be released on 06/06/06, but I'm not sure. The FCC/T-Mobible/Danger should be releasing pictures really really soon. (early june I believe.)

 
At 6:52 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Can someone explain to me what OS is? All I know is that the sk3 shall be released pretty soon...i'm tired of my sk2 it keeps freezing and it looks bad lol...So t-mobile forced me to buy a razr..I had to full fill my need of a new phone lol...and i'll get rid of the sidekick 2 and get the sidekick 3 when it comes out...so many release dates for me in one week..woot!If it's a new picture I hope it's a full faced clear HQ shot lol...

Yeah I don't wanna carry around an ipod and sidekick either my friend. I'm currently crossing my fingers for atleast 2 gigs

 
At 12:05 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

My question is whther or not it will let you use your iTunes music. Unless ITunes approves the chances of putting your iMusic on the sidekick3 seems pretty unlikely.

 
At 12:11 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

ATTENTION Can you please confirm if the Sidekick 3 bluetooth SUPPORTS A2DP Stereo song playing profile? So it can support stereo ear pieces that go inboth your ears so you can listen to songs using wireless headphones? Please say it does!! Thanks

 
At 12:45 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Sk3 or ipod? "Sidepod" screw itunes, if you can actualy put your own music on the sk3 I can't ask for much more. That's all I'd need.

 
At 1:24 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

The fact that the owner of this site even posted something like this makes me believe he's not real. Why would danger waist there time doing that? Not everyone likes their songs. and it would take so much longer for them to release the sidekick3 if they had to preload a bunch of songs on it. duh! it seems so pointless.

 
At 1:35 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

So.. A audioless player/sk3?

 
At 1:59 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

pulling sk2's off the shelf means sk3's will be out within a month.

stop asking the release date. no one knows.

 
At 2:24 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

this site was the first one to publish a review AND the marketing picture of the Sidekick 3...what's not real about that? Just because he is getting a tip on potential marketing efforts, doesn't change anything.

^ You are right. To the guy asking about the bluetooth headphones. I can only hope. In our meeting today we discussed how the new Nokia 6103 doesn't support that. In everything I've read theres been nothing other than that it's bluetooth enabled. I wish I knew the answer to that myself. Let me also clarify something for some people. The music doesnt go into the sidekick. The sidekick merely reads a miniSD card that you load your own music onto. It comes standard with 64mb.

is the sk3 going to be already pre loaded with music ?

Yes it will be preloaded with beyonce's "check on it" and pussycat doll's latest hits. it will have these songs because its 'returning' the favor to these celebs. They advertise the sk3 and they (Danger, Inc.) promotes their music.

 
At 6:18 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

omg 64mb thats like 10 songs. i see im going to have to get that gig that same day i get that s3.

 
At 7:55 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I talked to a danger rep yesterday and I asked him about the sk3, he said he didn't know anything new he only knew the stuff about the fcc. so I guess the danger reps don't know anything...... or was he just trying to through me off??

How will the sk3 work w/ a gig or 2 gig sd card? Will it slow it up? Cause it to freeze? How do you transfer the music? Any chance you can upload drag and drop audio via usb? I'm sure I'm not the only one w/ these questions.

i dont think that beyonce and the pussycat dolls need danger to do promotion

its not like they are some struggling indie band who no one knows about

if you knew anything about electronics......

you hook up a card reader to your computer, which you then transfer the songs to the card in the card reader.

then put it back in the SKIII.

Well being that I obviously don't "know anything about electronics" how do I hook up a card reader to my computer?

I have a question for BSD do you know what are the actual confirmed apps on the Sk3

 
At 2:45 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

It will be pre-loaded with music, of course it will. It has to show people a preview of it.

You can purchase a 1gb for the sk3. 2gb have been made but are not out yet.

only 10 days until new pictures surface. now how long until a release date?

it sounds to me like Sony has a good chance on a lawsuit against Danger. the PSP and the SK3 are the samething,lol. what can the SK3 do different?

 
At 7:08 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

[B] i wonder what other songs will be on there besides beyonce and pussycat dollz I hope its some good songz [/B]

 
At 8:05 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

about the card reader, you have to buy a card reader that connects to your computer via USB.

they arent very expensive at all, its like transferring photos from a digital camera, im sure if this is how its implemented, there will be instructions in the manual on how to do it.

Its also going to have a 1.3 megapix camera wiht a better flash and will hopefully have better screen quality and bluetooth technology

I would think it will come with songs from Paris Hilton because her album is rumored to come out rite around the same time as the SIDEK!CK III and she has always been a big promoter for them!
