Separating Truth from Rumor on the Sidekick 3

Some new details about the Sidekick 3 have emerged, this is from a reliable inside source that I used to trust 100%, until she was wrong about SonicBoom. It's hard to know what is real.
  1. SonicBoom is the real name, it's no fake as I once thought.
  2. Hiptunes is the real name, the word "springloaded" is an important part.
  3. Hiptop.com has published several random hints about the Sidekick 3 throughout their website for the last three months. Hiptunes is the confirmed name of the Music software
  4. The real Sidekick 3 manual has an orange and grey header at the top of each page.
  5. T-Mobile will NEVER refer to the Sidekick 3 as Hiptop 3, especially in their manual, it would confuse the consumer, as well as the fact as it is NOT called a Hiptop, it's called a Sidekick
  6. The public will be pleasantly surprised with a new feature on the hiptunes OS that may take iPod by storm

RIGHT!!! I KNEW IT!! Do a google search for sonicBOOM and another program will come up (hmmm.. Copyright problems..) Also USB 1.1 on page 18, since when do NEW devices use USB 1.1?????? And a profesional would put a little " * " next to the top sentence and on the BOTTOM put Remeber You are sharing this memmory with your pictures and videos. And i know that there must be a program to sync with the computer thats gonna come with the SideK!ck 3, like the MDA......

I'm first.. WTF... do I win something? LOZERS.

Quite a boast about the iPod. I doubt seriously this will have the same following.

Still, I am anxiously awaiting the new Sidekick 3 (especially since my screen is messed up on my SK2 and I really need a new one.)

I don't think "Hiptunes" has an OS. Maybe an application, but not an OS.

Watch out or there will be another nub/trackball OS/application debate ;)

i know its a big deal on this blog to be 1st so i jus wanna say HA! IM FIRST! SUCKAS!!!!

uh, if they were distancing themselves from the "hiptop" name in order to not cause mass confusion why would they release an application called hiptunes. (yes, application, not an os. for all you clueless people, os means OPERATING SYSTEM. there would not ben an OPERATING SYSTEM on the sidekick for mp3's, it is an APPLICATION)

sidekick is better than hiptop! and hiptunes is more relevant than SONICBOOM!

Q- "If your #5 point is true, why would the music player be HIPtunes?

I thought tmo was distancing themselves from the HIPtop name? :-/ "

A- the music player OS was created by Danger (hiptop) and in every other market the sidekick3 is hiptop3. So why would danger NOT tie it in with the branding for the hardware? Just because T-Mobile decides to call the hiptop a sidekick does not mean that the Danger marketing people have to follow suit renaming their music application just for T-Mobile
