Is July 10th The New Sidekick 3 Release Date?

Tons of reports coming in that the official release date for the Sidekick 3 has been pushed back to July 10, apparently this potential launch date is also being telegraphed to T-Mobile reps. While I can't confirm this date 100%, I can confirm that there have been delays and problems in the production of the unit. I don't believe the problem lies with Danger however, I believe the issue is with Sharp and I think there is some kind of production setback on the radio side. T-Mobile told a select group of people they would be making samples of the Sidekick 3 available to them earlier in May, but now they have apparently pushed back the delivery date. I expect more details to surface soon so stay tuned and remember, if you have any pics to share, send them to sidekicker3@gmail.com

>why dont they just officially announce it already

I imagine one reason is they don't want Sidekick 2 sales to dry up before the Sidekick 3 is ready. My local T-Mobile story still sells the 2, and I imagine there's more than a few still around.

With a brand new product, it makes sense to announce it as far ahead as possible, but with an upgrade, pre-announcing just hurts sales on your current product. One reason why Apple generally doesn't release information on upgrades to the iPods or Macs before they're pretty much ready to go.

See my friend from t-mobile did tell me to wait to get a sidekick until the new one is out, and that sidekick II was discontinued, but she said it won't be out until the beginning of september due to bugs they're still working on...

I normally don't post anything because of the majority the information is incorrect. But I can say that you are right about the SidekickIII coming out soon. I saw it in the video today 6/4/06, MTV HIts in the video of Paula DeAnda featuring Baby Bash -- I'm Doin To Much. It was black sidekick they did show much of the ball that was covered by the hand. But you are on point.

~~You can't "push back" a date that never existed. T-Mobile/Danger/Sharp NEVER announced an official release date. All of the dates that you have heard were pure speculation. Therefore this new date (July 10) is not a "push back", its just a new speculation. Even though it is probably the best speculation so far, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Of course it will be out in Canada. But not the same time U.S. will have it. You will probably have to wait a few months.

Danger/Sharp has asked the FCC for a 45 day confidentiality agreement. This means NO ONE can have/own/use/see/know anything about the SK3 before this confidentiality agreement has expired (except for the bluetooth, 1.3 MP camera and mini SD slot that is on the FCC web site). This agreement expires June 6. Of course a select few of T-Mo/Danger/Sharp employees need to have it, but it can not show up in a video. What you saw is most likey a Mr. Cartoon SK 2 or an entirely different device.

No one knows. It most likely will come in prepaid, if not right away, eventually. Well, "eventually" is a given. When SK2's came out, they were not available right away, but that is because this feature was not an option at all. Will they come out as prepaid right away this time around? Only time will tell.

The video with Paula DeAnda featuring Baby Bash does not feature the Sidekick 3. What is displayed is the Black MR. CARTOON Limited Edition Sidekick II. Just thought I should clarify that for people.

i saw that paula video too i was wondering about that if that was an SK3 but i was at my tmobile store in Cleveland and they said SK2 was discontinued so dont buy one and just wait becaus ethe SK3 is coming real soon but she wasnt aloud to tell me when

Being that I highly doubt that the reps are being telegraphed anything noting what century it is right now, I'm guessing your information is yet again bunk.

I heard July 10th as well. I hope that it's true, but im not holding my breath for it! Thats what most of the T-mobile reps are saying most currently. At least their saying somthing now. Right.

Hey I called tmobile today June 13 2006 and ask the rep about that new nokia phone and why it was so high in price. Then i switch the conversation say that i wanted to update to a new phone. He said that tmobile will have new phones coming out every month, he did say for how long. Then he ask me what phone do you currently use and i said sidekick 2. He told me TO HIGHLY WAIT TILL THE END OF THIS MONTH . HE SAID THAT 3 TIMES. he also said that YOU WILL BE VERY HAPPY AND JUST HOLD OUT IF I WAS YOU. I telling you the truth and I am going to wait it out. I do wanna new phone but hopefully the sk3 comes out the end of this month. He sounded exicited himself.
