More Sidekick 3 Box Art
The packaging on the Sidekick 3 this time around is a bit more grown up if you ask me. I also like the black and orange manual. I think it looks very good. What is most interesting to me this morning though is the number of people who are saying they aren't going to buy a Sidekick 3. Now I know not everyone is clicking on the poll, but the numbers speak for themselves. I have it set up so a user can't vote twice so it's a pretty accurate read on sentiment. Some people say "why come to this blog if you aren't interested in one?" Well I think that one reason why people have been coming is to get details, pics and to help make a decision. Cell phones today affect a person's lifestyle and their appearance is key, clearly some people are voting that an old-looking washed out screen does not reflect their personal style. I think Danger/Sharp ought to do what Nintendo has done, and plan a brighter, high quality screen to come out in 2007. Call it the Sidekick 3goodscreen. The current poll results (below) show that about 60% of readers will NOT get the Sidekick 3 as is, and the rest will upgarde or change from their current cell phone. That doesn't bode well for Danger.
