More tidbits on the Sidekick 3

Forget what the FCC manual says, the music player on the version of the Sidekick 3 I saw is called SonicBoom. Also, the trackball is great when you are accessing a web page because you can use it to scroll easily left or right when you are going through a page with a detailed menu (think Craigslist). It's easy to see why someone wouldn't call it a trackball though, you can't really tell that the ball is moving. Also, the icon for the web access on the one I saw is a huge full color picture of the earth.

Stay tuned, there are a couple of bombs about to drop on the Sidekick 3 blog...

Hey, BSD, we believe you. :)

Things always change prior to release. Heck, even with the FCC documents released, a handful of small (possibly invisible) things will definitely change prior to shipping. And there will almost certainly be an update shortly after launch.

Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure the FCC is more up-to-date. Not a bad thing bad in this case; "Music Player" is a better name, in the grand scheme of things.

Looking forward to the new info... BSD EEN BOMB ZAL DROPPEN! :D

Hopefully he meant the good bombs! Like a june 26th release date instead of a july 6th one!!

I'm hoping the BOMB is video capability - that would make the Sidekick 3 a TRUE iPod killer!
