T-Mobile Sidekick 3 BOMB #1: RESOLUTION

The first bomb I am dropping is one I was wrong about when I posted the initial review of the T-Mobile Sidekick 3 several months ago. I had said the screen resolution for the Sidekick 3 was the same as the original Sidekick and the Sidekick II. Well that was incorrect, the screen resolution and overall quality is actually better. If I had to gauge the improvement, I would say it is 20% better, or that it has 20% more pixels and clarity than before but it's not immediately obvious which is why I was wrong in my first post. It is also still a far cry in overall quality from other new smartphone screens like the Motorola Q, Blackberry 8700 or the Palm Treo. I understand this isn't because of Danger though, I am told Sharp makes the decision on the screen quality.

Maybe sharp decided to have a lower screen quality to keep the cost down?

it could be a smart move

I wonder if the bluetooth will let your sk3 act like a modem to let your laptop borrow your edge connection...that would be good. I don't care about video or mp3, I want features/capabilities like that. And regarding the sd reader, I like the fact that everthing is backed up on the network now. Oh and I hope the keyboard doesn't suck.

of course the screen is rotating. look at the pic! i doubt it will be able to be used as a modem. that is on T-mobile. but that would be the ILLEST thing ever if it could be used as a modem.
