T-Mobile launches Sidekick 3 in UK

Mobile phones

T-Mobile has announced the arrival of a new Sidekick – Sidekick 3 – featuring instant messenger and email, a built-in camera, MP3 player and net access via its Web’n’Walk service.

It’s probably best to label the Sidekick 3 as a communicator than a mobile phone. Yes, it’s a phone, but its strengths probably lie in what else it can do. First, swivel open the screen and get full web access using T-Mobile’s Web’n’Walk, along with a full keyboard to key in the addresses and a trackball to move around the page.

Add to that email, instant messenger, calendar/diary functions, 1.3 megapixel camera (with the option of storing images online) and for the first time, an MP3 player. Internal memory is just 64MB, but you can boost this via miniSD (a 64MB card is included).

It should be in stores in December, price not confirmed, but likely to depend on your contract.
