    T-Mobile Sidekick Gekko revealed

    Well, here it is, folks, the Sidekick Gekko/Aspen. It’s still unclear which name T-Mobile will be going with, but it’s clear that they’re the same device. From the looks of it it’s pretty obvious that the Gekko takes design cues from the iD and you may be able to customize the bumpers. Hiptop3 also has word that the screen on the Gekko will be the same Sharp AQUOS LCD that… Read More

    Breaking: Microsoft swallows up Danger, Inc

    According to a recent Microsoft press release, “Microsoft Corp. today announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire Danger Inc., the company responsible for the software and services powering many popular consumer handsets.” I like the Sidekick software interface.

    Breaking: Sidekicks Slide get update [Updated photos]

    Umm. So my Slide just prompted me that there was an update. Not sure what it does. Will have to do some digging. Is this a fix for the battery issue?

It means you give up a lot to get great email and instant messaging services and few, if any, third-party applications and very little freedom. Huh. Kind of like the iPhone, except without the messaging. So when I got the LX last week, I… Read More

    FCC Approves Sidekick 2.5?

    According to Phone Scoop, the FCC has approved a new Danger Hiptop. The devicefalls somewhere between the Hiptop 2 and 3. PC-150 is the model, but all of the details are not yet clear. What is known is that the device does not have Bluetooth and that’s about all that is certain. So it could be released on some provider other than T-Mo for all we know. The confidentiality request on the FCC… Read More

  • Mark/Space Discontinues MissingSync for Hiptop

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/Space and now, like the Autumn leaves dragged down the storm drain, it is gone. Is it really that unpopular to use a SK3 with a Mac? What's going on here, people? Is it a corollary effect? The more potential Swavorski crystals on a device the less you actually want to use it for something useful? Oh well. Anything else out… Read More
