FCC confirms that a 3G Sidekick is on the way


At this point, it’s not really a secret that a new Sidekick is on the way. The rumors have long indicated that the next ‘Kick would be 3G-enabled, and no one really doubted it – but the FCC has gone ahead and confirmed it anyway. Smack dab in the middle of their approval lays mention of 1700 Mhz AWS support, perfectly suited for T-Mobile’s budding 3G network.

There’s not a whole lot to see outside of the standard mind numbing charts and SAR test results, but it does confirm that the Sidekick 2009 will be manufactured by Sharp – you know, if anyone was curious.

Feel free to ship your test unit our way, FCC-folks. We won’t tell.
