T-Mobile updates Danger's Hiptop over the air - and removes functionality
It's not clear if the latest update to Danger's Hiptop devices remove programs to make space for new functionality - or T-Mobile is just managing "their" devices.

Apparently users of Danger's Hiptop, a PDA style device connected to the T-Mobile network are not the "owners". The latest OTA (over-the-air) update removes programs from the device. Some reported that T-Mobile has the power to actually wipe out the device's content if the user asks to have it disconnected from the network - without giving the user chance or tools to backup contents, including PIM information.

The press release says only "Starting today, an OTA will be rolled out to all T-Mobile Color Sidekick owners. This Over-the-Air Update includes the following:

  • Color hiptops only: You may notice the removal of the Arcade Games. We are no longer providing these games through the color Sidekick.
  • The battery charge indicator in the title bar is more accurate.
  • Improvements were made to performance monitoring (back-office tools)."

  • More information:
