T-Mobile USA unveils the T-Mobile Sidekick II
T-Mobile USA has announced the T-Mobile Sidekick II . The new model will be making its debut at an exclusive, VIP party featuring a performance from The Black Eyed Peas. The public will be able to get its hands on the T-Mobile Sidekick II this fall (USA).

The company says the Sidekick II went through a low-carb diet and is 25 percent slimmer than the original model. The new Sidekick II comes with a fully integrated camera and flash, enhanced phone sound quality and functionality such as a speakerphone; and enhanced battery life to give customers approximately 4.5 hours of talk time.

New features on the Sidekick II include:

  • HiFi Ringers: Get ringtones based on the straight-up, full-on actual recorded songs from top artists. Everything from hip-hop and rock to classic soul.
  • Voice Ringers: Download voice messages from music artists and celebrities who announce incoming calls.
  • New Games: Download the latest games for fun anytime, anywhere.
  • Contacts: Keep up to 2,000 of your personal contacts on this new version

    The color screen swivels open to showcase a full QWERTY keyboard. T-Mobile Sidekick II owners get their own email account and can set up as many as three external accounts to deliver email directly to their inbox. Yahoo! Messenger is now available for download to the T-Mobile Sidekick II, in addition to the fully integrated version of AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) service.

    Along with the launch of the T-Mobile Sidekick II, T-Mobile and Danger plan to introduce software that will allow Sidekick customers to wirelessly synchronize their desktop contacts and calendar information with their T-Mobile Sidekick. This synchronization software will be available for the T-Mobile Sidekick II and previous Sidekick generations. Price of the software will be announced at a later date.
