This comes with a big rumor tag, but a Hiptop3 reader claims that she spotted details on a 3G / GPS enabled Sidekick LX while doing a smartphone survey on Quizpoints.


The specs listed in the photo are as follows:

Social Networking Suite of Apps
- Facebook
- MySpace w/ video upload
- Twitter
- YouTube Mobile Access via browser

GPS Location Based Search
- Turn by Turn Navigation
- Microsoft Live Local Search and Maps

Content Creation
- Blog publishing, editing, and management client
- Photobucket Upload and Management
- Video recorder and upload to MySpace/Photobucket

- Signature Sidekick IM/SMS/E-mail Experience
- Microsoft Outlook/Exchange synchronization

- Large (3.2 inch WVGA) screen with sharp 854×480 resolution
- Thin design
- 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and video recording
- Large QWERTY keyboard
- Expandable memory up to 8GB via MicroSD

It could be a real product, it could be simple market research or it could be nothing at all, but if it's true the 3G , GPS and YouTube mobile access upgrades will be welcomed by Sidekick fans with open arms. [Hiptop3]



That would seem to be a nice device. But if the news came from a survey then I'd imagine that anything real is fairly far off. I took a Yamaha survey the other day and they had some wild off-road stuff they wanted opinions on. Kinda fun looking (in a way that I'd never buy) but I think it's a ways off.
