Holy Sidekick Rumors! Now we've got another email about the Sidekick 3 sent in from yet another reader (Oh readers, how we love you) and this time, it's juicier than ever. According to our reader SuperSideKickLuvah (name changed to protect the innocent), his friendly neighborhood T-Mobile store informed him not only that the Sidekick 3 will be out this December, but that it'll be Bluetooth-enabled as well as EDGE-enabled (Yay!), and that it'll run WINDOWS MOBILE(WTF?!). Here's his email, with a few names changed so that nobody gets fired (The name changes are fairly obvious, as you'll see).

Hello, my name is SuperSidekickLuvah and I happen to be browsing for TMobiles Sidekick3. I came across ur site and i just wanted to share some info. I cancelled my Sprint service for this reason, Sidekick 3. I was told 2 months ago at the T-Mobile store inside the Montebello Town Center Mall located in Montebello, California. I was planning on hooking up a phone but they mention i should wait for Sidekick 3 launch. I ask when was this going to happen and they said december but most likely January. I happen to call today and 3 employees updated me on the S.K.3 Princess Peach, Luigi, and i forgot the opther employees name mention a few things about it. It runs on Windows. It has Bluetooth Tech. and Edge Tech. Since 2 months have past since i ask about its realising date i ask again and they said it is going to come out on the week or weekend of THANKSGIVING! Pretty exciting. They mention it is slightly smaller and the screen goes up, they never mention it flips up, i should have ask, I will. I wasnt planning on doing this but i feel like i have to share the excitement. Its weird though, i called customer to see if they knew more, but the girl that was helping me had no clue. But, she told me about Sidekick 2 special Edition. One is black and another one is pink. I told her I havent heard anything about Sidekick 2 Special Edition. Then i happen to call another tmobile store and they also knew nothing about Sidekick 3. So, it does remain a mystery. I am PRAYING it comes out that soon cause i havea no cell phone cause i really want to own that cell phone. Well, i will talk to more tmobile reps. to see what they say, hope to keep in touch, maybe ur able to post this up or share it, see ya.


Uh, wow. Well we already knew about the Sidekick 2 Special Editions (the Juicy Couture and Mr. Cartoon models, respectively), but this whole thing about the Sidekick 3 running Windows is just shocking. WTF is this about? Is it like a Pocket PC wannabe? Will there be a hidden stylus? Inquiring minds need to know! I guess we'll have to wait until December to find out, unless one of us manages to get onto that "private list."
