Special Edition Sidekick 3
More special edition phones were unveiled on Friday, this time through the US division of T-Mobile. The company today said it would release two new versions of its Sidekick 3 messenger phone for more style-conscious subscribers. One of these is influenced by the urban clothing shop Lifted Research Group, whose unique Sidekick model takes on a green shell and keyboard with a tree pattern around the screen edge.
For more feminine T-Mobile users, a version created by fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg will also ship at the same time. This version is all black save for bright red lipstick kisses around the bezel and a pink number pad. Both it and the LRG edition will be available for pre-order on October 30th and will likely match the $350 price of the regular Sidekick 3. Large photos of both versions can be found after the jump.
