Danger Sidekick ID

Danger is creating a messaging-focused version of the Sidekick phone for T-Mobile, according to new details. To be called the Sidekick ID, the device will drop hardware unrelated to its core abilities: Bluetooth, a digital camera, and the microSD card slot used to store music and images will disappear for the sake of pricing.

The ID will still maintain much of the top-end Sidekick 3's advancements, the source says. Beyond the version 3's trackball, the budget Sidekick should have improved software and will be preloaded with T-Mobile's myFaves for reaching favorite contacts. Crucially, the price should be half that of the full Sidekick, shipping for $150 with a two-year plan when it becomes available in the spring. The full image is available after the jump.
