Sidekick ID Accident
The Sidekick ID has been unintentionally revealed at the CTIA phone expo, an observant photographer has revealed. Cellphone producer UTStarcom, which produces the Sidekick line on behalf of Danger and T-Mobile, had all but confirmed the device by posting full-size advertising at its show booth, only realizing its error a day later when it spray-painted the ID-specific parts of the unannounced handheld.
The leak validates earlier claims about the device, which is said to strip some secondary features from the current high-end Sidekick 3 to roughly halve the price. Neither Danger, T-Mobile, nor UTStarcom has commented on the leak. Click through for a larger image. [via Gizmodo]
