T-Mobile Sidekick iD

T-Mobile this morning ended a tense wait by unveiling the Sidekick iD, Danger's first budget messenger. The release confirms virtually all of the carrier's earlier leaks and drops the Bluetooth, camera, and removable storage for the sake of price. In return, the iD gains its namesake personalization: owners can quickly swap out colored panels to give the device its own feel. It also keeps all of the messaging features that helped earlier versions, including chat through AIM, Windows Live, or Yahoo with as many as ten simultaneous conversations. A full HTML browser and the trackball control first seen with the Sidekick 3 are also part of the design.

Shipping only through T-Mobile in the US, the Sidekick iD will ship for the anticipated $100 with a two-year contract and will have myFaves support for unlimited calling to friends with the relevant plan. It should be available online and in shops on April 25th. Click through for a complete photo.
