Sidekick Slide Leak

Danger's Motorola-produced Zante is a working device and has been given a different name for its shipping form, a new photo and accompanying details show. Now rechristened the Sidekick Slide, the horizontal slider includes slight differences from the concept images leaked in the past and includes an offset, more ergonomic keyboard as well as larger call answer and ending buttons to prevent accidental hits. Other features such as EDGE and the 1.3-megapixel camera are hidden, though the on-screen graphic appears to confirm Bluetooth through a small icon in the menu bar.

Crucially, the presence of T-Mobile branding and a functional T-Mobile interface on the device indicates that the Slide's release is on track for its predicted October launch. Recent predictions that the messaging phone will sell for $269 ($30 less than the similarly-featured Sidekick 3) remain unchanged. [via BGR]
