Sidekick "Gekko" an iD replacement?

updated 10:15 am EDT, Fri May 2, 2008

Sidekick Gekko Details

An upcoming T-Mobile Sidekick codenamed the Gekko is actually an advanced replacement for the basic Sidekick iD, says a reported leak from TmoNews. The messaging slider will see a major upgrade that adds a 2-megapixel camera with a video capture mode and will incorporate a unique video sharing feature, though the alleged source says its details are unknown. Proper web browsing will also be available and cover a perceived flaw with the iD, the tip adds.

Like the iD, the Gekko will also be customizable, according to the source. However, this may not necessarily involve removable color plates similar to those for the now discontinued iD. The report now claims that just the one Sidekick update will be available in the summer and should ship on July 30th, with an unspecified second new model showing up only late in the year.
