T-Mobile Launches Color-Screen Sidekick Device

After months and months of rumors, T-Mobile is finally launching the color Danger Hiptop (or T-Mobile Sidekick, if you prefer). I had been looking at the T-Mobile site earlier today and it appeared as if they had removed all evidence of the Sidekick – though, I guess they were just gearing up for this launch. The color devices are expected to be in stores Friday – and come with a bit more power. No word on how the color screens impact battery life. It will also be interesting to see if there’s a big market in current Sidekick owners upgrading, or if it will mainly be new buyers. I’m also curious to see if the pricing will follow the same pattern with ever increasing rebates.
