T-Mobile launch the Sidekick 3

Favoured by the likes of Paris Hilton, T-Mobile has announced an update to its iconic Sidekick device.

Simply called the Sidekick 3, the new model boasts a larger colour screen and a built-in MP3 player within the handset.

The device which focuses heavily on instant messenger and email features comes with the T-Mobile Web'n'Walk internet on the move service and a QWERTY keyboard that is revealed by swivelling the screen out of the way.

Other features include a built-in 1.3 megapixel digital camera, calendar, notes and "To Do" list easily updated and always with you, helping you stay on top of your hectic schedule. The Sidekick 3 boasts an internal memory of 64MB Flash ROM and an external MiniSD card slot (with a 64MB Mini SD card included).

Available in December 2006, pricing will be dependent on price plan.
