T-Mobile Sidekick 3

26 Jun


Basically the Sidekick 3 combines a phone, Web browser, e-mail manager, camera and an MP3 player all in one compact device. But of course it offers a lot more goodies than that. It comes with a 2.6-inch sliding screen under which is a comfortable QWERTY keyboard for speed typing. There is 1.3-megapixel digital camera for taking pictures, EDGE mobile connection for fast data transfers, Bluetooth 1.2 support, USB connector for synchronizing it with PC, miniSD card slot for additional memory and so on and so on…

What exactly can Sidekick 3 do?
– Easy to e-mail or IM with built-in QWERTY keyboard
– Real Web browsing of sites like MySpace, Facebook..
– Mobile phone
– Text messaging
– Continuous back-up of address book so customers never lose contacts
– Unlimited e-mail, IM, text messaging and Web browsing for less than $1/day
– Take pictures with the integrated camera. It even has a flash!
– Send pictures to friends and family via e-mail

Sidekick 3 aviability
T-Mobile Sidekick 3 will be first available in USA on June 28th in two stores and only for current customers of T-Mobile – on Madison Ave in New York and Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. Indirect dealers, i-Dealers, National Retail and VAR are going to get it on August 28th, give or take, depending on inventory. Of course if you are a celebrity, you’ll be able to get a Sidekick 3 even earlier… 😉

What’s new on the Sidekick 3?
– A sleeker, smaller design
– Bluetooth technology makes the device easier to use
– AOL, Yahoo! And MSN Instant Messaging built-in
– An MP3 music player
– Faster browsing through EDGE network
– 1 megapixel camera
– Removable battery

I wonder if we are going to see this device produced by Sharp in other countries, offered by local (not T-Mobile) mobile operators… and of course with other brand name (Sidekick 3 is a T-Mobile brand), but with the same hardware?

The prices are: $299 for a 2-year contract, $349 for a 1-year contract, and $399 for T-Mobile To Go (prepaid).

Are you feeling paranoid or that you’re being watched? The Spy Finder should be able to reveal the presence of any camera, Wired or wireless, even if the camera is powered off at the moment. The Spy Finder is just the size of a Bic Lighter and easily fits in your pocket. And the best of all is that it is very easy to use – just look through the viewfinder, press the button and any Hidden Camera should be illuminated and its position revealed…

Protect Yourself from Prying Eyes
Spy Finder is an easy-to-use Hidden Camera Detector. Simply look through the viewing port and scan any room to reveal the exact location of concealed Wireless and Wired Cameras. Use it in dressing rooms or gym locker rooms to protect yourself from prying eyes. Give your loved ones peace-of-mind knowing their privacy has not been compromised.
To scan an area, simply look through the viewing port and depress the button to activate the LEDs. Slowly scan areas where Hidden Cameras are suspected and look for bright-reflected spots. Remember, most Hidden Video Cameras use Pinhole Camera Lenses, so the spot you are looking for could be small.
If you see a suspected camera, move your vantage point slightly. If the location of the reflection moves as you move, then this is not a camera. If the location of the reflection does not move, then it is highly likely that you have discovered the optics of a Hidden Camera.

How it Works
The Spy Finder Hidden Camera Detector/Locator is the most reliable and easy to use technology on the market for confirming that your private actions are not being watched. The Spy Finder’s function is based on the principle of optical augmentation. This technical jargon refers to the phenomenon where light reflected from a focused optical system, such as a Video Camera, is reflected along the same path as the incident light. This means that if a Hidden Camera is illuminated and viewed with the Spy Finder Technology, then a strong reflection from the target camera will reveal its position to the user. The Spy Finder exploits this phenomenon by using a ring of ultra-bright LEDs arranged around a viewing port. When a user scans a room looking through the viewing port, a Hidden Camera appearing in the field of view will brightly reflect the light from the LEDs.

This one definitely sounds interesting, but I wonder how well it does it work finding hidden cameras…?

The price of the Spy Finder Hidden Camera Detector is $99
