Features remain the same as the original Sidekick 3. There is one model designed by both Lifted Research Group (green) and Diane von Furstenberg (black).

Features of the Sidekick 3 include:

  • IM (AIM/Yahoo/MSN)
  • MP3 player with suport for stereo headset
  • miniSD card slot
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • EDGE high-speed data

The new Sidekick models go on sale in store and online starting on October 30th. With a 2-year contract the devices will sell for $345. That's a slight premium over the original Sidekick 3 which is currently selling for $299 online.
