Start-up nears launch for Hiptop handheld
Posted: 17-Apr-2002 [Source: CNET]

[FCC approves selling of Danger's Hipton handheld in US.]

by Ian Fried -- "According to documents filed with the regulatory agency, the device uses America Online's instant messaging (news - web sites) software and appears to be connected to networks run by T-Mobile. T-Mobile, which is owned by Deutsche Telekom, operates in the United States under the name VoiceStream. However, the company is in the process of adopting the T-Mobile name in the United States. The FCC (news - web sites)'s approval came Thursday.

The Hiptop has received much attention at trade shows such as the recent PC Forum and Consumer Electronics Show, but when the device would arrive has been a question mark.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company had hoped to have the device out last fall but has pushed back the launch. More recently the company said it expects devices to begin shipping in late spring.

Danger has not said which carriers will market the device, which can browse the Web, send and receive e-mail, and make phone calls. The unit, which has a screen that flips up to reveal a small keyboard, also has traditional organizer features such as a calendar and to-do list; and that information can be stored on the Web as well as on the device."
