[Canada's Fido launches the hiptop2 (US version is Sidekick II) from Danger.]
Montreal -- Fido today announced the exclusive Canadian launch of the hiptop(TM)2 from Danger, Inc. Along with its new sleeker look comes new ways to personalize the all-in-one device. Equipped with its own on-line Catalog accessible from the main menu, the hiptop2 provides quick and easy access to ringtones and game downloads. Users can choose a TV theme or a clip from their favourite hit song taken from the original recording to create a unique ringtone. There is even a selection of famous quotes and animal sounds to tailor the Fido hiptop2 to suit all individual styles.
The hiptop2 combines camera, Internet, e-mail, organizer and phone all in one device. For those who are busy juggling school or work and a busy social calendar, the hiptop2 easily synchronizes with a PC to check calendars and contacts from the office, campus, or gym. The small business owner has access to HTML Web sites and the ability to open and view files in a multitude of popular formats, including JPEG, Word and PDF-all on the large colour screen. Accessing and replying to messages is simple with the QWERTY keyboard and ergonomic design.
The hiptop2 retains many of the popular design features from the previous version, such as the large swivel-up screen, in a new design that is 25% slimmer than the original. It also has added features and functions such as a larger memory, integrated camera with flash, and enhanced phone quality and battery life.
The Danger hiptop2 is now available at Fido(R) locations across Canada and from selected retail partners and is priced at $200 with a Fido Agreement. Customers can add the hiptop data option at $20 per month to their airtime package and enjoy unlimited surfing, chatting and e-mail.
