[The T-Mobile Sidekick Slide is now available in the U.S. and is the most compact Danger powered device to date and features push e-mail, HTML Web browsing, media player and always-on internet connectivity.]
Beginning today, the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide is commercially available through T-Mobile in the U.S. Powered by Danger's software and services, the device also will be commercially available this year in Germany and the United Kingdom under the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide brand and in Australia branded as the hiptop Slide from Telstra.
The device is the most compact Danger powered device created to-date. From a volume stand point alone, it is 25% smaller than the previous generations of T-Mobile's Sidekick family. The handset features Danger's application software, which includes push e-mail, full HTML Web browsing, instant messaging, mobile phone, calendar, address book and media player, as well as a consistently updated content catalog. Additional benefits of Danger's service include always-on internet connection, automatic data back-up, and ongoing feature and user-experience improvements. Users also have the option to access their data and applications from any Web-enabled computer.
Integrated software experience
The Sidekick Slide (the high resolution QVGA display slides open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard) has been designed to provide a rich consumer messaging experience for an Internet savvy, always-on lifestyle.
The software experience is similar to other Danger powered devices. Each application runs concurrently to enable true multitasking. For example, a user can chat with up to 25 friends in instant messaging and surf the Web simultaneously. Similarly, the integration of the applications on the device translates to an elegant end user experience. With one click, phone numbers can be selected and dialed from Web pages or any text field (along with Web URLs and email addresses) and mailing addresses from the contact list can be instantly mapped on the Web - again with one click.
The software on the device is brought to life by Danger's service, which manages a secure always-on connection to the Internet and enables messages and alerts to be pushed to users in real time. The same service pre-processes Web pages and other content so that it is optimized for viewing on the handset.
