We received the following email from a reader:
Hi, this is a message confirming a post on your website about SK Promo material being released. I am with T-Mobile on 170 Broadway, New York City, NY. We have recently received what we think is the same Outsource sheet that your source in Los Angeles has received. A new section on our delivery sheet was added in our last bimonthly outsource:
UI/DANGER HIPTOP DATA DEVICE/PROMO
CC/12×12p ITEM:055261812 [BD: TMO black pink]
CP/16×12pback ITEM: 055382733 [no BD]
CP/20×20cback ITEM: This item is not yet listed. Check 06/06 Listings for more information.
This (promo) material is now available for outsource delivery beginning JUNE 06 06. Please select delivery carrier by custom to your division’s preference.
This was printed at the bottom of our outsource delivery sheet which we receive bimonthly. Let me explain it to you. UI/DANGER HIPTOP DATA DEVICE/PROMO – UI is a reference code to “new material” which is now available. DANGER HIPTOP DATA DEVICE, speaks for it’s self – but we usually would receive something similar with UI/DANGER HIPTOP SIDEKICK 2/PROMO, for the Sidekick 2. We are no longer ordering Sidekick 2 Promo materials. Because it simply says HIPTOP DATA DEVICE, we would assume that this would be the Sidekick 3’s promo material, as if it were the Sidekick 2 it would clearly state so, as well as the fact that the Sidekick 2 has been discontinued, we also have reason to believe that that the actual device will be available on the 3rd or 4th of July, which is probably what the other dealer/manager has come to believe.
This information, although it might sound “classified”, is actually quite easy to find. Most T-mobile dealers/managers now beleive the release date will be June 3rd or 4th.
Hope I could help.
