Ask an Appletech!

The (in)famous appletech has agreed to answer some user-submitted questions for us! For those that don’t know, appletech is one of the moderators over at the forums. He’s got his hands on a Sidekick 3 and is ready to answer your questions. We suggest keeping your questions more specific to the device and NOT “How much does it cost? Where’s my upgrade plan? etc.”

We’ll take some of the best and most commonly asked questions and send them his way when we have a good amount.

If you have a question to submit, send it here. Please keep the ASK: in the subject line so we don’t overlook your email. We’re looking forward to putting some of the rumors to rest, so… what do you really want to know?

    forget a question i just want one

  3. joeblow08 Says:

    I think everyone is clear on the specs but what is blurry is the exact pricing and upgrade deals. Is it really going to be 300 with 2yr, 350 with 1yr and 400 with none?

  4. R Kritikal Says:

    $250-$450 it dont matter to me im gettin one, the price is the least of my worries to be honest

    1. Tethering? Never? Why not?

    2. Music via Bluetooth?

    3. Will additional (downloadable) apps accompany the Sidekick 3 launch?

    4. Is Danger’s server capacity prepared for a doubling of data demand? An overwhelmed Danger backend would make EDGE irrelevant.

    5. Has there been discussion of a business-level hiptop?

    6. What was the logic behind the switch to hard plastic keys? Reviews have been mixed, though certainly not all negative.

    7. Do you like your job?

    Out of curiousity, what do you mean by tethering, macfreak?

    And in response to your sixth question, personally, on my Sidekick II the rubber keyboard is no longer secured except for on the very sides. I can easily lift up the pad to see underneath it, and can see the light under it. Rather annoying, though I suppose it’s no real damange…
