CrunchGear posted about the latest Sidekick Zante/Slide info and are a bit cautious about believing it. We’re also a bit skeptical over here. Here are some reasons why we think the latest “leak” of Zante / Slide info is flawed.
The Zante on the features image is a bad photoshop. Why would you put a black phone on a black background? And even so, why not outline it in white rather than leftover garbage from a select tool? However the actual Zante image itself is something new. I just find it hard to believe that any “official doc” like this would be so poorly done.
What is the difference between a Feature and an Enabler? Why so much repetition in specifications? Are you just trying to take up space?
The Zante will use microSD not “Mlini SD”
The Zante has previously been reported as the Q700, not the Q900.
All the info has been previously leaked in some form already or easily assumed. It’s easy to gather it all and photoshop it together.
Why is it spelled “Catalogue” and not “Catalog” like it is on the Sidekick devices?
The screen on the Zante is an image of Danger OS 3.0, not 4.0 like the URL for the user manual placeholder on Danger’s site indicates.
Why in the world would you measure size in cc instead of inches or millimeters?
There is talk of the Zante having incredible battery life, but the battery is only 1130mAh, whereas the Sidekick 3’s current battery is 1500mAh and only gets about a day of usage. Can we really believe that they dropped the power consumption that much to get a rumoured 5.9hrs of talk time?
No mention of the feature of OS OTAs? This is one of the features that Danger has that most other phones don’t.
“WMA.2.5mm Audio” ? – Is this a new codec or did someone not hit return to create a new bullet point about the size of the headphone port?
All in all, I think some of this info is right, some of it is wrong, and some of it is old. Perhaps the person leaking this does have access to some info, but I don’t think this came from Danger or Motorola. Anyone else want to point out other fun facts about this latest “leak”?
