More Pictures and Info on the Sidekick Slide

Sidekick Slide

More renderings of the possible Sidekick Slide / Zante have surfaced as well as an image with some stats. While the first two are most definitely renderings, the specification sheet is somewhat suspicious. Poor graphics, and misspelled words like “Mlini” and “catalogue” (it’s Download Catalog on the Sidekick 3 devices). And if they’re going for form factors, one would think they would opt for microSD as opposed to miniSD. And if this is a sheet for T-Mobile (as it has the T-Mobile phone people) why is it called the Zante and not the Sidekick Slide? If it’s not for T-Mobile, why is it using the T-Mobile phone splash screen and not Danger’s internal splash screen? We’re a little skeptical of the source, although a large part of the information looks to be correct. Here are the specs from the image:

      note pics show 2 DIFFERENT keyboard styloes. 1 with an offset standard like a normal keyboard (and all prev SK models) and 1 with lined up rows and columns.

      Hope traditional version wins out, not sure if my digits can learn a new trick!!!

      yeah the top pic shows it with a straight up and down keyboard and with a D-pad and the spec sheet shows it was the slanted Sidekick keyboard and with no D-Pad. hoping it keeps the slanted Sidekick keyboard but i dont like the slider. can’t top the rotating screen

      The first picture looks prety authentic, as well as the second. But the third picture looks sus, because it doesn’t look anything like the first 2 pictures. If these are just hox pictures they are prety good considering the detail put into it.

      I’m curious, why doesn’t the actual Sidekick Slide look like the first two pictures above? Oh well… It doesn’t matter. (I still like the Slide! :-))
