Sidekick iD – USB or Not?

UPDATE: Confirmed by John B, it does have a USB port and it’s covered up with a little bit of plastic that is easy to lose. Thanks John!

Sounds like some lines got crossed somewhere. Whether or not the Sidekick iD has a USB port is in debate. Check out the image from
Sidekick iD With USB Port
and then check out the video from Crunchgear’s John Biggs:

Hmmmmmm….. maybe there are SKiD flaps?

Thanks to exiva at HiptopHunt for pointing this out

    it will have a USB port, 3rd party developers need the USB port to test their applications, which is why the sidekick 2 had a USB port which no one knew what it was for (unless you were a developer). i should know im a developer for the sidekick.

    You’re absolutely right, guys. I had poked around in there earlier, but the flap was so flush to the device that I didn’t see it could even open. I just forced it and found the USB port. Sorry!

    And I just lost the “flap.” It’s just a little piece of plastic.

    I can confirm that if you do indeed manage to pull out the plastic flap there is a little usb port there. It’s kind of hard and I ruined some fingernails, you have to get up under the side of it and pry it up. But once it’s done it’s easier to take it on and off, unless you lose it.

    Why would they hide this though is the question? There’s no mention in the instruction manual that I can recall.
