UShopWireless taking preorders for Sidekick 3

Some more reader submitted info:

Since I’ve been recieving AWESOME news from you guys. I figure it is time
for me to contribute. Venicom is a vendor that does promotions for certain members. Since I work for a large company, we get promos all the time. I tried to get the 8700g through them, but decided to stick with sk2 for a while–since blackberries are really trash (expensive services). Anyway. When I called, they of course said they were out of the sk2. The reason being is that within 4-6 weeks they expect to put the sk3 out. They are even taking pre-orders.
also they dont know the price yet….since t-mobile hasnt released that officially. They say it will be around 449.00-500.00 in their estimation. DANG. thats super expensive.
Hope that was relevant and groundbreaking. *wink*

We did some digging on Venicom, since we had not heard of them prior to this email. They run UShopWireless which does have some great deals on phones, including the Sidekick 2. We called them up and inquired about the pre-orders. Here’s what the rep we spoke with said:

They ARE taking pre-orders for the Sidekick 3
While they did not have an official release date, He said it’s coming out in the next 3-4 weeks, and this was confirmed with T-Mobile
Their price will be $200 after a $100 rebate. That’s $300 up front, and then a $100 rebate
He refused to give the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price)
He refused to confirm the number of Sidekick 3s that they would be getting initially
When asked why they were taking preorders for a phone that wasn’t even officially announced, he replied that TMobile is about to start their marketing push.

    I just called to pre-order the phone and was told that they were not even taking orders for it yet. They said that they don’t even have a promotional code for it. :-/
