||Danger Hiptop II (PV-100) |
or as most know it T-Mobile Sidekick II
(edited August 04,2004) SideKick II was officially introduced today. Read out news or view the device specifications.
The wait is over. Information about Danger Hiptop II (PV-100) is finally available and PhoneArena.com is the first to bring it to you. The new device will be sold by T-Mobile under the SideKick II name. The original version had grayscale 240 x 160 pixels screen and unique at that time open-and-turn screen design. A year later, the company released an updated version Sidekick Color with TFT display and 65k colors. Like its predecessor, the Sidekick II also will sport color display with intelligent light meter which will turn backlight on and off automatically.
The original Sidekick operated in the US on 1900 MHz frequency and 900/1800 in Europe/Asia. The new SideKick II supports 900/1800/1900 frequencies combined, meaning it can be used in Americas/Europe/Asia.

Keypad-wise, there is a new directional pad, plus two new shoulder buttons (soft keys which perform different functions in different situations). As with the original devices, there is a USB port which is not used for anything but by developers as they create new device applications, ringtones, and services..
New for SideKick is the VGA (640 x 480 or 0.3 mega pixels) built-in camera with LED flash for illumination of near-by objects. Night mode and small mirror for self-portraits are also present.
