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.
