Motorola-made Sidekick Zante revealed?

Sidekick Zante Leak

Danger hopes to revitalize its Sidekick message phones with one made by Motorola, an early but complete spec sheet reveals. The Zante will share the same basic concept of a slide-out display that exposes a keyboard but should have a slicker look reflecting Motorola's influences. Actual technical features will be closer to the high-end Sidekick 3 than the basic Sidekick ID with EDGE Internet, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and playback of AAC/MP3/WMA stored on up to a 2GB miniSD card. Battery life will be relatively long for the phone class at just short of 6 hours for nonstop voice calls, a presentation note reads.

As with every Sidekick model to date, the Zante should be picked up by T-Mobile, where it will sell for less than the Sidekick 3 at a price of $269 including a contract. A release could take place as early as the summer but has been predicted for October. [via Gizmodo]
