Sidekick Slide in October

In an unexpected move, the Danger/Motorola produced Sidekick Slide -- formerly known as the Zante -- has been confirmed as launching in October, but not necessarily in the United States. The first mention of the product can be found on the T-Mobile UK website, where it is described as having "full" Internet access, and being suited to mobile blogging. Traditionally, Sidekicks have been a flagship product of T-Mobile US, where they have sometimes had official and unofficial celebrity endorsements.

The Slide has so far been confirmed has having a 1.3-megapixel camera, as well as connection options including EDGE and Bluetooth. The phone is also expected to play AAC, MP3 and WMA files, stored on miniSD cards that hold up to 2GB. The primary feature is an offset QWERTY keyboard designed to be more ergonomic than past Sidekicks. American pricing was last anticipated to be $269. [via Boy Genius Report]
