Two new Sidekicks due for T-Mobile in summer?

updated 01:45 pm EDT, Mon April 28, 2008

New T-Mo Sidekicks Soon

T-Mobile will carry two new Sidekick messaging phones this summer, according to an apparent leak from TmoNews. Danger and at least one of its partners will release a mystery device nicknamed the "Gekko" on July 27th; a second known as the "Aspen" will follow shortly afterwards on the 30th. Details of the devices are unknown, though the possibility exists that the phones will either be special editions of existing models with new artwork in addition to possible replacement models.

The release of new Sidekicks with the US carrier would come too soon to be affected by Microsoft's buyout of Danger, which will see the smaller company folded into Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices branch and likely produce new software for Windows Mobile. Neither company has said if or when the Microsoft acquisition will affect independent Sidekick launches, though the hardware itself is made by companies such as Motorola and Sharp.
