Manual leak confirms Sidekick Gekko

Sidekick Gekko Manual Leak

A handful of leaked manual pages today has all but confirmed the existence of the Sidekick Gekko for T-Mobile. The discovery validates reports of basic details about the device, which includes an extra-wide LCD like that of the Sidekick LX, removable faceplates like the Sidekick iD, and a camera; the new details point to a two-megapixel camera instead of the 1.3-megapixel unit from some past versions of the messaging phone.

The documents confirm few other details, though microSD storage and video capture to the portable 3GP format are certain for the device. Most leaks still have T-Mobile carrying the Gekko as a full replacement for the iD on June 30th and may give the QWERTY-keyboard device a price close to that of the iD rather than the more expensive Sidekick 3.
