Danger Hiptop to Be Released by T-Mobile / VoiceStream

In last week's Personal Technology column in The Wall Street Journal, Walter Mossberg reviews the T-Mobile Sidekick, a new mobile Internet / mobile phone device designed by Danger, Inc.. This is a mobile device that emphasizes Internet connectivity over telephony. As such, it's focus is different that The Handspring Treo.

The T-Mobile Sidekick is also aimed at consumers. Mossberg says, "With consumers in mind, the monthly fee for the Sidekick will be just $39.99 for unlimited data usage over a high-speed, always-on GPRS network. That's all the Web surfing, e-mail, and instant messaging you want."

The product is expected to be available in October. It will be interesting to see how it is promoted and what the market reaction will be. T-Mobile may be the smallest nationwide mobile telephone carrier, but it's nothing if not aggressive in bringing new devices on to its network.
