Danger to Release Color Version of HipTop in Europe

Guy Kewney reports that Danger is rolling out a color version of its HipTop mobile device in Europe. It will be interesting to see how well this device sells through to end users.

One of the more interesting revelations in this article is that Danger CEO Hank Nothhaft says, "{The design of the HipTop} grew out of the WebTV project, which the founders of Danger sold to Microsoft, and then moved on to do this."

On a related note, there's a pretty nice review of the U.S. version of the HipTop (called the T-Mobile Sidekick) over on Geek.com. It's got some excellent pictures of the device and a detailed description of a user's experience.
