A few more details on the latest Danger device have trickled through and hit the Giz. Remember the Sidekick RAZR X PowerPoint slides that made the rounds a while back? This could possibly be the device I’ve been waiting for, but I thought that about the Sidekick 3, too. Sidekick 4 this is not, but, rather, another ‘interim’ device (iD ring a bell) until the Real Deal Holyfield is released. The specs look fairly impressive, but it still has a long ways to go before fanbois like me will be satisfied.
•It’s called the Motorola Q700, or Zante
•September 9-11, 2007 Launch [in question, as are all unofficial release dates]
•Danger 4.0 OS
•Round keyboard keys
•Transmissive 2.4-inch, 320×240 screen
•Same 100/30 SMS message limit as previous SKs
•Same 1.3MP camera
Still no video playback and the same crappy 1.3-megapixel camera, but it’s a lot slimmer than the Sidekick 3. I’m not sure how I feel about a sliding keyboard as opposed to the swiveling keyboard the Sidekick is known for, either. I’m so confused about what my next phone will be now. It hurts my brain.
