After much expectation, the Sidekick II from T-Mobile, based on the Danger Hiptop design, is now official and slated for availability this fall.
The Sidekick II uses the same general design as its predecessor, with a number of evolutionary changes. The basic smartphone body measures 130 x 66 x 22 mm, 25% smaller than its predecessor, but weighs a bit more at 184 grams.
