New Sidekick clears FCC, T-Mobile 3G in tow

Sidekick 2009, Blade, Sidekick LX 2009… Call it whatever you want. The bottom line is that a handset thought to be Danger’s upcoming Sidekick redux just made its way through the FCC approval process. And by “thought to be”, we mean it is. If the Sharp PV300 manufacturer/model number combo isn’t enough for you (Sharp Sidekick model numbers start with PV), the label clearly states “Powered by Danger” which can only mean one thing — Sidekick. With that in mind, the most important takeaway from the FCC documents is without a doubt the presence of AWS 3G, the 1700 MHz spectrum 3G used by… Come on, you know this… Yes sir, T-Mobile. Rumor confirmed. So what do you think, T-Mobile folks? Shiny new Sidekick, NetBSD, 3G — you know you want it.
