T-Mobile flaunts new Sidekick

Spiderman 3, Superman Returns; these super hero sequels are getting a little tedious, but here's one American import we're happy to see make its return. The Sidekick 3 is winging its way across the Atlantic, T-Mobile cape flapping, to show lesser endowed mobiles what it can do.Punching its way to true smartphone status it now gets an MP3 player and proper 1.3megapixel camera to overshadow the puny VGA snapper it replaces. Thankfully it hasn't lost its web browsing and push email powers with its 'special ability' trackball looking resplendent. A quick phone-box style spin also reveals its gleaming QWERTY keypad.Sadly some of these will find themselves adorned with pink sequins riding around in Paris Hilton's handbag a la her oft photographed Sidekick II. Think we'll stick with the standard black and silver.
