    I picked up a T-Mobile Sidekick this week and wow this is one cool gadget! PDA/Cell Phone/Web browser/AIM/Email w/POPmail/camera(ok the camera sucks) and games with a 2.6 in greyscale flip screen and qwerty thumb board, all for $199 after $50 rebate!

    It is manufactured by www.danger.com

    I will most likely leave my Visor at home now, but keep it to use my Massage module.

    So what are you going to do with all of your Palm apps?

    I really don't have any "must have" Palm apps. to worry about. For me my main use of my Visor has been: address book,reminders,appointments,calendar, jot a note and to do lists. And when I went out of town I used the 33.6 modem module to check email. The one app. I did use was "Noah Lite" dictionary, but now I have web access with the SideKick. So for me there is nothing keeping me in the Palm OS world.

    From what I've heard the PC integration is horrible. Without the ability to sync with Outlook the device is a no-go for me. Too bad because it looks really cool!

    i think they currently use a type of inttellisync - syncs outlook with their web home page. the web page and sidekick sync with eachother automatically. the thing does have memory for upgrades, I bet the color version will be some serious competition for our beloved treos. see www.dangerinfo.com for some good info ( looks almost like they copied tc.com!)

    I exported my Palm contacts and uploaded them to the custom t-mobile web page. Any data on my sidekick is automatically synced with the t-mobile web site and vise versa, this even includes photos taken with the camera module. The sidekick does come with a USB cable, but it is only used to restore the device if needed. All syncing is done via the t-mobile network, including software updates. Like Palm devices, you do not NEED a computer to use one. But yes I can see if you are updating your contacts etc. having the ability to do a Hotsync would be nice. I'm hoping they update it to work with iSync from Apple.

    This is from dangers web site FAQ's:

    Q. Will the hiptop device sync with my existing PIM solution?
    A. Initially, the hiptop device will provide for importing of contacts from most PIM applications. Danger has announced developer relationships with several synchronization partners and expects their solutions to be available in early 2003.

    Well this device is great for people like you..and maybe teens and tweens. Its useless for power users like myself. I would rather get a Windows ..err I mean PocketPC phone than this little gadget.

    Just like the GPRS upgrade for Treos was available in Q2 2002?
