T-Mobile Debuts Limited Edition T-Mobile Sidekicks

T-Mobile has partnered with fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and streetwear giant Lifted Research Group to create the latest limited edition T-Mobile Sidekick devices. As the T-Mobile Sidekick continues to redefine the way people communicate, the latest limited edition devices will change the way people view communications literally. The redefining makeovers were orchestrated by two of today's hottest and most authentic names Diane von Furstenberg and Lifted Research Group. Packed with the same great technology features as the T-Mobile Sidekick 3, the new limited edition T-Mobile Sidekicks will be available beginning Oct. 30.

Diane von Furstenberg made fashion history with her signature jersey wrap dresses. Today, the Diane von Furstenberg brand is internationally recognizable. Exuding a free-spirited independence and straightforward style, the Diane von Furstenberg Sidekick from T-Mobile is dressed in sleek black and features Diane's signature hot-pink lips. Lifted Research Groups' slogan is simple, "underground inventive, overground effective." "Underground inventive" meaning: how something starts out, the beginning, the roots. "Overground effective" meaning: what happens when those roots are cultivated and become strong. L-R-G is the first company to bridge the gap between the skateboarding and urban communities. With an eye toward self-expression, the Lifted Research Group Sidekick from T-Mobile is hidden within the traditional baby tree camouflage and customized with L-R-G's iconic imagery.

The T-Mobile Sidekick 3 provides a variety of communications options, including phone capabilities, built-in support for three major instant messaging clients, personal e-mail, and Web browsing to communicate on your own terms with those who matter most. The limited edition T-Mobile Sidekicks pack a powerful, feature-rich punch, equipped with the same extensive feature-set as the T-Mobile Sidekick 3. In addition to using the device's voice-calling capabilities, users can stay connected at all times with instantaneous access to e-mail, instant messenger (AIM, Yahoo! Messenger and MSN Messenger), and text messaging on the full QWERTY keyboard.

Web-browsing capabilities, enhanced with EDGE technology, ensure faster downloading speeds for accessing favorite social networking Web sites and photo-sharing communities. Additional features that have made this device a hit with tastemakers and trendsetters alike include a 1.3 megapixel camera, an MP3 player, Bluetooth technology, a trackball for easier navigation, and its slimmest size ever.
