Danger to launch Sidekick III

Danger, the little handset maker that could, is set to commercially launch its Sidekick III handset to T-Mobile subscribers on June 28 and to other consumers on July 10. The device is retailed at $299 with a two-year contract, $349 with a one-year contract and $399 with a prepaid service plan. Those prices reportedly include the cost of any of T-Mobile's voice plans plus an additional $20 per month for an unlimited data plan. Danger sells the handsets under the brand Hiptop for wireless carriers other than T-Mobile, but T-Mobile sales account for much of Danger's revenue. Sharp and other manufacturers helped Danger make the handset.
