They look kind of disappointing: did they add any new features at all? : /

I'm not really sure... I'll try to ask my uncle about them and find out.

Oooo, let's get the inside story from Emily!! :P
I remember he was asking you what Deaf/hh people would like to see in the new sk awhile back. From what I've read, it looks like this one has more visual alert options, at least.

Yeah, I know they had more visual alerts in the works - kind of like the different vibrations you can have, but different light patterns instead. (At least, that's what i was told.) But I'll ask and see if there's anything specific that's special.

It doesn't look like they changed much, at least not $300 worth! I thought it was crap when I had a SK2 for 2 years and decided to get a SK3 and was still charged the full amount AND forced to extend my contract for 2 years. They'll have to really spice up things to get me to buy another $300 gadget from them.

However, do let us know if you find out any more details about the two new sidekicks. :)

Yeah, I was asking more out of curiousity than anything else. I bought my sk3 in June, I'm very happy with it and I'm not going to shell out another $300 for a gadget for awhile :)

I gave up on the SK a while ago and got a windows mobile phone... if the new SK is worth while I'll go back... but so far it doesn't look too great hehe
