Danger Sidekick IIAccording to an MSNBC article the Sidekick II GSM smartphone will be available from T-Mobile this fall:

Today, T-Mobile is unveiling the Sidekick II PV-100. It?s actually the third device in the series (the first had a black and white screen, the most recent has a color one) but they can get away with the new name because Danger has pulled off a complete redesign: The new Sidekick is improved in almost every way possible.
The device is thinner than ever, 5.1 by 2.6 by 0.9 inches, and it weighs just 6.5 ounces. It?s also a little longer and wider than before thanks to a new two-way cellular radio and antenna inside for a better phone call experience. (As with all T-Mobile phones, the Sidekick II uses GSM/GPRS technology.)

The major bummers for Mac users: no Bluetooth and still no third party syncing solution.
