MIC…KEY….MER…CU…RY. Yep, that stinking song is gonna be stuck in my head all day long now. NASA’s Messenger probe went into orbit around Mercury last March and has shot over 100,000 images of the planet since its mission began.
I first told you about the Xbox 360 Instant Messenger keypad way back in April. For months, the device has been nowhere to be found, and my fingers have gone numb attempting to reply to IM conversations while I’m trying to play Bioshock.
Well the good news is that Microsoft has confirmed that the device will be hitting stores next week, on or about September 4th.
Thanks to a leaked rebate form, we now know exactly what the new Sidekick ID messaging device looks like.
From the look of these images, the new model will come in several bright, candy colored finishes which should appeal to the teen market.
