Wireless service developer Danger is working with Canadian carrier Microcell to bring a device based on the hiptop design to subscribers. Wireless service developer Danger announced Wednesday it has signed an exclusive agreement with Canadian carrier Microcell Solutions to bring a device based on the Danger hiptop device design. Microcell will sell the device starting in the fall, and it will run on the carrier's GSM/GPRS (Global System for Mobile Communications/General Packet Radio Service).
The device will be branded Fido and will offer Canadian subscribers an all-in-one device for accessing the Internet, e-mail, AOL Instant Messenger, a digital camera and voice calls. Microcell is the third carrier in North America to use Danger's hiptop design. The others include T-Mobile USA and Triton PCS.
