T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 [New & Improved]

T Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 [New & Improved]

NEW MESSAGE…introducing the brand new T-Mobile Sidekick LX! The Sidekick was my first two way phone I owned, I still remember the “new message” alert and sound of the swivel when I flip open the phone. The new Sidekick LX is 3G-enabled, the high-speed web browsing with 3G support is definitely an upgrade from the old models and makes surfing more efficient. What’s a phone without the built-in support for the top social networking applications including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, you know you’re all addicted to that, I’m not going to lie I am. It also includes built-in IM clients: AOL® Instant Messenger, Windows Live and Yahoo!® Messenger, wished they added GChat as well.

The Sidekick LX also offers the largest and sharpest screen to-date for a Sidekick device, it features a 3.2-inch F-WVGA screen with high-definition LCD technology with 854×480 resolution which helps support the enhanced video capability — record and share easily with friends and family via upload to video Web sites, Bluetooth, or MMS messaging. And for all fashionistas and picture whores like myself we need a good camera on our phone, you never know who you’ll run into right? The new phone is equipped with a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash. The refined LX boasts the thinnest design of the Sidekick family while maintaining the iconic swivel screen and full QWERTY keyboard. The phone is available in carbon and orchid finishes with mood lights running horizontally across the top of the screen.

The T-Mobile Sidekick LX will be available for purchase for current customers during the pre-sale starting April 17th for $199.99 with a two-year service agreement and mail-in-rebate. The Sidekick LX will be available nationally May 13th at select T-Mobile retail stores and online at www.t-mobile.com.

I’ll be getting up close and personal with the new device at an upcoming launch party to celebrate the new T-Mobile Sidekick LX and I’ll be capturing video coverage so keep your eyes peeled. I can’t wait!
