So, it finally happened – T-Mobile has just announced the long-rumored Sidekick LX
(2009). As rumored
, the first 3G-enabled Sidekick comes bundled with the must-have social applications, such as MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and Photobucket. The new phone is also promoted as the thinnest Sidekick ever, but what really appeals to us is its larger screen, now measuring at 3.2
inches, with a resolution of 854x480 pixels and 65k colors. Wonder how you would take the images that you’ll later share with friends and family? Of course, with the 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera, equipped with a flash. Specs-wise, it is okay, but we hope that the quality will also be up to grade.
The new Sidekick LX is a quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and a tri-band UMTS phone, with frequencies that seem to support T-Mobile USA 3G, as well as European 3G. What is too cool, however, is that there is a countdown timer on the official Sidekick web page, estimating the time remaining to its release. The scheduled date is May 13
, but those who choose to preorder it by April 30 will be able to get it before the official release.T-Mobile Sidekick LX Specifications
