Will this be the new Sidekick?

Will this be the new Sidekick?
Yesterday, we told you about the rumors of a new Sidekick that is said to come with 3G support, and the first proof of this is already out there in the wild. Hiptop3 has informed that it has received an image, depicting a device, named Sidekick LX 2009, as well as its specifications. It has been found in a survey about smartphones.

Judging by the specs that are listed on the image, the device is going to pack a lot of punch with its newly added 3G support and GPS receiver. In addition to this, it also has a quite large 3.2-inch display with “sharp” WVGA (854x480 pixels) resolution and a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and a flash. It looks like those of you that cannot live a day without logging into their favorite social network will also be nicely surprised, thanks to the included apps for managing Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube accounts.

We can guess what you’re thinking and yes - this whole thing about the Sidekick LX 2009 doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all. However, we surely hope that T-Mobile really has a share in it…

this device would do great if it was on a real network. but since it is doomed to go to t moslow then it will die the same fate the G1 did.

Boy you guys are as IGnorant as they come, ATT is a 2nd Class Provider not TMobile. Plus T-MOB's 3G has been Rated and Tested over and over to be Considerably Faster than ATT's SLooooooow 3G its just a Matter of Time till TMobile Buys ATT. By the way the G1 is a Success peon's.

Why would you consider that Tmobile is second rate.... because of their lack of 3G??? The only reason that's an issue is because the US Government was using their spectrum for longer than what they were supposed to. As you can see from the info of other Tmo supporter they are improving that daily. Secondly Tmo will never be bought out because they are apart of the 2nd Largest cellular provider in the WORLD. Not just the United States so please goole it before calling something second rate.

It looks a little bit thinner than the current Sidekick... Not bad though!
