Sidekick Info Leaks, Nothing New


Basically confirming what we have already known, a leaked memo from magenta herself all but confirms some of the specs we have been hearing on the new Sidekick LX09. We’re certainly looking forward to pricing details leaking tomorrow and we’ll have them posted as soon as we get them!

Get Ready for the New Sidekick LX

 T-Mobile is preparing to launch the thinnest Sidekick ever, with blazing fast 3G connectivity for customers to connect with friends quickly and easily.

 The new Sidekick LX will come equipped with GPS enabled Live Search, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and free bundled social networking applications including Facebook, My Space, and Twitter. Customers will also be able to watch and download You Tube videos directly from the device.


 The new Sidekick LX comes equipped with the features that customers love including a full QWERTY keyboard and an enhanced swivel screen that is larger and sharper than any other Sidekick. Additional information regarding launch dates, pricing and availability will be available on the Retail Communication Home Page on April 17.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!!

    Excellent! I wonder what the Resolution will be>>>>

  • ALEKelek

    I an definately getting it! Hopefully it supports downloadable apps. Anyone thinking sidekick app store?!

  • I don’t understand your comment about the sidekick app store? The sidekick had an app store before anyone else did.

  • Kickstar13

    Nice info. As usual David always gets the info first.

    @ALEKlelk there is already an app store for the Sidekick. Its the Download catalog.

    Keep up the good work David.

  • MFAce

    I concur with Kickstar13 and Michael.

    The Sidekick’s have always had a download catalog, ever since the SK II, I do believe.

  • mfabela

    wow..this SK packs a punch

  • hello

  • Brent

    I thought T-Mo and Facebook were enemies of some sort.

    I was going to send a tip earlier this morning too.
    I was on the phone with t-mobile all the way from 11am to around 1pm trying to get MMS to work on my t-mobile wing. I upgraded it to WM 6.1 which is the best thing i could have done to my wing it’s super smooth.

    The first representative was very helpful and i asked her about the Wing 2 and she told me what her end showed.
    She said a samsung phone a nokia phone and a new sidekick. Then she read me the memo.

  • J-Hop2o6

    so its should be around $400 w/o contract??

  • J-Hop2o6

    ^^oops… *it*

  • Queen4111

    Does it come out in May?
    Can you replace the shells on it?

  • FILA

    sounds very nice, like almost maybe a possible choice for me? I dont know, last i checked them Sidekick plans are more expensive then the G1, or was I seeing things, I think the G1 still offers more for me, but I wanna play with this when it comes out. I usually play with all T-Mo phones when they come out so I know.

  • TRobshi

    The G1 and Sidekick plans are now the same price, unless you have a grandfathered Sidekick Unlimited plan which is $15 less than the G1 feature.

  • Pedro

    No thanks. All of the lame apps they have at the download catalog have me me dislike sidekicks. I can’t WAIT to upgrade to an Android phone.
