    My initial thought was to wait until I could actually mess with the LX 09 in person, but now I’m thinking that I won’t be getting it and will probably be switching to a G1. I really don’t want to, I love my sidekick and have been a loyal user since 05, but the fact that it is still closed source and we will have to pay for everything, well for appz and games, since there is a crappy ringtone recorder function, but we will still have to pay for these things, and the prices are steadily increasing-this is what is going to make me switch. I don’t really care about a touchscreen, but the free ringtones, apps, games on the G1 is going to make me switch. My sister just switched to a G1, and I just set it up for her, put her music and pictures on it, downloaded games and apps for free, man it’s just better, it pains me to admit that. I have an upgrade coming up in September, but I’m probably not going to wait. I think I’m gonna go get a G1 next weekend, so I can sell my LX before the LX 09 comes. Man, I really don’t want to, but the Sidekicks are not advancing enough in comparison for phones that are out and are the same price or cheaper. The G2 not having a keyboard is a deal breaker for me as well, so I’m going to go for the G1. Man and I’m gonna have to pay $35 for data.

    My sis got the hook up on her G1 and the guy who did said that there is a touchscreen sidekick that is going to be released at the earliest in Dec of this year. I don’t know how accurate this is, but I figured I should just throw out there.
