    Beautiful, big difference. But as a side note, a camra is only as good as its lighting. The LX’s camra can be pretty good with the right amount of light, but the 09’s looks all around better by default. Can’t wait till I get mines in the mail. Just preordered it today.

    As I was once told by a good photographer

    “The camera can only be as good and be learned with the eye”

    Try to figure out what does it mean. 😉

    like I said before, 90% of sidekick users are complete idiots.

    That is why they need spell check on sidekicks.

    Makes me sick as a sidekick user…. tsk tsk tsk. you kids should pay attention in school.

    When I was in school, the only cell phones were big box units the size of a lunch box

  13. YungDT Says:

    no way itz not goin 2 be 500

  14. Nicole Says:

    Not to be a complete twat, but where do you all go to school?? I went to a pretty mediocre US public school and managed to come out being able to read & write English properly.

    “Mines” is not a word unless you’re talking about “coal mines” (or something along those lines).

    The usage of “&&” kills me, too. And “ii”. And “wut” and “wud” instead of “what” and “would”.

    ((Ignore me, I work at an answering service and am sick of fixing messages taken by this one girl in particular who is CONSTANTLY doing this ****.))

    I would be willing to bet $500 that it will not be $500 for new customers on the 13th. $249.99 for a 2 year contract MAX.

    Maybe $420 to $450 for non-eligible existing customers who want to upgrade.

    He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones.

    Not for nothing but if you are going to insult the intelligence of 90% of the Sidekick population you should at least be VERY careful when you write your insult.

    Between your lack of capitalization and missing punctuation you aren’t making a compelling argument as to why you should not be included in your 90% figure.

    If you don’t like the communities members than stay out. You can still enjoy your Sidekick just fine without having to show your lack of tolerance towards groups you do not particularly care to be involved with.

    Just because I don’t enjoy let’s say Heavy Metal (as an example) because I feel they aren’t singing or playing music just yelling and hammering away at a guitar making noise doesn’t mean I need to go into that “world” if you will and tell them they suck.

    Live and let live.

    # 1. Suck a fat ONE!

    # 2. My lack of punctuation and capitalization was sacrificed in order to fire off a quick and speedy comment while I’m at work.
    Don’t compare that to the sad attempts people make at forming a sentence.

    If your confused, please refer to #1!

    I’m going to agree with you all on the topic of “piss poor” grammar around here. I asked my nephew why so many kids his age talk and type like complete idiots and his response was “it’s a trend, it’s cool”

    So sad. Things sure have changed since I graduated back in 2001. I had one of those Xpress on Nokia’s and getting caught with one was a big deal. I cannot image what it is like in schools today with EVERYONE having a phone.

  22. Mr little Says:

    I ordered my LX 2009 on May 1st right after the price drop was announced. I received a confirmation text with no order number. I was told on May 5th that my phone would not be shipped until May 13th. My guess would be that I won’t get a order number until possibly that day.

    I got my notice about 2 weeks ago like the end of April,then when I ordered my kick after midnite (the 1st)about 5 hrs later I got a txt confirming my order.Then I called TMO CC the same day and they said I’ll get mine by the 21st.Which ever not upset,it will get here when it does.

    Mr Little,your cell number is your order number to track on UPS and what you do is go to the tracking and do this 800-MYS-KLX9.You’ll prolly get a not available until then,I do too.

    Yes,though why must we harp on people’s grammer?I don’t get that?So what,people aren’t perfect or it’s how they pronounced things or the way hear it.It’s not hurting you and you’ll never meet them,so what?We’re rock stars nah nah nah nah,lol..(it’s not towards you Taylor).

    You guys don’t care about spelling, but when you try to get a job you will realize how important spelling is.

    More important than sidekicks.

    Now Crazy,I do care about spelling but not on blogs plus there’s no spellchecker on here which would help.

    I’m sure they used word perfect for their resumes and or have someone helped them.So why people must insist or insult people who doesn’t have excellent grammer?I have a friend who’s horendous at spelling but I don’t put him down for it and I’ll ask him what is he saying or I got use to it.For jobs he uses word perfect or the spell checker on sites.

    It’s a kick blog so why care and put them down for it?

    I don’t care if you use the words bleep bleep and bleep bleep and Fbleep,lol..I find it funny and I called you George Carlin in one of the blogs,lol..Where’s my damn MBLEEP FBLEEP KICK!

    Did you see in the price drop blog where I posted that someone is selling 2 kicks on Ebay?I was like WTF how?I was like ooo Crazy gonna me maddd,lol…

  29. crazyforwhat Says:

    You shouldn’t have to rely on spell check to spell “pre-sale”

    That is just sad.

    Yeah bebe I feel like buying those kicks right now…
    Where my kick at?

    Did you get 1?Noise as in shutter noise?

    It’s a 3,2,auto focus cell cam that’s a big step up from what it was and there’s still some at 1.3.If you think about it,going up that close to a newsppaer is pretty good with autofocus.Maybe a little more lighting perhaps?

    Replacing my Sammy t509s with a sidekick that’s 1.3 no flash,autofcus and a few features you can used.

    Takes pretty good pics on it and I was planning on buying the Memoir which is 8mp plus 16x digital zoom.Then I realized that’s all it was gonna be,even though it has great features to use.

    Then the kick came out giving me exactly what I need and I’m the type to hold onto my stuff for a while.So I don’t plan on buying anymore cells regardless,knowing that I know more goodies is coming to TMO.

    The kick uses a special software that I can download for free for being hearing impaired.Which is a very big thing for me anyone else like me.

    I waited and watched over the years for the kick to finally put more on it and it’s my first one.

    Unfair comparison. The old LX doesn’t even have a macro setting. Compare shots from a distance.
