Well, it’s been 5 months since we first found evidence of the Sidekick LX, but the day is finally upon us. Anyone out there can run to the T-Mobile store and grab a Sidekick LX of their own! (If you live in the US) Have you gotten yours? What color did you pick? The Midnight Blue or the Espresso Brown?
Along with the official press release from T-Mobile there’s also an announcement of the “T-Mobile Sidekick Video Contest” from Sidekick Nation:
In anticipation of the new devicesí launch, T-Mobile kicks off Sidekick Nation: T-Mobile Sidekick Video Contest. To enter the contest, fans across the country can create an original video, no longer than two minutes in length, which exemplifies how their Sidekick serves as their social lifeline. Videos are to be submitted on www.myspace.com/sidekicknation beginning October 2nd and no later than November 12th. On November 21st, the entries judged as finalists will be showcased on the Sidekick Nation MySpace page for community voting which will help determine the final winner who will win the ultimate grand prize: a new Sidekick LX, $10,000 and a trip to Los Angeles to attend a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! where highlights of the winning video will be aired.
