Sidekick LX is Available!!

Sidekick LX

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.

No word yet on when the LX will make it overseas, but we’ll keep you posted!

    This is just a sidekick 2.9. big waste of money. the sidekick 3 hasnt even been 2 years yet, so people wasted money if u wont the extention if u had a 2 year from the sidekick 3, and really dumb with u bought with out a contract because you paid way too much for a phone with limited features, i cant wait for my contract to end and get a better phone

  2. thatsoup Says:

    I was at the store at 10 am to buy my phone, and the LX is a huge improvement from the Sidekick 2

    I got the brown one, if anyone cares.

    i got mine last night, midnight blue. it is definitely a big upgrade from the sk2. i only extended my contract 1 year and it was only $375 with tax. I love it so far, it’s so nice.

    Obviously you don’t have the device nor know the actual improvments with the Opperating System.

    Sidekick LX is definatly the best sidekick made so far. It blows the sidekick 3 away.

    Its not that big of and improvment for me to keep this phone until 2009 with a contract extemsion. Just can’t do it for that price. I’m waiting a year (when my contract runs out) to see if there is any talk of a Sidekick 4 are something like that. If there isn’t, I will have to get whatever phone that is hot a year from now.

  8. hamilton Says:

    There r so many improvments on dis fone. Da mood lyts r so hot nd a gr8 new featur. Da bigga screen is very much appritiatd 4 webcyts. Da resolution updat is very big nd makes it crestal clear. Da design of da lx looks slim nd thinner. Da design feels thinna. It was lyta. Da layout is much lyk da sidekick 2 witch I luvd. Da speaka is much louda. It can support 4 gb memory card witch is much betta den da sidekick 3s. My space makes it easier 2 use den havnt 2 use da web. It makes it fast nd a lot more manigable. Picture messagein is a very big improvment witch I’m happy about. New OS update. Its a pv250, as aspossed 2 da pv200 of da 3. It has major *** appeal. Dere r so many updates dat r very hot nd more

    I’m pretty sure this is supposed to be the equivalent of a sidekick 4. Plus, you can do a 1 year contract instead of a 2 year. It was only 376 for me to upgrade, so it’s not completely horrible. Plus since they’re releasing two phones around the same time, I doubt there will be a new one for a while.

    i got da blue one an im lovin it is a better screen dan da sdk3 is way louder an thin so i love it no dout battery is lil wak but is my fault 4 usin it alot well ima get da slide just 4 a test ima see wich 1 is better!

  12. greenpencil Says:

    why in the world does no one here speak in REAL UNDERSTANDABLE ENGLISH?!?!

    besides that. honestly, the lx really has barely NOTHING new from the sk3. what…picture texting is the only new thing actually? and the downgrade of the camera. the pictures just LOOK really nice because the screen is nice. hah. but after having my lx for a week and then picking up a sk3 to use it, it felt like i was holding an ancient phone. comparing the screens next to each other is crazy. the sk3 is so pixelated and the colors are off, the lx has such a beautiful bright true-to-life screen. the sk3 felt so bulky and fat compared to the lx. i love my lx even though i wish it had the following:
    2.0 mp camera at least???
    a daytime/nighttime function for the camera flash
    ZOOM for the camera
    video playback for websites
    video capture
    gps
    bluetooth where you can actually do something other than talk on a headset.
    what else? a lot can be done to make the phone better but its so nice and definitely is an upgrade from the sk3 just not in all the right places.

    and i dont care that i added another 2 years onto my contract, its not like it makes a difference anyway.

  13. hamilton Says:

    Dude. Da fones dat do all thos fings sux. All da features r bad qwality. Da sidekicks fo all of dere features 2 such a gr8 extent nd dey r addin more nd more features. I’m fairly sure da sidekick 4 will hav video has ppl r complainin it doesn’t. Nd wit da sidekick 3 dey relisd ppl stoppd buyin it coz of **** screen myspace suxd nd was fat so dey brought out da lx wit all dem upgrades plus sum very nice new 1s. So now wen every 1 is say video nd bluetooth I’m sure dey will add it on da 4. Plus y need bluetooth wen u get free email nd piv messagin??

  14. sdk4fiend Says:

    well i hope we really get vedio on da next sdk after da slide but i thought da lx was da sdk 4 ???

  15. hamilton Says:

    Well rumores say dat dere will styl b a 4 nd da lx is just simply da lx. But den agen dere my neva b a 4 nd da next sidekick culd b da tp den da sidekick ce. Or wateva.

  16. Treckless09 Says:

    Well i heard there was no 4…that the numbers have been dropped as of the ID…but I also hurd that the LX is a sk 3.5…i really dont care I luv it…but 4 those complaining about the sk’s…1. u dont need every sidekick that comes out…if u had the 2 ur prolly realizing it was a waist of money 2 get the 3…and 2. what the hell r u doing on a sk site talking them down…AND…with all those “extras” such as video comes a price…a price way more than $20 a month…then ppl r going 2 b complaining about the price increase….the sk is a messaging phone…Hint the big *** key bored…sure there r better phones…but every phone has a flaw…GET OVER IT…NO PHONE OR SERVICE PROVIDER IS PERFECT….EVEN THE IPHONE AND OCEAN HAVE PROBLEMS…

  17. hamilton Says:

    Exactly!!!!!!!!

  18. jigs Says:

    smh the lx is the sk4! Like the sk3’s 3.4 o.s. The sk lx is a 4.4 it shouldn’t be that difficult to figure it out. Hopefully the next sk that’s comes out a few years from now will have a 5.sumthing making it the sk5…..

  19. hamilton Says:

    If u say so. . .

  20. monajordan Says:

    I am soooooo irritated. I ordered the new sidekick on the launch date, UPS came to deliver it to my house on the 26th, well I missed the delivery so I had to go and pick it up. so around 830pm I went to UPS in the pouring rain with a 1 year old on my hip and another child holding on to my back pocket, walked in showed my ID and quickly left. I got home and opened my box and THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE BOX!!!!!! SOMEONE HAD STOLEN THE SIDEKICK! sooooo I turned around and went back to UPS in the pouring rain and went in and starting cursing and yelling about picking up a empty box. UPS stated that I needed to take my empty box back home and file a claim with UPS over the phone. OK….I did that and UPS picked the box up on Monday, the 29th. They inspected the package and then told me that I basically STOLE MY OWN PHONE!!!! now it is Oct 31st and I still have no phone and Tmobile is doing there own investigation and in the meantime I am out of 367.49 and I am at my wits end.
