    Very nice phone…as I look at the image of the apps I guess that is one thing that hasn’t changed. Glad they added or changed it so you can make your own ringtones though.

    Like so far I would really have to play around with the phone 1st..this is the one I won’t pre-order but rather would like to go into a store and actually play around with it.

    And that is why I wanna see the phone 1st instead of pre-ordering it…although I just got my white G1…I have always loved sidekicks..but this one has really needs to be in my hands 1st so I can examine it. LOL.

  5. joe Says:

    bunny, if I was you I would stay with the G1 because it has the same features as the LX09, PLUS on the G1 you can download free apps and games, and you have a touchscreen option.

  6. omie Says:

    where are the mood lights???..are they on the keyboard???

    Hey hiptop3, engadget has their own review too. Its just a quick review but there review alone is making me think that I need to pull some extra shift at work so I can buy this.

    how ironic!! i just got my white g1 also like about a week ago.
    I love sidekicks dont get me wrong, but i just wanted something different.
    but still in all, this device looks really nice. just as you said, i would aslo have to play around with this 1st, before jumping ship and even considering to buy it……but so far the hardware looks pretty sickk.

  11. Steph Says:

    So what color is everyone going with? I’m leaning towards black but I want to get a better look at the purple one in a store first.

    And there’s no word yet on an Australian release date?

  12. meme Says:

    Honestly, I hate to say this but I am not THAT impressed. But I feel like I am locked into this price so I will more than likely upgrade to the new sidekick. I don’t want to pay anymore than I have to. I just wish it had more of what we REALLY wanted. I was kind of hoping for a touch screen sidekick or something. I think I might wait a couple of more months and see if those rumors were true about the “2 other” sidekicks.

  13. chanty Says:

    one of the posts by hitop3 said we won`t have to upgrade to $35/monthly. but i want the orchid now ! i cant wait til may 13. if u preorder it you`ll get it no later than may 12. lmao. i was about to preorder mine now but it`s true. i wanna hold it &. look thru it first.

  14. Steph Says:

    Oh and for anyone still looking for the mood lights I’m pretty sure you can see them in this photo:

  15. crazyforiphone Says:

    I just bought 1 for myself, and the pink/purple for my wife.

    i will test them out, But I’m not very impressed.

    I see myself returning after 14 days.

  16. bill Says:

    so if u currently have a tmobile contract with another phone u cannot get the $199.99 with another 2 year contract seperately? would if i was trying to get this phone for my girl on a whole seperate contract and im already with tmobile?

  17. ICON Says:

    Well, it sounds fantastic (Engadget says a strudy build, which is something you always have to worry about), but if I’m not eligible for the $200 upgrade, I’m going to sadly have to pass for now 🙁 $400+ is very rich for my blood.

    On the bright side, the screen looks redonkulously beautiful! And, if the previous hiptop3 post is correct and we DO get grand-fathered in, this is indeed a good day!

    However, as pointed out by someone else, everyone who bought the LX at launch (yeah, that’d be me too), is probably screwed for upgrading. Sigh…

  18. Phlaymz Says:

    So do we have to pay for the community apps like how we have to pay a recurring fee for myspace? Or are they free?

    Is the text limit still 100?

    The text limit is my only beef with sidekicks lol that and the note limits. Other than that they are cool phones.

  19. T-MO Man Says:

    how many texts can it hold?!!?! somebody please tell me more then 100!!!!!

  20. j hooder Says:

    I hope theme architect comes out with style editor, cuz it looks like the header bar is transparent >.<

  21. BLAH Says:

    its soo nice.
    LMAO when i saw the pic that said “buffering” i actually waited for a second, expecting something to happen
    then i was like oooo wow.

    just posted the mood light pic .
    customers with the 19.99 plan get to keep it.
    and the media player remains the same .
    not sure about aim .

    my bad .
    go to phonescoop.com
    then type in sidekick LX 2009 to see the real moodlight pics .
    i cant post the url .

  26. meme Says:

    I think the most addressed concern now is the text messaging issue. I hope this does get addressed soon and we find out if we will have threaded text messaging on the new sidekick.

  27. Shine Says:

    Now if T-Mobile could just get rid of their roaming i would be all set!

  28. Jube Says:

    it would be great if Danger add more apps to the catalog like ” Skype, Shazam and more …..

  29. InFLOential Says:

    I just pre-ordered mine, and i’m am super excited!!!! AHHHH!!!! I have always had a Sidekick now i have the Slide. So i’m just waiting for this one.

    the text limit is 100 . (via sidekick.com forums)
    and there is no threaded text . (via pbd.com)

  31. Pablo Says:

    Please tell me they expand email storage. 6 mbs or 12 whatever it is, is just not enought. I wish we could expand it from micro sd’s. O well.

  32. Adrian Says:

    Wow. MAJOR dissapointment. It looks JUST like the 08, cheap as hell.
    Sorry T-Mobile but this is an epic fail! I’ll just switch over to AT&T and get an iPhone like I was planning.

  33. Anonymous Says:

    Total garbage! comes with a ONE GB sd card when most phones comes with 4 or 8? How cheap!!! Plus with phones like android, Blackberries, and iphone, how can this compete? cant install apps freely or even ringtones. BIG disappointment but not surprised at all. This is strictly for Jr High Skoolerz and kids or have to ask mom and dad lol

    SD Cards are super cheap! You can grab an 8gb for $20: http://www.sidekickshopper.com/SidekickLX2009/Accessories/MemoryCards

    I’m subscribed to that lady in that video they are watching here http://www.hiptop3.com/gallery/sidekick-lx-2009-engadget/sidekick-lx-2009-hands-on-11.jpg
    xD

  36. justin Says:

    It doesn’t look exactly like the 08 it looks a hell of a lot better, It doesn’t look like its cheap like the 08 either, The 08 was a waste of a sidekick becaue it had everything that the Lx had, it was actually worse, This sidekick is a huge step up from the other ones and can compete with all the other phones, Just because it doesn’t have free apps doesn’t mean its a bad phone , it isn’t trying to be the G1 and iphone , if you don’t like it then get off the site and stop posting your stupid comments and runing the phone for everyone else

    The Moodlights are on a slit on the bottom of the screen

    and there are light alerts on the bottom and top of the keyboard. WICKED!

  40. Jaylen Says:

    I think it would’ve been even sexier if the keyboard had individual buttons like on the SK3. That would’ve been just … awesome

  41. rahrah24 Says:

    Do you think the twitter and youtube app will be introduced into the catalog for current sidekick owners like the lx and 08. Seeing as how we already have the microsoft live search which was said to be available for the 09.

  42. firstxavenger Says:

    i cant upgrade till next year around this time, but hey by then there will be another one out. seeing as they are pumping them out every year, im hoping for a better sidekick 08 because i have the lx and its just too damn big

    No!

    LX runs on EDGE so no youtube.

    But they could add twitter to the catalog.

  44. rahrah24 Says:

    Aww that sucks!! But I guess I can wait until my upgrade nextyear around this time and get the newer version of the 09. But the g2 and wing2 will be out by then it will be a really hard decision.

    I don’t understand how people can still be so ignorant as to call them “moon lights”, and to actually care if they’re there or not. All they do is consume battery power.

  46. rahrah24 Says:

    That’s so true it kills battery power and your gonna use the media player a lot now with the youtube application and plenty more room for recording your battery will need to be charged a lot more. So why even bother with mood lights.

  47. D3m0 in RI Says:

    THIS ***** PHONE IS COOL BUT IT AINT DAT COOL!! DA G1 IS SHITTING ON THIS NEW SK. DEFINITELY AINT WORTH CLOSE TO 500!!!!!!!!! i had every SK THERE WAS THEN WENT TO DA G1, BUT FOR DAT PRICE AND DA WAY DA ECONOMY IS?!?! THEY ARE SOUPED!!!! I’LL BUY IT FROM DA STREETS WHEN SUM1 DOES AN INSURANCE SCAM ON IT BUT I AINT GONNA SUPPORT THEM FOR DAT PRICE…

  48. pLaTaNo p0w3r Says:

  49. Anonymous Says:
