Update on SKLX09: Custom Shells!! Laser Etching!!!

sklx2009_black_closed_phone

According to this recent CNET Review, the Sidekick LX 2009 will have Custom Shells after all (available in the summer). Also Custom “Laser etching” will be available:

“The smartphone is available in two colors: carbon or orchid. However, if you’re not a fan of the colors, you will be able to create custom shells for the Sidekick LX, much like the T-Mobile Sidekick 2008, and T-Mobile’s even added the option of laser etching the case. Custom shells will be available starting this summer. “

    To Bebe: Oh lol, right now I just miss my Sidekick 3, I gave it to my Stepmom to borrow due to the fact that her RAZR crapped out on her, it’s old and now it doesn’t want to turn on. I miss it for the fact that it has no hissing on calls and I could hear when the call drops or someone hangs up, they lowered that sound too much on the ’08 oh well I will get used to that as time flies. But that’s good to know about the MP3’s, I am alittle disappointed that the mp3’s sound too soft through the earphones, on the Sidekick 3 they were louder through the earphones, but through the speaker, the ’08 is louder than the 3. I can’t wait to get the LX’09. How does the keyboard feel for you on that sidekick? Are the keys like the ’08 and original LX’07 or do they feel a bit like the Sidekick 3?

    I was playing salsa on mine without phones,speaking I forgot we can listen to Winamp/Shoutcast radio on it.Windows uses Pandora music on their blog sites last I knew and that would be great to listen too also.

    This is my first kick but I do like how it fits in my hands,and I’ll get use the keys,I like everything about it except the use of my own pics and songs for ringers(the site I was using won’t accept me for some reason).

    A TMO rep was telling me hopefully I’ll or someone else will find a way around it or updates will change that since it’s still early.I’d like to make my own themes don’t want anyone else’s jusy need a boost to get going.

    I like the other goodies you can do with it better than what I’ve owned in the past.I killed off the extra stuff that can drain te battery and short,longer here and there.

    To Bebe: I played with an LX’09 today, it wasn’t a fake one that they have at the stands at the store it was a real one, the representative pulled it out from under the desk but it was turned off, I flipped the screen and I was like “…wow…the keyboard here looks better than the ’08 and it even feels better” the screen does feel alittle harder to open, it reminded me of my Sidekick 2 which is a bit harder to open and that’s good because the ’08 opens too easily, more easy than the Sidekick 3. I like the carbon one 🙂 my dad is already seriously thinking about getting it for me because I told him more news about it and for the fact that it has hearing aid support, my only fear of having it now is the fact that I would have 2 sidekicks under warranty and I wouldn’t know which one to use more since they would both be under warranty at the same time, only a month different. My dad goes “they’re the same size” lol!! I told him “the LX’09 and the ’08 are NOT the same size, the ’08 is smaller, the screen is smaller, didn’t you see how big the screen was on that LX’09??” plus the weight of the LX’09 felt just about right for me, it reminded me of my Sidekick 3, same exact weight in my hands, only it’s bigger but its a perfect size, better looking than the LX’07 and I think you would agree too. 🙂

    Why can I download video content from “youtube” & nowhere else? I’m not on “facebook”, “blackplanet” or “twitter” & I haven’t gone to “myspace”, there’s nothing I wanna see there.

    Mr Gray,we can only watch videos from You Tube and no where else because there’s no Flash supported but for that.Maybe possible in the future if MS decides to add Windows Mobile to it but for right now that’s it.

    You can upload videos to My Space with videos,delete all those apps if you don’t have no use for the social network but if one day you decide to,you’ll have to re buy them again.

    Go thru these blogs and you’ll find answers you question of.

    I have read about the custom shells and laser and it ” claimed that it will come out this summer. Well right now, it is the Middle of July and all the people better not hope the custom shells and laser comes out because this is a hoax, or a rip off because there is no way that there will be laster etching or custom shells Like the sidekick 2008 or Geeko as ” people ” called it for the sidekick 3G 2009. there is abousutely 100% it will never come out so get over it.
