Video Hands On with the Sidekick LX 2009

Last night T-Mobile threw a party to celebrate the Sidekick LX 2009. Our invitation must have been lost in the mail on the way to San Francisco, but EngadgetMobile was there. They filmed this video playing with the Sidekick LX 2009:

According to the rep for T-Mobile:
– Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter are built in automatically downloaded and installed. Technically they’re actually catalog apps so you can uninstall them if you don’t want them later though.
– YouTube video streaming looks smooth
– You can capture any length of video, but MMS is limited to 30 seconds

    i dont understand why people are upset about the price, remember back in the day when the RAZR came out and it was $500 and everyone and their momma wanted one, and now its free when u get a line with anyone.

    $500 is a reasonable price, thats the average cost of a phone check any website, they just add discounts as well as a MIR and it gives the illusion of being cheaper. it has the exact same features of the G1 minus the touch screen, but if touch screen is the standard now then ive had it since i was 12 when my dad had a PDA that was touch. i dont think touch is the standard i think screen resolution and camera pixels, also user friendly and SHORTCUTS!

    Which is the best thing about the kick press three buttons and ur got there not like on the G1 where u have to run around to find the player, the web, bluetooth basically everything u have to press 600 thousand different buttons to get to. also people tend to forget that with open OS u have a higher chance of the app you download to mess up your phone. like on my friends G1 he downloaded an app to help him send mass texts (WTF?) and every time he does something a fail message comes up about how Android crashed. Also with the iPhone i downloaded alot of apps and they crash my phone, every time i have to restart my phone to get it to work, its ridiculous!

    POINT IS DON’T BE HATEN IF YOU CANT GET IT NOW; WAIT UNTIL THE PRICE DROPS LIKE ALL NEW PHONES DO.

  4. Ruthie Says:

    This looks great so would you say that this would be a better buy than the sidekick 2008? I’m a bit conflicted on which to purchase…

  5. itsNobi Says:

    really? nothing? odd……

  6. parkley Says:

    This videos is all well and good but I think what is on most peoples minds. is the sidekick/hiptop “blade” 2009 deffenetly coming to australia? And would the plan stay the same price and how much should it roughly be to buy outright cause I bet 50% of the people that visit hiptop3.com are australian and I check the site everyday for new post and new info to know if its going to be in australia.
    And another thing what is the date it will be avalible in telstra dealers? Or be announced on the telstra website

    This phone is wack. Get a iPhone 3G. You’ll get this and MORE applications for free in the App Store. This phone is no different from the LX two years ago and who names a phone by the year it’s released? Sidekick LX 09 sounds too dumb and kiddish. That just let’s you know that the phone is no different from the first.

  9. orion Says:

    Is there gonna be an OTAu for the sidekick 2008? With all these new features &the 2008 not being even a year old, there has to be one…right?

  10. ronell Says:

    Dumbass, same goes with Apple renaming the iPhone, the iPhone 3G is no different from the previous iPhone released.

    We’re not aware of any problems, what are you seeing?

  24. meme Says:

    @admin: maybe it’s the pc I’m using in my school’s library… Idk. I don’t see the latest blog of the hd youtube videos and I have the only comment on this particular blog. Weird. I am receiving the emails still though.

  25. meme Says:

    and WTF is up with all of the anonymous posts with random letters? I’m getting pretty annoyed. (yeah, I know this will instigate them to do it even more now that they see this post.)

  26. slidekick user Says:

    I’m seeing the same thing on my mac pro. The High quality video post isn’t there and this post shows no comments.

    However when loading the site on my slide, the HD post is there, as are all the comments.

    I noticed it yesterday, as well as all the random letters posts.

    Sameseyz!
    Site is acting strange.

  28. TPAKicker Says:

    2 BIG questions for me:

    1- Does the camera application have a self- timer? (ie. Samsung Behold)

    2- Does the the Face Book application allow you upload cel-pics to your personal Face Book page? Last time I checked, FB did not support mobile camera uploads. I am hoping this feature is now built in because of the new SK model.

    Thanks.

    I absolutely cannot wait to get my phone. I just ordered it yesterday and didn’t get a confirmation # ( I don’t think) and no Email Confirmation or nothing. A little disturbing. I can’t even check the status of the order.

    The last time I had one was in like 2006 and I MISS it.
    I have never missed a phone out of the 4,000 that I’ve had.

    I’m glad they added the myspace, Twitter and Facebook apps!
