Example LX Photos

Monday, October 8th, 2007

These are photographs taken with the Sidekick LX, again by our favorite forum admin.


According to the accompanying blog post for these, these were taken in a complete pitch black room, standing about 4 feet away from the shelf… So it’s a really bright flash now. (Also, who knew he used purex?? :P)


Just a random indoor typical lighting shot. Looks very nice.

Note: These photographs are from poweredbydanger.com, they may or may not be resized as well as compressed some.

Sidekick LX OS Walkthrough

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

The Boy Genius seems to be having a good time with their Sidekick LX. They’ve posted a gallery of OS screenshots, along with some new information.

Believe it or not, the shots we’re showing you actually look better on the device than they will here on your computer monitor (for the most part).

Also stated in the comments from BGR when asked about the Messaging limit and charging, they go on to say

Text messaging limit is still 100, but it looks like you can also save 30 messages on your memory card? It does charge via miniUSB cable, and the browser more or less is the same, but maybe a little quicker…

Only 22 more days…

Thanks to everyone who sent this in.

Sidekick 3 Catalog Purchases Not Transferring to Sidekick LX?

Monday, October 1st, 2007

Busy news day here at Hiptop3… Boy Genius Report has updated their initial look at the Sidekick LX with some new information, that’s somewhat saddening.

“A couple early findings from our Sidekick LX…all ringtones, games, and applications do not transfer over from a Sidekick 3. This mean you’ll need to repurchase everything again. There is a chance this might change as the device is not publicly available, but we doubt it. Also, at this point in time, the Sidekick LX’s Catalog is heavily lacking content…whether developers won’t need to, or haven’t recompiled the apps and games yet, there is only a short few available things to purchase currently in the Application and Games folders.”

They do not say whether it’s displaying that dialog that says something similar to “All your previous purchases will not transfer over to your Sidekick” or if they don’t transfer over simply because they are not yet updated for the Sidekick LX. …More information as it unfolds.

*update*
From phonemaverick’s “Downloading games & apps” YouTube’s video comments..

BGR is right… for an item to work on a new device, developers must essentially create a new app. So, they charge users to download it to new devices. This started with sidekick/hiptop3. If you download an app to a sk/ht3 and lose the device, you can get a new sk/ht3 and the apps will automatically redownload for FREE. BUT if you switch device types (e.g. sk/ht3 to lx or slide), you may need to pay for those apps to work on your new device.

One can only assume the blurred text in the top Left corner just says Sonic Boom.

Sidekick LX Unboxing

Monday, October 1st, 2007

Boy Genius Report got their hands on their own Sidekick LX and have posted a gallery of images along with a Mini review.

…the actual specs of the Sidekick LX have not drastically improved from the Sidekick 3, and a lot of naysayers have been ripping it a new you-know-what, but you really just have to use one yourself to appreciate it. It is definitely thinner and feels right when your typing, IMing, or MMSing on it. The speaker is ridiculously loud and clear, and the screen…wow. It’s just like the Sidekick Slide, except a whole lot bigger.
