Sidekick LX: Blue or Brown?

Sidekick LX BrownSidekick LX BlueSidekick LX Street Date
Confirmed by T-Mobile’s Best Buy’s computers and a rebellious employee, the guys at Danger/T-Mobile are apparently taking after Microsoft and are offering the Sidekick LX in colors that remind us of the Zune. Yes, the Sidekick LX will be available not only in the blue/black color that we’ve already seen, but will also come in brown. (No word on a white one yet) As far as what shade of brown, we haven’t heard yet. A T-Mobile rep contacted us and let us know it is listed as Espresso Brown. Wouldn’t this color have been more appropriate for the SKiD guys?

One surprising thing to note from the pictures is that T-Mobile’s system says there’s a street date of 10-21-2007. One can guess that this means that T-Mobile stores will have the device on the 21st. So bribery and sweet-talking an employee just might get you a sneak peak.

Oh, and one more thing. There will be LEDs around the body of the device that flash with alerts.

  12. hamilton Says:

    Not relli ne new features

    The new screen (higher resolution on the LX than you get on most Windows Mobiles phones) is certainly welcome. And T-Mobile is FINALLY enabling MMS support. I’m disappointed that it can’t do video (thus far). And I worry about how long it’ll be before apps get rewritten for the new OS and screen resolution. I rely on MoneyClip a whole lot. (Yeah, I could just wait a while before upgrading, but my Sidekick 3 is acting up.) I’m VERY pleased about the screen upgrade though.

    Those pictures look like that of Best Buy’s RSS system, a search engine for their inventory, and not of a t-mobile computer.
