As a Sidekick fanboy, I’ve been diligently waiting for Sharp/Danger to produce a Sidekick that doesn’t make me regret switching from the SK2 to SK3. I’ve seen the Sidekick LX and it’s the best incarnation I’ve seen. Not only is it thinner than its predecessors, but the screen is much larger and brighter thanks to Sharp’s AQUOS LCD. The camera remains the same at 1.3-megapixels, but the optics are improved so picture quality is a tad bit better and it comes in two different colors, which is a first to Sidekicks (midnight blue and espresso brown).
This is the powerhouse for both messaging and entertainment. The body of the LX is silky smooth with improved LED to inform you of what’s going on with lights at each corner. It’s trimmed in metal with a faux leather back piece that exudes sophistication. I could go on and on, but all I can say is that it’s the Sidekick we’ve all been waiting for. It’s available October 24th for $299 with a two-year contract.
