What's this about a Sidekick LX 2009?

Next Story

Uh Oh. Now You Can Suggest Stories To Techmeme Via Twitter

Well, isn’t this a kick in the pants. As TmoNews was reporting earlier that a 3G Sidekick could be in the works, Ed over at Hiptop3 just sent this our way. One of his readers sent in an image from a survey he/she/it took at QuizPoints and, well, the title pretty much says it all. Of course, we’ll wait to get some more evidence to say a 3G Sidekick is coming, but it certainly looks legit. So, what’s new or purported for the LX 2009? The print is small so you better hit the jump.

If the above features make it into the next generation Sidekick then MS, Danger and T-Mobile have hit the jackpot. They’re a little late to the party by all accounts, but this is definitely the upgrade loyal Sidekick users have been waiting for. With direct access to YouTube, 3G, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera along with the rest of the software upgrades could you ask for anything more?
