Ed over at Hiptop3 has the scoop on the upcoming Sidekick 2009 aka Blade that we’ve been hearing about for the last few months. According to an internal T-Mobile memo, the new Sidekick LX is going live tomorrow. Yes, the Sidekick 2009 will be the new LX with the older model fading away, which it already has except for the Tony Hawk edition that still resides on the T-Mo website. And that private party on the 21st is probably for the Sidekick and nothing more. But will it launch earlier than the May 13 street date that was leaked a couple weeks ago?
Get Ready for the New Sidekick LX
T-Mobile is preparing to launch the thinnest Sidekick ever, with blazing fast 3G connectivity for customers to connect with friends quickly and easily. The new Sidekick LX will come equipped with GPS enabled Live Search, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and free bundled social networking applications including Facebook, My Space, and Twitter. Customers will also be able to watch and download You Tube videos directly from the device. The new Sidekick LX comes equipped with the features that customers love including a full QWERTY keyboard and an enhanced swivel screen that is larger and sharper than any other Sidekick.
Additional information regarding launch dates, pricing and availablility will be available on the Retail Communication Home Page on April 17.
