The T-Mobile Sidekick LX is slated to launch in late October and the wait for some must be unbearable. But Boy Genius managed to get his hands on the upcoming Sidekick LX and has the live pics to prove it. The Sidekick LX isn’t a major improvement over the Sidekick 3, but it’s the little things that seem to make the difference. Boy Genius came away impressed with the successor to the Sidekick 3.
The thinner, lighter feel of the device and crisp display garnered the Sidekick LX some kudos from Boy Genius, as did the trademark Sidekick-QWERTY keyboard and rubberized backside. Unfortunately, lack of WiFi and 3G are a couple of Sidekick LX downers. And it seems that ringtones, games, and applications from your Sidekick 3 won’t be transferable to the Sidekick LX. Still, the Sidekick LX seems to be a definite improvement and could very well be worth the price for those looking to get that “new” feeling back on their Sidekick.
Keep your pants on, the Sidekick LX is still about a month away (the end of this month), so you’re going to have to satisfy yourself with some live, unboxing pics, courtesy of Boy Genius.
