Review: Sidekick LX 2009

Form Basics Extras Wrap Up Comments  4  

The Sidekick LX 2009's core competency is messaging. In this regard, it is a success. By bringing Facebook, MySpace and Twitter integration to the fold, all your messaging needs are met. SMS/MMS features are good, but not fantastic. The IM features are exceptionally robust. Unless you're used to business-supported Exchange email, the POP3 capabilities of the LX will be good enough for casual email.

The hardware upgrades, namely the display, 3G radio and higher-megapixel camera, are good improvements, though they don't all match the capabilities of some of the competition. The camera had below average low-light performance. The browser looked great, but wasn't as fast as it could be. The display is simply awesome.

My guess is, for the fervent Sidekick fans out there, none of these quibbles will matter much. It's a definite improvement over previous generations of Sidekick devices. For new users, however, I'd suggest you at least test other phones before choosing the Sidekick LX 2009.
