Today T-Mobile and Sharp announced the latest iteration of the Sidekick line of messaging devices, the Sidekick LX 2009. This new Sidekick retains most of the general features of the previous Sidekicks, with full QWERTY keyboard, trackball and gaming keys, but manages to have a larger, 3.2-inch high-definition swivel screen and a smaller footprint. It will have built-in MySpace, Facebook and Twitter clients, as well as the option to download Microsoft Exchange Active Sync via the Sidekick Download Catalog (for a fee). The Sidekick LX 2009 has a host of other improvements, including 1700MHz HSPA, a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, GPS, and Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP. The Sidekick LX 2009 will be available via pre-order to current T-Mobile subscribers for $200. General retail availability will start on May 13, though pricing has not yet been determined.

That Swivel

Sidekicks are okay phones, and lord knows they're enhancing it a lot with this new model (awesome) but when will they start shying away from that swivel? I know its part of what makes a sidekick cool but when it comes down to it I would still choose the sidekick slide over this model just so i don't have the hassle of the swivel breaking on me in a year.
Maybe if you were more careful the swivel wouldn't break. I recently saw a buddy with the SK3 and the swivel was just as sturdy as any newer models I have seen.

I wonder if you will finally be able to bluetooth ringtones. Probably not and have to deal with only music from the sidekick store. I hate my sidekick, can't wait until my contract is up so I can never touch one again.

Very Nice

Seems real nice and about time, shows TMO is serious about providing decent 3g phones, nice compliment to the G1 and future Android offerings.

High speed upload and download. This should rock.
