T-Mobile Sidekick LX (2009)

 

T-Mobile adds a gorgeous display, 3G data, and GPS capability to its addictive messaging phone.

There’s no doubt this is a much-improved Sidekick. Its 3G support, integration with social networks, and beautiful display all make it an excellent device for its target audience, and that’s all on top of the existing keyboard and swivel screen that...

T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 review

 

T-Mobile's Sidekicks have been cult favorites stretching all the way back to the original grayscale model -- a device with a design only a mother could love, may we add -- when it launched nearly seven years ago. Though the unusual form factor with ...

T-Mobile Sidekick LX (2009)

 

The new Sidekick LX lets you bombard Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook with your personal views.

Super-high-resolution screen. Big, luxurious keyboard. Very good Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter clients.

Very large. Lots of harsh noises and flashing lights. E-mail functionality is behind the times. ; Watch the T-Mobile Sidekick LX!

T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 Review

 

The latest version of T-Mobile's Sidekick LX is the first in this series with high-end features, like mobile broadband service and a very high-resolution screen. Jen Edwards brings us a review of this smartphone.

T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 Review

 

There are a few tradeoffs, but all in all the Sidekick can really help you stay connected for $175 with a new two-year contract

Everything you need to stay connected, from email to social networking ; Excellent e-mail and chat management ; Large, bright screen ; Excellent volume and sound quality when using the external speaker

Relatively large; you may not want to carry it in your pocket ; Limited selection of add-on software applications, many with recurring monthly fees ; Video playback quality is disappointing ; Strange hisses and pops when using headphones to listen to...

I wouldn't recommend it to folks who talk more than they text, but if you're the type who is more concerned with email, chat, and social networking than actual voice communication, the Sidekick LX may be your perfect mobile companion

Review: Sidekick LX 2009

 

Sharp brings a wealth of improvements to the latest Sidekick in the LX 2009. Messaging and the display dazzle, but some features fizzle.

T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009

 

The display isn't touch-sensitive, but it is ideal for web surfing, and the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 supports social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and YouTube. This is pretty much in line with the Sidekick's youthful target market.

T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 Review

 

The T-Mobile Sidekick LX is well-built piece of hardware combined with a customized Windows Mobile interface that some may love (teenagers?) but we don't see it replacing any mobile warrior's BlackBerries, iPhones or G1′s anytime soon.
