T-Mobile have released the Sidekick LX 2009, the latest version of the popular messaging handset. The first of the range to support 3G, as we found in our review the Sidekick LX 2009 offers an incredible screen, GPS and a decent nod toward the latest social networking fashions with MySpace, Facebook and Twitter clients.
Battery life for the sizable handset is rated at up to 5.5hrs talktime or 8 days standby, plus there's a 3.2-megapixel camera which supports video recording and geotagging. In the box T-Mobile throw in a 128MB microSD card, but we'd recommend picking up a larger one online if you intend to use the media functionality of the LX 2009.
The T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 is available to order online now, in either "carbon" (as in our photos) or "orchid" finish. It's priced at $249.99 after a $150 instant discount and $50 mail-in rebate.
