Sidekick LX 2009 OTA update set to fix buggy devices

Got a Sidekick LX 2009?  Find it crashes, freezes, locks-up and generally misbehaves?  Salvation could well be at hand, as a rumored OTA (over-the-air) update is in the offing; according to Hiptop3's sources, the new firmware is currently being trialled by a small group of beta-testers, before the code is released to LX 2009 owners en masse.

There's no clear indication of which issues have been addressed with the new firmware, but given freezing has been reported not only with the core device itself but in its social networking apps (such as the Twitter client) it seems reasonable to assume that it's a relatively comprehensive overhaul.  Any Sidekick LX 2009 users experiencing these problems?  Let us know how you're getting on with your phone in the comments.
