Starting today, the Sidekick LX is available for pre-order from Sidekick.com for pre-existing T-Mobile customers. The phone will retain its iconic swivel design, but now coming in two colors -orchid and carbon- and adds features such as GPS-enabled LiveSearch. The Sidekick LX will also feature a 3.2" TFT display, and a 3.2 MP camera. The new Sidekick also features a notably thinner design.
The new Sidekick will also take advantage of T-Mobile's developing 3G network, offering much faster browsing speeds than the previous generation Sidekick. This will come in handy for the social-network loving users who will advantage from the "Communities" section of the LX, which will feature one-click links to Facebook, MySpace and Twitter via an optimized application screen. These applications will also push notifications directly on the homescreen of the Sidekick, letting the user know if they have any events from their friends on their networks.
