New Sidekick Models Announced
T-Mobile USA, Inc. has announced the release of its highly anticipated new Sidekick models, as well as a video contest in which the winner will receive a grand prize of $10,000.
The new Sidekick models are slated to hit stores this fall and both feature improved applications to make it the optimum messaging tool including a custom-designed MySpace application. The Sidekick LX, designed by Sharp, will be released to the general public Oct 24 and features a thinner profile, a large WQVGA screen with high-definition LCD technology, a camera with flash, multimedia messaging, and mood lights in which users can set different light-up options for communication alerts. The Sidekick LX will be available in a midnight blue or espresso brown color and will be released early to existing T-Mobile customers on Oct 17. For new customers who want to be one of the first to own the Sidekick LX, reservation cards will be available at T-Mobile stores beginning Sept 26 through Oct 17. The card will reserve a Sidekick LX that can be paid for and picked up on Oct 24.
The Motorola designed Sidekick Slide will be available later this fall, shortly after the LX model will be released. This version features a smaller design with a slide up QVGA screen, a compact keyboard and full Sidekick messaging technology available in black with dark purple accents.
