The 3G Sidekick LX 2009 should become available for $200 (after mail in rebate), but only for existing T-Mobile customers, while the new customers will have to pay $250 for the appealing texting device. This news comes in order to chase away any confusion, regarding the real price of the new Sidekick.
We remind you that the handset features a very impressive screen, the likes of which you’ve seen on BlackBerry 8900 and BlackBerry Bold, plus an uber-keyboard, the QWERTY kind, for all texting freaks out there. The keys are harder than on the phone’s predecessors, but the typing speed is way higher than the one on a BlackBerry, for example.
Even the 3.2 megapixel camera can provide some satisfaction, as it’s an autofocus unit, that takes sharp pictures, but it only performs brilliantly in optimal lighting.
