Posted on February 2nd, by Kim Poh Liaw in archive, featured. 16 comments

The Sidekick LX messaging phone is said to have 3G/GPS equipped for its new 2009 version. According to the info found in a survey, the new Sidekick LX 2009 will also have a 3.2 megapixel camera, pre-installed social networking softwares, 3.2-inch WVGA screen and microSD card slot.

The social networking softwares will allow direct access to sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube. It will also have blog publishing client and photobucket management. Other than the major enhancements and upgrades, Danger is developing the new Sidekick LX 2009 to use the NetBSD, an open source OS.

    If this rumored Sidekick offers all the things mentioned in the article, I would buy it. The only thing I don’t like is the name…Sidekick Blade…it kinda reminds me of the Motorola Razor…

    I thiinkk it should DEFFENETALLY have a touchh screen….. i was gunna get it untill i heardd itt diidntt =/

  • htcdream

    Why should it have a touch screen that’s the stupidest idea. It has a full keyboard and every button you need to make it function. Just reading your comments make me angry cos you guys are such fucking nerds. If u want a touchscreen sidekick then why don’t you make your own.
