T-Mobile unveiled the new Sidekick LX featuring for the first time 3G on Sidekick. If you do not need 3G for web browsing then the T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 is still a valid option. The Sidekick 2008 still ranks as the 6th most popular phone on LetsTalk. That the Sidekick 2008 is free with new service plan on LetsTalk sure helps.

The T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 is a slim, sleek, stylish device measuring 4.7 x 2.3 x 0.7 inches (HxWxD) and weighing around 4.5 oz. The 1030 mAh Lithium Ion battery provides up to 5 Hours talk time and power for up to 4 days in the standby mode. The buyers also get an extra battery with charger. The phone also includes an external 512 mb MicroSD card for adding multimedia files and pictures. You can save up to 2,000 contacts with its large phonebook capacity and can store up to 1,000 entries through its built-in calendar.
The T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 provides capturing of every moment with crystal clear images from the 2.0 megapixel digital camera that features LED flash and self-portrait. You can enlarge or print the high-quality pictures that you take with the camera.

The T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 has a horizontal swivel screen and full QWERTY keyboard (manufactured by Sharp) makes it looks extremely sweet. The T-Mobile Sidekick 2008's 2.6" LCD, 400 x 240 pixel color display lets you view each and every thing in a clear way. This high resolution display makes use of up to 65,000 colors. On this screen, personalized Web surfing: PC-like, full-size layout or standard Sidekick screen-size layout to scroll and read a page; use Mini Page to zoom out on an overview of an entire Web page and the ability to save images from Web pages to the microSD card provokes the internet savvy people to opt for this device.

Music lovers can listen to their favorite music using the MP3 player, which also supports MP3, AAC, and WMA formats. The devise also provides real web browsing capabilities with more pages and better Web content delivered efficiently to your phone.

Through multimedia messaging the user can send and receive pictures. You can send unlimited text messages to your contacts and start chatting with friends and family using the built-in instant messenger (includes Yahoo, AOL, and MSN). You can use the email client supported by POP3, IMAP, SSL and APOP at your own will and up to 8 accounts can be created, compatible with both MS Outlook and Exchange.

A nice thing about The T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 is that it offers customizable shells for extra personalization. The phone also features stereo Bluetooth support and a 2-megapixel camera with video recording and playback. The handheld continues to offers strong messaging capabilities. However in our opinion, the portion where some major drawbacks lies are the lack of inclusion of Wi-Fi or 3G support (see the new Sidekick LX for that) which would have been nice. The phone's speaker is also very soft, and the video recording and playback is limited.

More details on the T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 deal can be found on LetsTalk.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
