T-Mo Sidekick 2008 Unboxed
T-Mobile's Sidekick 2008 has already been unpacked just a day before its official release and had its pricing revealed through a leak at the TmoNews forums. The images confirm all the details slipped out previously, including the 2-megapixel camera, extra-wide LCD, and replaceable backplates that involve both art patterns as well as sports logos. Video recording is also known to be built-in.
The tip hints that the new Sidekick will already be available in shops on Wednesday and puts pricing below the Sidekick LX it likely replaces, with a 2008 costing $150 after signing a two-year contract and $300 without any commitment. Neither the leak nor T-Mobile has said whether the LX will be discounted or phased out entirely.
