T-Mobile dates G2X and Sidekick 4G for April 20

T-Mobile on Thursday set out ship dates and pricing for two of its halo phones for the spring. The G2X flagship is now known to cost $200 after a contract and a $50 rebate and will ship to stores on April 20, with online orders heading out on April 15. The Sidekick 4G was already priced at $100 on a contract but should head out at the same April 20 date as its fellow Android counterpart.

The G2X is a direct adaptation of LG's Optimus 2X and shares its dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2, four-inch screen, and front and back cameras mated to a lightly customized Android 2.2. It chiefly adds native 14.4Mbps 3G for T-Mobile's network. Our test at CTIA (linked above) showed the combination to be very fast on the web and in gaming, and made the G2X one of our picks of the show.

The Sidekick 4G is slower and shares many of its roots with the Galaxy S 4G, including the single-core 1GHz Hummingbird processor and 21Mbps 3G. It shares some elements in common with Danger's old Sidekick line, including the center-mounted slider and jump keys, but is much closer to regular Android with only selective skins to tie it back to the original interface.
