T-Mobile announce the Sidekick LX and Sidekick Slide releaseAfter quite a long time of speculation and rumored pictures, T-Mobile and Danger have unveiled both the Sidekick LX and the Sidekick Slide. The two new mobile communication gadgets are both pretty cool but might each be targeted to a slightly different set of people.

The Sidekick LX looks to be the new, latest and greatest Sidekick with a wider QVGA display, mood lighting with LED lights that blink with alerts and a 1.3 megapixel camera with flash. It also comes with a 128MB microSD card. The Sidekick Slide comes in a little smaller package measuring 4.6 x 2.4 x 0.68 inches and is from Motorola. It doesn’t have the swivel display like the traditional Sidekicks but also doesn’t skimp on features as its set up the same as the LX.

Advertisment picture of the Sidekick LX launch dateThe folks over at Hiptop3 have come across some classically blurry rumor-mill photos of the new upcoming Sidekick LX along with an advertisement showing a launch date. The ad shows that the new LX will be available on October 24 where you’ll be able to “kick it to the next level”. So, to answer all of your questions about the release date; I would still file this under “rumors” but just over a month away is the best thing we could find so far.

The advertisement flier also states the that the Sidekick LX will feature 24/7 access to MySpace and a larger, sharper screen. The actual small-print text and an equally blurry photo of the Sidekick LX itself after the jump.

Possible release party for the Sidekick LX Sidekick SlideThe folks over at HipTop3 came across some information on MySpace that leads us to believe that T-Mobile may be planning a launch party for a new Sidekick in October.

DJ AM, who has played for the previous T-Mobile launch parties of the Sidekick II and Sidekick 3, has October 16th blocked out for another private party with T-Mobile. This would also be good timing for the launch as well, with the holiday shopping season approaching.
