Oh, I see how it is. Tonight, A-list celebrities will gather in Hollywood to attend the launch party for the T-Mobile Sidekick LX--no doubt sipping the finest champagne, pecking at scrumptious hors d'oeuvres, and receiving their very own LX to take home with them. And the rest of us? Well, we get to line up at our local T-Mobile store starting at 8 a.m., tomorrow (first sale at 9 a.m.) along with all the other customers who are looking to get their hands on the new Sidekick. Hmm, yeah ... sounds just as fun.

All kidding aside, there will be a kickoff event at all T-Mobile stores nationwide tomorrow where you can purchase the Sidekick LX (in midnight blue or espresso brown) for $299.99 with a two-year contract. As a quick reminder, new features on the LX include an improved display that shows 65,000 colors at a 400x240 pixel resolution, a trimmer form factor, and MySpace Mobile integration. We just got the device, so check back tomorrow for our full review.
