Attention Sidekick LX owners, starting this week T-Mobile will start rolling out over-the-air (OTA) updates that will bring some very welcome (and overdue) features to your device.

First announced alongside the Limited Edition Tony Hawk Sidekick LX , the update adds two major capabilities: video record, play, and share; and support for stereo Bluetooth headsets and file transfers. You'll also get some smaller but equally useful features, including an alarm clock, an integrated spell-checker, advanced instant-messaging functions, and more personalization options for the Web. The upgrade is free and it'll be a gradual rollout so if you don't get yours right away, don't freak out. You'll be notified on your device when it's ready to be downloaded. Finally, all T-Mobile Sidekick LX models that ship starting July 29 will come with the added functionality already preloaded on the handset.
